Help-diarrhea and bloody stool
Help-diarrhea and bloody stool
Hi. My dog (heinz 57) weighs around 40 lbs & 2 yrs old. About 2 days ago I notice he was having diarrhea and vomiting. Yesterday, the vomiting ceased, but the diarrhea remained. Took him to the vet, they gave him an antibiotic-(wasn't able to examine him) he's got alot of anxiety issues with the vet. On 8/20, he received the parvo/bordetello/rabies, etc. shots. Is it possible that like humans, after they get the flu shot and get the flu that a dog could develop parvo?
They asked if his stool was bloody, and at the time I told them no, but last night he had an accident in the house and it is bloody.
He hasn't had anything to eat since Tues evening, just water.
Has anyone else had this problem?
to the owner of Heinz 57
I am sorry you and the pup are having to deal with this, yes, I have had a couple dogs have those issues as well. My pups or fur pets etc..........had from and infection to actually something fatel and we lost him It was so very sad and IMO there ARE some shots out their we are told ( oh they Have to have that) well it has also been proven in some cases with my horses that that in fact some injections were given the horses ended up passing on FROM the shot itself! And one shot that was being given to mares that were pregnant, very many lost the babies while preg. or they foals were dead when born Also I think it is a great idea to get on the net and read all we can about any shots that would be given to our pets, what the reasons are for them, and what are the effects , outcome,risks etc.

I so hope Heinze gets beeter very soon, sorry I didn't see this post the first day you posted it. I hope I have been able to help at least a little bit. Good luck , to you and the pup.
I do that, so there have been shots I have just plain said NO to, as I thought they may be much better off without them
ritchiearice - I'm also sorry to hear about your dog. My first puppy was sick for a week with similar symptoms. The antiobiotics I received from my vet seemed to work the first time this happened....but a year later he (my pup) became sick again with the same type of diarrhea. This is when I decided to try an alternative to 'normal' prescriptions. I did some research and asked friends for recommendations and finally came across a product by Thorne research and it seemed to work great. I've personally tried both physician prescribed remedies and natural/homeopathic remedies for my own illnesses and honestly feel that the natural remedies were just as responsesive...so I've become a believer over the years in natural cures. There's a lot of info out there so I"m sure you'll have no trouble finding more about this field but let me know if you have any questions and maybe I can point you in the right direction.
Sry - just realized this message was from august
