diarrhoea

Q Shaun asks:

My chocolate lab has had bad diarrhoea (like water) for about a week, he has been to the vet and she said his booster can cause it, but I think it is lasting a bit too long. He is eating and drinking OK but just can't keep it in, I got some diarrhoea tablets on Friday but they don't seem to be working. Can I try anything else? Thanks Shaun Daysley

Q Our vet says: Apart from the medication you say you have been given for him it would be helpful if you did not let him have any food at all for 12 to 24 hours (make sure he has access to plenty of water) then give him something very bland such as chicken and rice or white fish and pasta for a few days until the diarrhoea clears up. Give him several small meals during the day as you would for a puppy rather than just one or two large meals. If your dog still does not seem to get better after a couple of days, or he becomes lethargic, depressed or otherwise unwell take him back to your vet.
