    Default 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?

    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.
    One more thing you could try that works well if this is intestinal, rice with a bit of hamburg all broke up (cooked of course not raw) in some warm broth. That is tolorated much much more than dog foods for a while till the tummy gets back to normal, and he feels like he can resume eating his reg food. 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.

    I know this is an old post but in case anyone ends up here with the same issues I'd like to offer IMO some suggestions. Yes, I've had the same thing happen with my last pup and it cleared up just as fast as it came on by using 100% pure pumpkin in a can (not pumpkin pie mix in the can, that includes spices in it) will also help with diarrhea just as it does with constipation. Found in grocery stores & in some pet stores. Also, the brand "Fruitable" makes a pourable carton of pumpkin that works for common digestion issues that might result from switching food types/brands over & makes the transition easier on the GI track for the dogs. Regarding previous comments in this thread, where I live the only vaccine my dog has to get by law is rabies. As for the other vaccines my dog gets his core vaccines until he's 2 years of age then we can get titers done to check their immunity levels. That doesn't cover all of them unfortunately, so they still get some vaccines annually. We also take advantage of getting the 3 year rabies vaccine to cut back on how many he's getting every year. Also where I live we have a lot of deer ticks so I make sure my dogs get the Lyme vaccine every year still. I've had friend's dog's end up with Lyme Disease & it makes life very uncomfortable for the dogs once that happens. I still protect them from ticks & fleas with the Seresto Collar that lasts 8 months (but I've changed over to a new one earlier once since I'd ordered it & arriving earlier than expected & since I had I & no harm done... just remembered to update my calendar for the next one!) & do checks everytime we come in from walking outside.
    Below is again just in my opinion (IMO) regarding another previous comment in this thread:
    Regarding people getting the flu after getting a flu vaccine. I realize this is an old post but, the flu vaccines given currently is not a live virus like in the nasal spray vaccine that used to be given. It's a flu shot now a days. Please keep in mind there's always a chance you've been exposed to the flu virus either before or in the 2 weeks after getting your flu shot, while your body builds up the antibodies to fight the virus, which could result in someone still getting the flu even after getting vaccinated. The live virus flu vaccine given as a nasal spray has NOT been recommended to be given by the CDC in the United States in recent years. Please refer to this link below for information in the United States regarding the flu virus & the flu vaccine. (this link was last updated on March 30, 2018) https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season...-2017-2018.htm
    Good luck to anyone that finds themself in this position with a sick dog and I hope it clears up quickly if not definitely see a vet as soon as possible. Especially if this happens in an older dog or one with other underlying conditions. But this did happen to my young healthy pup before even turning 1 while still receiving his core vaccines. I do agree that sometimes they do over vaccinate but please do your research because everyone has their own opinions and knowledge is the best. Speak up & ask questions & ask for copies of all your records & if you're not comfortable then maybe switch veterinarians. Especially if they won't provide you with the information you're requesting or if they don't want to answer your questions. The majority of a veterinarian's profits come from those vaccines they're pushing on you so if you're not comfortable then I'd ask for titers to be done & then you'll see if there's been any immunity built up or not so then you can make your decisions about what vaccines you're dog is getting. If they don't offer you the titers then I'd find another vet that does & you can always go back if you do decide you want whatever they're recommending. Please be careful making your decisions on vaccines & don't decide to not vaccinate just from reading something online that might've been written by someone that's not even professionally educated on the subject a lot of people have a lot of opinions. Be careful & responsible. Just make the best judgment you can for your fur baby. They can't speak for themself so be the best advocate you can be for them! :-)
