We have a White German Shepherd 9 month old. Looking for ideas. All went well until he ate some rotting squash in the garden, not much but enough. The vet helpped us get him back on track but having a hard time finding a solution to loose stools that occur 50% of the time, on occasion it can be close to diarrhea. Started him on Dr Tims, then Call of The Wild prairie, now Call of the Wild venison. There is no lack of energy, pain, or any negative demeanor about him, and he gets plenty of exercise. He is a high energy dog.November 6, 2016 at 1:02 pm #91251 Report AbuseanonymousMember
How long ago did this happen? What did the vet advise? Did you try a bland or semi-bland diet such as boiled hamburger and white rice? No free feeding…
It may just take some time to resolve.November 9, 2016 at 2:39 am #91288 Report AbuseSusanParticipant
Hi your boy may need top see a vet & get a course of Metronidazole, Metronidazole is an antibiotic for the bowel & stomach it fixes things up. My boy always gets put on Metronidazole when his diarrhea or yellow sloppy poos start he has IBD.. German Shepherds are prone to EPI, IBD & IBS, I would be seeing a vet…
