Last Saturday, a little over a week ago, Miles got pretty sick with vomiting and diarrhea. We were out of town visiting my brother and his family, and it wouldn't surprise me if my small nephews thought it would be fun to slip Miles some of their dinner under the table (Miles normally doesn't get ANY table food). Anyway, when we got back into town on Monday night, I took Miles to the emergency vet to get fluids and tests run. They ruled out Addison's disease and pancreatitis, and determined that he probably just ate something that didn't agree with him. On Tuesday morning, he still had diarrhea, so he spent the day at the vets getting more fluids and antibiotics.
Since then, his poop has been more "normal" but his schedule has been a bit off. He usually poops about twice a day, and it's been once a day for the past few days. While it is definitely more solid now than it was, sometimes it's still a bit mushy (sorry, this is gross, I know). The vet told me to feed him rice for a few days, since it's easier on the stomach. I've been slowly mixing more of his dog food in with the rice to get him back on a normal diet.
After having a pretty nasty bout of diarrhea (4 days), how long does it take for their system to finally regulate and get back on track?

Try Benebac. I used it for Kaji on another YTers recommendation and it worked. I used the small animal one since it works for animals up to 10 lbs.

MilesDavis, it's so tough to predict the recovery time - sometimes, they snap right back and it seems other times they can be a bit off with digestion for weeks (ie, soft/different, but not diarrhea).
