Need some advice!
Bella has had diarreah for about a week and a half now. Her stool is like toothpaste. I have already taken her to the vet for a checkup and stool sample and everything came back normal
I haven't changed foods, snacks and i'm sure she hasn't gotten into anything.
She won't eat chicken and rice and i have been giving her Nutra-cal every other day. Her appetite is normal and she's playful.
I know that she will be coming into heat soon so do u think it could have something to do with that? Ruby went into heat before she was spaied and never had any diarreah.
She has a normal amount of bowel movements a day so it's not like she's constantly pooping but its just always diarreah.
Athina, Ruby, Bella

Here's what I'd give...
I would ask if you could get a few doses of metronidazol (sp?). This drug is your friend! lol
Especially if she's not having any other symptoms. Give your vet a call and see!

Your vet should have given you something to stop it.... My vet prescribed Albon for my 3 little ones I gave Chicken Jerky to (they all got the runs!!).... After giving them all the Albon they were back to regular stools within that day....
I hope your little one is feeling better soon... keep her hydrated!
