Default Whisper has the runs... Diarehhea.

Well, it started at 12:30 this morning. And she woke me up every hour after that. And messed her crate, because I was at school, and my grandma came at 1:00 p.m. If it continues into tomorrow, we are going to call the vet. And I'm not going to school. Because she kept me up pretty much. Because she needed to GO! And I know her pain on diarehhea. It sucks. Any suggestions? Thank you for reading!

Canned pumpkin . . . . and look around to see if there are any signs she's eaten something that might be causing it.

Wish your parents would take her on in today - she could have an intestinal blockage causing it, and that's not only dangerous, it's very painful. Try feeling around on her abdomen and see if it seems to be distended or painful or if there's a hard spot in her intestines.

She did eat half the kong. And red stuff was in her poop, that looked like the kong. I checked it daily, to make sure she didn't have anything wrong with it. And that she wouldn't swallow anything. I can go, by myself, since I have my liscense. But I don't know...

If she ate half a kong that could be the problem . . . . . Why don't you call the vet and see if what they recommend you do?

Yes, I agree. Half a kong is nothing to sneeze at. There could be some larger pieces stuck somewhere. I think a visit to the vet is wise. Keep us posted. I hope he's OK.

Is she on parasite control at all?
Is there anything toxic that she could have gotten into?
Is she vomiting at all?
Does she have abdominal pain when you squeeze(gentley)?
Does your other dog have the same symptoms?
Does she have a fever?
Is their blood in your stool?

She could have a number of different things wrong.. a vet is really theo nly way to tell

We took her to the vet last night everyone. She did have a fever. 1 degree above. And he gave her some medicine, and a can of bland diet. If this doesn't help, he said call him again. So everything is fine. We told him about the kong too. I'll keep watching her. Shes doing great this morning, no runny poop. (yet)
