he was wormed 3 weeks ago.

been to the vet, and harry has colitis, and is on antibiotics and a special diet.
he had an injection to settle the excess acid in his tummy, and he is now just sleeping, he's not normally this quiet!

I had to bring Daisy Boo to the vet for something similar last week. She was straining to poo and it got to the stage where she was screeching. Turns out it was swelling around the anus and not constipation as I originally thought. The vet gave her a painkiller that put her into a very deep sleep and liquid paraffin to ease passage! She's fine now though and I'm sure Harry will be back to himself in a day or two. (BTW, if anyone is wondering - the swelling was a side effect of her heat)

So glad your Harry is ok. I said a prayer for him. When I read it this morning it was after 9 so I didnt reply then as figured you would be at the vet. I am sure he will be fine in a couple of days.

good luck!!

wow, that reminds me of what me and zack have been going through. hopefully harry's colitis will resolve with the diet and medicine. when i first got zack when he was a week shy of 4 months, he had bloody diarrhea, the vet gave him flagyl for it, but didn't put him on a special diet and didn't give him a shot for his stomach. she said the flagyl would work really fast probably and it did. the diarrhea stopped a few hours after starting the medication. but it came back a few days after he finished the medication.

How old is harry? I sympathize with your pain, it's been hard to watch my wiggle worm puppy be all still and quiet because he's some kind of sick. my daughter's cavalier, Belle, suddenly had diarrhea in her crate which was really out of character, and then she vomited. their vet guessed that she had eaten something harmful, who knows what, she tries to eat lots of things. but their vet gave her some kind of medication and put her on a special diet. And she got all better after that. i hope harry will be completely fine very soon.
