    Hi Mrs. Crilly, we started off feeding Charlie on the food the breeder gave us but then switched to Red Mill. We bought the pedigree puppy pouches and mixed some of that with the Red Mill and that make his poo VERY runny so we stopped giving him that and we just stick with the Red Mill and give it to him twice a day and dry and he loves it. It's possible it could be the pedigree pouch causing his problem??

    Hi Inca

    It was the smallest size bag they had in the shop, next door have been thinking of getting a puppy so I told them they can have some food if they are stuck. He does not touch the pouches when I put them out so it will be the Red Mills if anything.

    Anyway taking him to the vets tonight so hopefully we will find out whats wrong.

    I still think it's best to see the vet soon as possible because, Dylan has been ill recently with diarrhoea that was only as soft as ice cream, not watery, and he had a bacteria in his stool called Campylobacter. It started on 19th December and he is still on antibiotics (even though stools are firm now). He had two lots of antibiotics, one to heal his insides (he only had two pin head size dots of blood), then when the test results came back, another antibiotic to kill the bacteria. He will have another stool sample sent to the lab a week after the meds are finished.

    Hi Pauline

    Strangely enough I have heard of the bacteria but only cos my friend is an enviromental health officer and she did her thesis on it for college! I thought it was to do with food hygiene. Did the vet know what caused it?

    They said he could have picked it up anywhere. I am super fussy about hygiene in the house, even his dry food is stored in the larder which is colder than the fridge this time of year. So we will never know. I have read a human can be infected from contact with an infected animal stool so as dogs make contact with other dogs poos sometimes, maybe it was passed this way.

    Hi Girls

    I took Ted to the vet, he has a little stomach bug, apparently there is one going around at the moment! She gave him an injection to settle his tummy and some antibiotics for the next 5 days also. Phew panic over!!!

    No but I actually had a sample in the kitchen and I forot to bring it with me, I explained the symptoms and that was enough, she had already had 3 dogs in with the same complaint from the area. Sure I am just thinking that Ted loves eating my runners, he must have picked it up from them, there are quite a few dogs on my road??

    well as long as your satisfied with the diagnosis my vet just knows me too well to ever prescribe anti-biotics without a sample check if i were concerned
    he says thats why he is a poor vet i reckon he's kidding me

    hope all clears up soon
