My little Indy is just 2.5 months old.
I've had him for about 2 weeks.
For a few days everything was okay, and then I noticed he was scooting his butt on the floor. I took him to the vet thinking maybe he had worms (although he had had a checkup about 2 weeks prior and was negative for worms) and they told me they weren't 100% sure why he was doing it but they excreted his anal sacs since that was the likely culprit.
The next day he started having diarrhea in the afternoon. Every 20 min pooping and then sleeping, so I took him back to the vet.
They said he might have a virus or something and they gave me medical food and amoxy-clav which is an antibiotic.
Later that night he threw up the medical food, but the next day he seemed to be 100% and during this whole ordeal he was still playful and seemingly happy.
When the medical food ran out, I gradually integrated him to a new type of food (From Bento-Kronen to Hills which is what the vet recommended), and although he wasnt eating the recommended amount he seemed to eat enough and be happy and playful. He probably has 2 more doses of the antiobiotic left, one for tonight and one for tomorrow.
This morning everything was fine, but this afternoon he woke up from a nap and promptly regurgitated some liquid/solid mixture. He didn't even stand up, just sorta leaned over and regurgitated and then kinda went back to sleep. I woke him a bit more to clean it up. Then he had a part-solid, part-diarrhea bowel movement. I have given him very very small bites of two types of treats because I have been trying to teach him his name, but he's eaten them for a few days no problem, so I'm not sure this is an issue.
I cleaned that up and I even wiped his bum a bit (I have wondered if the butt-scooting thing is just simply irritation or itchiness rather than worms or anal glands).
A few minutes later he made lots of squeals as though he were hurt, then stopped.
I checked him to see if everything was alright, and he seems just fine.
He licked my hand, and seems relatively normal now....but the regurgitation/partial diarrhea/unprompted squealing have left me feeling very unsettled.
I called the vet again and they said to monitor him, give him a mixture of his old food (Bento-Kronen) and his new food (Hills), make sure he drinks enough, and to let them know if I want to come back in for a checkup (My checkups are free so maybe I'll do it no matter what).
I'm just not sure what's going on!
Maybe none of this is related or maybe it's all related?
He has had 2 out of 3 of his major vaccinations, kennel cough, and de-worming medication.
Can anyone help shed some light on all of this or offer me some advice?
I don't want to keep switching up his food, but I think since he seemed to enjoy his old food it might not be a bad idea to go back to it (he's been with the new stuff for about 5 days)....is this even a food related issue?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts, advice, and (hopefully) encouragement?
