    Default Get welll soon

    Get well soon Tara, my thoughts are with you, when we collected Woody on the Saturday, we were up the vets on the thursday as he had runny, green like poo with bloody in it..... he had injections, tablets, good bacteria - as they thought worms, lung worms or upset stomach - tried all different food, then I asked the vet for sensitive food as everything else I had tried did not work - first meal he had 20 minutes later a proper poo, which we tried it in the first place... he was such a good boy thought as he did try to get to his wee mats......

    Sorry to hear Tara's not well, we had the exact same problem with Sam when he was a puppy and it took a while for his tummy to settle down. The vet had ruled out everything, we tried different foods and different ways of giving it to him, eventually, he got better but it was a long haul.

    Hope Tara gets better soon.

    I am sure she will be fine. She is under good care with your vet and you and these are very common in puppies too. A good wormer will clear her out pretty fast!

    Worms can become really serious though; most vets will want to worm all puppies (and kittens) twice, about two weeks apart usually as they can carry a very heavy worm load. They get them passed on to them from the mothers. Believe it or not worms are one of the main reasons for puppy and kitten deaths as they can become seriously worm bound when they aren't caught . I never realised this til I started working with people in rescue, who would see a lot of the worst cases and the neglect cases where they eventually get really bad.

    Karlin the vet told me to worm every two weeks with a quarter of a tablet until the symptons are gone.

    My vet is brillant and only charged me for the tablet and the dog got an excellent going over.

    To be honest for her size im surprised at the amount of worms, the cats and dogs all got wormed yesterday.

    She had a great night sleep icon_crssedfingers she is feeling better again
