    Default Labrador with a bad case of diarrhea

    My dog Twist is a retired FT dog and for the past 2-3 days she has been pooping liquid stools. I am concerned and not sure what is going on. I have collected samples and we see the vet tomorrow

    She is 10 but acts like an puppy. However, this is something that causes both me and her distress.

    Thoughts?

    Please help.

    Weather changes bring some of this on.. I would give her a double Metrodiaxal SP for two days and see how she does.
    There is something about the outside of a dog which makes the inside of man feel good

    Think I would go to the vet like you planned.

    I agree...Worst case is a bloody diarrhea and that requires immediate attention.

    Agreed. That severe you need to know what you are dealing with before you start trying treatments.

    Just go to the vet as you are planning and get a good senior check-up with blood work. With her age, you don't want to do a quick fix until you know what could be causing it.

    Mix some canned pumpkin in her food, might help in the meantime.

    while I would still take her to the vet, microwave a sweet potatoe for her. use half at each meal.

    Make sure it is pure pumpkin not the pie filling.
