Default Help me! my dog doesn't quit...

shitting! Ever since we adopted this pup he has gotten worse with diarrhea. Some days are ok, but others, he shits in his kennel and i get to come home to a nice stinky house.

Ive switched to Science Diet sensitive stomach formula and that seemed to be working. Then bam, today I come home from lunch and I get another pile of poop soup to clean up.

Finally my vet, via a phone call i made to them, asked If i gave him rawhides. Well yes, i give them to him quite a bit. He eats them in about 10 mins. Usually about 2 or 3 a day.

They said this could definitely be the problem and i seem to be finding the same answers on the net.

Ever heard of raw hides causing gastrointestinal problems?

Yes... it's like eating too much candy... drop down to 0-1 a day for a few days and see if that's the problem... lucky for you it might allow you to go back to normal food... and ZERO people food... ZERO

That's harsh... sorry... dogs are just like having a kid, you don't get to pick their personality/health requirements... try not feeding him anything other then his regular food for at least a few days... let us know what happens...

Our vet said no to them all together. They suggested nylabones as an alternative. Our shephard loves nylabones and they don't make her shit like rawhydes do.

I heard the same thing. My ex wife had the same thing (Except she didn't eat rawhides) so we had to put her down like poor old yeller.

I have a few different versions of the ones you shove treats in and my dog loves all of them... won't touch anything else... not sure how old your dog is but you could give 'em a tums if it's not too young... that's only a temporary solution though....

You can feed him ol roy and he wont shit everywhere if you stop giving so much rawhide...For something to chew on, get a nylabone...The one we got for my akita was red and looked just like this

...a year later, it only has a couple puncture holes in it and she loves it. Throws it around and chews on it for hours. They cost about $16 but will last. Plus your dog wont be shitting rawhide diarrea everywhere when you're gone all day.
