Hello .... And welcome I did not see this thread u lil one is so cute lovely colour 

 Puppies have these lil road bumps Henry my cocker was ill for ages ( seemed that way) when he was a pup mostly caused by the modern dry foods and wet foods if I knew about raw then I would not have wasted all that money on special vet foods and endless bad tums. 
Hope u find the right solution for u... I found rice made Henry worse and swapped to potato. 
Welcome from me

Sorry to hear Chester isn't getting any better. It may be a good thing to change him over to raw as that will be kinder to his tummy. Try not to worry too much, because he will pick this up which could lead to a vicious circle. Smile

Great - what have you actually ordered?? so I can make a suggestion what to give him.  If you can get him a raw chicken wing try him with one as they are often used by people in the dog world to help settle tummy upsets.. they vcertainly help icky bums as they dry up the stools Very Happy

Another bad night, the diarrhea seems to have got worse, just like water. I have called the vet, partial results are back so waiting for a call back to discuss what to do. I have not continued the chicken and rice today. Its just not helping so instead gave him a small portion of scrambled egg, do you think thats ok? This is what I have ordered from Wolftucker: Puppy beef and tripe / Puppy beef / Puppy chicken and tripe / Puppy weaning food / Sustain Lamb. Chicken wings. Any other suggestions? xxx

If it is the chicken puppy weaning food you have got - start off with that and the chicken wings simply because raw chicken is really good for diarrhoea.  Scrambled egg is ok as long as he doesn't have a problem with eggs. Don't you have any white fish you can cook for him (or try him with that raw too)?  When you get him on the wolftucker try not to give him too much with tripe to begin with as tripe can make the stools a little looser.  Lamb is good for dogs and people with food intolerances usually too.

Did you get a chicken wing to be going on with?

let me know what the results are from the vet...I am in work at the mo but will be able to look back on here later xxxx

ps Josh can't tolerate cooked chicken (except in small titbit doses) but is fine with it raw.... this is still the case as I discovered at the weekend when the only thing they would eat was roast chicken breast as I had no wolftucker left Sad

You might like to get some probiotic to add to his food as well - or live yogurt Smile

have you tried the prokolin yet? when our lab had a sensitive tummy the vet put her on royal canin tinned food for sensitive tummies it did the trick, bit expensive but short term was worth it x

Your puppy is lovely, I hope it recovers quickly!

 I love to use Bene-bac Plus Pet Gel in these situations. Works a treat! I hide it in a bit of ham Wink 
Javari had loads of tummy problems when he was a pup, Kiran hardly any.
I think it is because Kiran was raised straight away on meat, Javari had kibble first.

Good news!!

Post by Freckles on Tue Aug 13, 2013 6:25 pm

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have not been on here for a few days, I have been sick myself, I have endometriosis and it causes a lot of pain. Anyway I am so thrilled to tell you all that Chester has really made an improvement. In spite of what the vet said, I decided to take him OFF the chicken and rice and put him onto dry kibble. Within 48 hours he was so much better. Gradually the diarrhoea has gone and he is back to what I can only call normal. Its been a huge relief. The vet has not phoned with any further test results so I can only assume they are not all back yet. My plan now is to start introducing the WolfTucker food gradually, it only arrived today and is frozen, so will start tomorrow. This evening I mixed a spoon of sweet potato with his kibble and he loved it. Hope we have a good night. I feel that because he has been poorly I have not really been strict with training him, at night he is still in my bedroom so I can get up to him and he has been going potty on the puppy pads. During the day he only goes potty outside, good boy. I have been walking him twice a day which he loves, today he did his first poo on a walk, I think he is starting to realise a walk is for potty as well as exercise. Hopefully this weekend we will go to the beach. Anyway thank you all SOOOOO much for your support and advice. I love this little boy so much! My neighbour fell in love with him too and she has got a little Shih Tzu called Bailey who is 12 months old, he is gorgeous. I hope they will become good friends. Actually maybe you can help, Bailey seems to want to hump everything in sight, including Chester, is there any way of discouraging this? xxx

So glad Chester is better. I'm afraid Bailey is a hormonal teenager but often it is done in play as a gesture of dominance. As long as Bailey is not going to be a stud dog it is okay to tell him no but it doesn't hurt anyone and should get less as time goes on.

So glad to hear that Chester has improved, when any dog is ill, you worry yourself silly, but a pup is even more of a worry as they are so tiny. It sounds like training is going really well. It is totally up to you, but I prefer my dog to be upstairs with us, that way if there is a problem, you will soon know, where as if he is downstairs you may not hear him. 

I hope he can become good friends with Bailey, it is lovely when they have a friend they look forward to seeing and can play together. Smile
