sorry this is long but needed to give full context!
I have a 10 month old puppy that started with diarreah 15th July eve and has been either loose or watery since. Sunday 16th July stopped eating. Offered normal food on the 17th July didn’t eat. 18th July ate normally on the evening. Didn’t eat again on the 19th, offered wet food on the 20th and within an hour brought it all back up.
Took to the vets on the 20th given promax and anti sickness injection and give bits of chicken or fish
21st ate chicken - kept it down, Diarreah persists
22nd vomited again in the morning and very lethargic, took back to the vets, extended promax - took bloods (all ok)
22nd sat afternoon and Sunday he seemed to pick up - ate a bit of kibble Sunday morning and had a soft but formed poo.
mon 24th would only eat kibble with wet food in the afternoon
Tuesday 25th watery diarreah and back to not eating anything other than chicken
Wednesday - sleepy / only eating chicken
Thursday (today) sleepy, won’t eat kibble, very small amounts of poo that are clay like from the promax - Temp is 39.08 - it has been 38.2 ish till today!
vet is saying to collect a 3 day fecal sample to test.
He is drinking, mm refill is fine, definitely loosing weight but not really playing and sleeping all day.
this is a puppy who would be jumping round and generally be hard work morning till bed time with so much energy, usually would need a morning walk and a good long walk in the evening plus playtime or he would be bouncing round the house on the evening!
now he gets up, goes to the toilet and lies down and sleeps most of the day, he will walk but tires quickly, same with playing - tires very quickly
I feel like the vet thinks there’s nothing wrong as clinically apart from Diarreah he is ok, thinks a bug that will pass but I’m not convinced?
