Water coming out of dog's bum

My little Chihuahua had just turned 4 months old and was just getting used to his new digs when he started pooping like crazy. We had to take him to the vet and she sd it was an infection from the stool but it could have been from the water. The water we were giving him was only running through the house and was not running in the tub. We cleaned the water out of the tub and it still happened. She did give me some suggestions, like only running the water in the tub, not the kitchen sink, but this was about 1-2 weeks ago.

She sd it was because we should try to keep her from eating so much and we have not been able to help this. He is not a big eater and likes to eat and drink a lot. Any ideas on how to keep him from eating so much water, so he wont get so much?

I think this has been more of a problem in the past month than it was before. We have tried changing his food, but it has not seemed to help. I also read a few articles about drinking water and that water will keep them from eating water. Would you recommend changing his water?

If it's a stomach infection it may require treatment with an anti-biotic that will be a liquid and can be given subcutaneously. I have a cat with a similar issue and this is what helped us (and she is an indoor cat).

As long as the dog is not allergic to any of the antibiotics, it will be safe to administer.

Here are some tips if you decide to try a new diet for the next week:

- Don't add any "treats" to their meals (they will just look for any edible things they see).

- Don't let them have any water for the day and/or night before you feed them.

- Try to keep their eating schedule consistent (same time every day).

- Have a bowl of water in their "dining" area.

If you decide to try the new diet, it's ok to give a dose of the liquid antibiotic a day or two before switching. They'll have to be on the new diet for a week before we know if it's working.

I second what mary sd and second the above. There are also anti-inflammatory meds you can try to give him. Sometimes a good probiotic and some prebiotics are just what a gut needs to get going agn. Good luck!

There are a few reasons why it could be an infection. The first is that your dog is dehydrated. It is a common problem when dogs are young and it can be very severe. You have to get your dog hydrated in order to avoid this. If you keep your dog's water dish always filled and never let him go thirsty, this problem is greatly reduced. The second problem is an undiagnosed intestinal or stomach parasite. Parasites can cause a similar problem to that of an infection and it can be very difficult to diagnose without a fecal exam. Lastly, it could be a food allergy. Allergies can cause diarrhea but also stomach cramps.

With the first two problems, you will see it within the first few days to a week of the problem beginning. It's always good to keep a diary of the symptoms. It will also help when the vet does an exam of your dog to get more information on the problem.

With the last issue, a food allergy can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to show its symptoms. Agn, the best way to see if the food allergy is the problem is to have a diary of your dog's symptoms.

I think the last thing to add is to make sure your dog is getting the recommended amount of water a day. Dogs are usually not getting anywhere near what we are told to give them.

When I took my dog to the vet for the first time, she was only 5 months old and I had a lot of trouble getting a firm diagnosis of what was wrong. My vet ended up doing a fecal exam. The dog did not have any parasites and she was not dehydrated. She had a really bad infection in her gut and was in danger of dying. We started her on antibiotics and she was okay for a while, but the infection was so severe that she needed to be hospitalized. After some bloodwork, we were able to find out that the infection was caused by a bacterial infection and not a parasite. When my dog was diagnosed, I was told to give her water when she was thirsty and make sure she ate a good balanced diet. If you are worried, I would get another vet opinion. I think a fecal exam will be your best bet.

I have a dog with diarrhea too. It's the same one you described, the same age, she's almost 6 months old and she has a lot of diarrhea but the vet sd it is probably because she is dehydrated. I started giving her 2 liters of water every day, she didn't drink that much so i just had to keep her in the water as much as possible, she's still having diarrhea but I think it's getting better, I've noticed she didn't poop for three days. If she didn't eat all day, she's still drinking a lot of water. It doesn't help that I'm very busy these days so I'm a little worried, she seems to be okay right now but I can't be sure until she poop agn. I'm hoping she will poop in a day. I'm going to keep her in the water for a few days more to make sure it's not dehydration.

If you're worried, you might want to get another opinion. Maybe she has a UTI or something else. I really wouldn't worry though until you know for sure.

I've had a similar problem with my dogs, two
