Last weekend my dog, Beau, had to be rushed to the vets and put on a drip. He had HGE or haemorrhagic gastroenteritis.
Luckily, he's ok now but it was a pretty horrible thing to go through. If you have a dog which had bloody diarrhoea, take it to the vets straight away! Beau went in as soon as possible when we noticed something was wrong, and then again when it got worse. Luckily, the drip, a course of antibiotics, canikur paste, and some special food for intestinal problems sorted him out and in a couple of days he was back to his old self.
Now I'm trying to work out what's best to feed him on for his sensitive stomach! He loves meat but it's so expensive and a lot of it gives him the runs... not pleasant when you have a dog as hairy as Beau is... and the dried food he just won't eat.
I'm pondering tripe. Nobody should have to ponder tripe.
