Oh no! I hope she’s able to make it through whatever. Do you have any ideas of what it could possibly be? Like a few likely culprits?

Seems like the doggie diarrhea is running rampant!

My dog had something similar two weeks ago. His white blood count was super high, and we tested it twice at the vet. I was a wreck, but it was food allergies that turned into an infection! And we hadn’t changed his food or anything, so it just sprang up. We take him back for a checkup on Saturday but he is doing much better with the meds they gave him to calm his tummy and antibiotics, plus special i/d food for now. 🙂

A friend of mine had a similar problem with her dog, and it was an attack of pancreatitis. She had to put her dog on a special diet, but her doggie is also okay.

Meanwhile, one of my bridesmaid’s dogs just had the diarrhea but it was a good old fashioned tummy ache that resolved itself.

Fingers and paws crossed for you!

Awh, I hope she’s okay! Reading forums and other “guesses” is the WORST, I’ve decided. Our dog dug a small corn cob out of the trash a few weeks ago and ate the whole thing, so I googled it and every search came up with scary outcomes or people basically saying your dog is doomed. So definitely just listen to your vet and don’t scare yourself with online “guesses!” Diarrhea could mean a lot of things, just as @omgsprinkles was saying.

Keeping you and mama dog in my thoughts! Agree, keep us updated!

When did then symptoms start? I worked for a family who started feeding their dog raw meat after she whelped because it was recommended to them by someone. Not a good idea. A day later she was vomiting and had diarrhea non-stop. Has anything changed in her diet recently?

It’s possibly worms? They’re super common in dogs, and for preggers dogs even more common because the hormones trigger the eggs to get born or something.  

Have you had the puppies dewormed yet?

Again, when ours had the diarhea it was ‘possibly’ due to the worms (which are nothing to worry about, but the diahrea is certainly worrying and needs to get cleared up).  Our vet had us give her pepto bismol (bought from the regular drugstore).  We had to give her 4.1mL 3 times a day (for a 43 pound dog).  Plus the vet had us deworm her (and we ended up having to deworm her probably 4 more times because the puppies had worms too). And from the diarea contaminating her, she got a bladder infection…..so try your best to keep her butt clean if you can.  (We bought a waterless wash spray). 

Good luck!! I totally know how this is the yuckiest thing to deal with ever!

I could be completely wrong but I was told when my dog had something similar to give him rice cooked in chicken broth… can someone confirm or deny this?

It worked for my dog but I know things work different for different breeds…

@firsttimemom  It’s called a bland diet. It’s rice and boiled meat. You boil the meat to get all the fat out of it. Usually either chopped chicken or ground beef. It’s supposed to settle the stomach.
