History of diarrhea
The three year old emaciated pug mongrel (4,7 kg) was presented to me in the practice. His owners explained that the dog had bloody diarrhea with vomiting at the age of 12 weeks. The feces tested positive for Giardia tested and the puppy got some worming treatments. Fecal consistency changed to diarrhea on and off, even after successful giardia treatment. The dog also had severe flatulence. Had to burp frequently. The feces, according to the patient's owner, always stank extremely. The diarrhea came out partly and looked brown and slimy. Unfortunately, the little one liked to clean out garbage cans to eat the leftovers. However, this was quickly stopped – the diarrhea remained. The feces was examined again and again for parasites. The dog developed otherwise without further problems.
In the last year a slight Hypothyroidism (underfunction of the thyroid gland) was found, which was adjusted with medication. After that the male dog had significantly increased tendency to diarrhea. In early 2016, he had eaten a rubber toy pig. During the night he had to go out several times because of diarrhea. His general condition was not clouded. The owners went to the vet anyway. Had the dog checked out. The x-ray did not show a rubber pig. The vet diagnosed an infection. He prescribed antibiotics, during the administration the feces was formed. After discontinuation of the medication diarrhea occurred again.
The vet was changed because the dog was increasingly losing weight. A large blood picture with further blood values was inconspicuous. Liver, kidney and lipase values were in the reference range. Antibiotics were given again as well as a stomach protector. The feces was formed again. Also this treatment did not bring the desired success, so that the veterinarian suspected a feed allergy. Only parsnips were given for six weeks. fed kangaroo meat. Also without success. The diarrhea was persistent. In terms of feeding, a number of high-quality wet food types were tried out. They had also tried barfing, which only made the situation worse. Remarkable was the permanent hunger. He was fed three meals of wet food a day. He ate the contents of a 400 gram can without any problems. Whereas the feeding recommendation for a small dog with ca. six kilograms depending on the feed manufacturer at approx. 250 grams lies.
Medical history Noticeable: he drinks a lot, meticulously licks his bowl and the floor and likes to eat his feces. The owners had given the dog zeolite powder in between. He tolerated it, but an improvement of the constant diarrhea did not occur. In the household there is also a neutered dachshund lady. Due to the constant diarrhea, castration was not performed, yet the male dog is balanced. In terms of behavior, he is a very friendly dog. He likes to cuddle, likes warmth and is low ranking in the pack. Upon examination, I notice nothing except that the dog is emaciated. The individual ribs. The vertebral bodies are visible.
Before I take action, I explain to the owners that I would like to have a fecal sample done to check for parasites, bacteria, fungi, etc. to exclude and to give me an overview of the intestinal flora. I also commute Phosphorus C1000 as a current constitutional remedy from. A day later the owners call me and tell me that some of the gummy pig has now come out. Now he would have also again diarrhea with flatulence. Emergency remedy. The next day the diarrhea is gone. The feces quite firm in consistency. The next day the diarrhea is gone. The feces quite firm in consistency. The flatulence remains. Over the next seven days, parts of the gummy pig keep coming out. Feces alternates between diarrhea, normal consistency and solid consistency, and is often very slimy.
The findings of the fecal sample show an elevated Elastase value, a moderate level of streptococci, a high level of Escherichia coli, and no parasites, no salmonella, no shigella, and a pH of 7. Thereupon I put together the following therapy plan: Symbioflor 2, China D30, Cerivikehl and Pancreas/Meteoreisen ampoules. We do not change the food. He continues to get kangaroo meat three times a day. A consultation two weeks later reveals that no more diarrhea has occurred since he has been receiving the remedies. In addition, he has again a little more energy and from time to time more parts of the rubber pig came out. The feces is occasionally still slimy.
The first hurdle has been overcome, now the dog must gain weight again. I do a calorie calculation for three wet foods. Rate to whole grain cereal as an in-between meal supplement. Two weeks later he has already gained 400 grams. However, he gets diarrhea again from the whole grain cereal, so we will have to experiment a bit here until he tolerates it. Together with banana as a snack it works then without problems. A few months later, the owners visit me for something else, and the little pug mutt bounces into the office happy, chipper, and in great shape.
