Loose Stools

Animal: Dog
Breed: Retriever

Pet Symptoms: My 14 year old golden retriever has had loose stools for the past few weeks. I have tried the following – not feeding her for 24 hours which did not work so I took her to the vet who advised me to give her chicken and rice. Sometimes she passes a more formed stool but more often than not her stools are very loose and she is up 2-3 times during the night for a poo. I feed her on burns fish and rice and have always done so. She is not unwell in herself. What else can I do?

Our Advice: I would advise you to collect 3 day faecal sample for examination and if the results are normal bloods to check Sally’s internal organs and ultrasound scan on abdominal cavity.
