Dog Returns from Upper C and won't stop Sh*tting

Hi,

Wondering if anyone can help me out with some advise with bringing my dog up to the river. She loves rafting and going up to the mellow upper C but after returning home she typically has the runs for a about a week or so.

I try to give her water that I bring but she neglects it and just drinks from the river. Has anyone had this same problem and determined a solution?

Thanks,

-Will

How old? When my pup was young and first few years on river she would have upset stomachs but now it doesnt phase her. Maybe they just need to get used to it? I'm no vet but that's how my pup went and she's had plenty of checks and never had parasites or anything.

My dog Lulu is about 7 years old and she has a pretty tough stomach at home, just not the week after pumphouse.

I'm not sure why that is happening but I recommend asking your vet for some Tylosin powder. It's an antibiotic powder that is often prescribed to dogs for chronic diarrhea. It's very bitter so you will need to trick your dog into eating it, but it always worked for my dog on the first dose. I was always amazed how quick it resolved the problem 100%.

Good luck!

My in laws have the same problem when there dog drinks out of the lake of the Ozarks.
That dog LOVES drinking that water, specially from a super soaker, but then gets the runs real good....

Possibly Giardia. Dogs can get it too, and do.

Dogs can get giardia too.

Like the title says, dogs can and often do get giardia.

Take your dog to the vet. They will check it for parasites and other causes of diarrhea and help you treat whatever caused it. I am a vet.

Like has been said talk to your vet. We’ve had success with adding a probiotic to our dogs food about a week prior to launch, through the trip, and a week post.

We have both of our pups vaccinated for leptospirosis. It is a "non-core" vaccine that our vet recommended due to them being on the water all summer.
