Our pup has had three days of loose stool so I rushed a sample over to the vet this morning and they are saying it will take three to four days for the results to come back. It wasn,t quite diareah it had more of a pudding consistency (sorry i know that sounds gross but there is no other way to describe it) but it was almost there so as a precaution I figured I would have it tested. My question is this, they said I could mix in rice with her kibble to help firm things up can I use brown rice? The receptionist said white rice only but I'm thinking white rice really is nothing but starch and the brown rice is the better carb does it really make a difference on whether I mix in white rice over the brown rice which I prefer to try? Any and all advice would be appreciated last night she had to go in the middle of the night which is very uncharacteristic of her so I'm thinking her gut just isn't right. They also said I could give a tablespoon of canned pumpkin is that something that should be given right off the spoon or should that be spaced out throughout the day? Other than the loose stool she is acting completely normal she just to me looks a little skinny but I don't know I may just be over reacting because of the diareah for three days. No new foods were introduced but she did have some apples and some cranberry sticks that I don't feed too often.
