Stringy Poo

Post by Cuniculus on Mon Sep 23, 2013 12:39 pm

Hi All,

My Henry has started with stringy poos yesterday, presuming its overgrooming, so gave him some pineapple juice this morning. He isnt eating his dried food and just picking at veg. Gave him some metacam and plan to give him some emperid when i get home from work, if he hasnt improved. Grandma calls everyday and lets them out in the big garden, so he is moving about, which obviously helps. Checked his stomach and cant feel any blockage, gave him a tummy massage which he loves.
Will take him to vets if he gets worse or doesnt improve by tomorrow tea, but want to give him a chance.
Until then, has anyone got any other tips or advice?

Cheers guys:thumb:

make sure he drinks plenty of water and if he is not eating hay some fiberplex might be a good idea to give him but are you sure it's not spurs even the tiniest can make a bun stop eating have you tried giving him critical care,
if no better I would defo take him to the vet.

I would syringe some lukewarm water.

Is he eating any hay or grass at all? This is what he needs in him to get the tum moving properly. ARe the poos small and hard or are they still a reasonable size?

I agree lukewarm water - it often works wonders.

Would of never of thought of warm water, but it makes sense when u think about it. Thank you really appreciated.

No it's not spurs, I know because he only had a dental 4 weeks ago and he's been eating plenty of hay since.

Since I got home from work I gave him some Romanian lettuce, some raisins and some emprid and he seems to of perked up. His poos seem to be better, they was smaller this morning.

Ill defo do the warm water in the morning now.

Thanks for your help and hugs Hun very much appreciated.

Yes they sure are! I never had the kind of worry I have with buns when I had doggies!

Sending him a nose rub!
