Inflammatory Bowel Disease
My 9 1/2 year old pit bull seems to have a very upset stomach. It started so suddenly. She started panting and having hard stomach contractions like she was trying to poop but was having trouble. That was about an hour ago. She has since vomited once and had two bowel movements. Both were diarrhea. She’s drinking water now like she can’t get enough but is still acting pretty weak. What could be the problem?
We have a 9 year old small terrier mix. She a has had vomiting, and mucus diarrhea. This has been going on for three days. Her nose is cool and moist and she’s not lethargic.
My morkie is 5 1/2 yrs old n has had a runny stool for 3 days. She still seems like she has a appetite n wanting to play, no other symptoms outside of shes pooping all over the house…
