Question DetailsAsked on 5/17/2012

what is the best way to stop diarreaha in an older dog on meds for cushings disease?

I have adopted a wheatlan terrier and found out he has cushings disease and he is aobut 10 years old. He takes his meds fine - once -daily but one side effect is he has constant diarrehea when he goes out. Is there something I should be doing to help counteract this?

From a nonprofessional.

My brothers dog had a simmilar problem.

He was told by his vet to bring a sample of his stool if possible (not possible but didn't notice worms). He was given medication, (like expending fiber?) along with an anitviral. The problem was resolved in a few days. Good luck.

You can get an OTC anti diarrhea med with Kaolin (clay) and pectin in it, at local pet supply chains. Since the clay can absorb meds and food, give it staggered two hours before or after meds or food. It physically binds up the stool. Metamucil fiber is also safe for dogs, but it may taste bad to them. Maybe offer it in the biscuit form - perhaps the dog will eat it as a treat.

Kaotpectate, or if you live near a Tractor Supply store, you can get dog diahrrea medicine that is basically kaopectate but with a syringe so it's easier to give.
