I agree, if he isn't drinking he might be getting dehydrated. Take him to the vets they will likely put him on an antibiotic to harden up those poos a bit. and if on antibiotics make sure to give him a bit of probiotic youghurt. helps the tummy.

What flavour did you switch from and what did you switch to, some dogs have issues with some meats, so like if you moved from lamb to chicken that could be the culprit.

Definately the vet! They will take his temperature, listen to his heart etc and if nothing untoward give you antibiotics and possibly antiinflamatory and maybe tell you to feed him on chicken and rice for a while. Hopefully nothing serious. xx

It's dehydration you have to watch out for - so try and encourage him to drink if you can. If he doesn't then off to vets.

I would advice putting him on a bland diet for a few days. Don't give him anything for 24 hrs then a diet of white fish ( I found this better than the chicken) and rice is the best I have found and a dollop of pro-biotic yoghurt for upset tummies.

Once he is back to regular poos- you can pop him back onto his food. ( maybe not the lamb one though!)

If you are at all unsure best to go to vets.

Hope he is better soon :)

Please let us know how you get on .. but a trip to the vets would be advised...

It may be the food change or even something he has picked up on a walk and eaten...

Please keep us updated xxxx

Oh Ollie ... I think if in any doubt a trip to the vet is worth it, as a comforted owner is usually a comforted dog or puppy... ok a little less money in your purse but hey it is still worth it...

Oakley came to me at 6 weeks old and was rather poorly ... shall we say loose with blood in his poo, I was so worried but after a trip to the vet, vitamin paste, sensitive dog food he was better and I was comforted and relaxed.. the vet didn’t know exactly what had caused it, but thought he may have picked something up in the garden or even from the breeders... so always best to be safe xxx

Love to Ollie xx
