Chronic Dog Diarrhea for a Month and a Half
(Cape Coral, FL, USA)
Angel December 2011
Angel has had chronic diarrhea on and off for a month and a half. More on than off. I gave her Pepto Bismol, which would work for a day but if I stopped giving it to her it would come back.
She is a 7 year old Golden Retriever. We have given her the same dog food her entire life, Pedigree. We have two other Goldens who are not having diarrhea.
My husband was laid off and we cannot afford to take her to a vet. With 3 dogs and more bill than we know what to do with, I can't afford the vet office visit. Every time we would go in the past we couldn't walk out without paying under $300 and that was when everything was ok. When we got her in 2004 we could afford to take care of her but now we can't afford a vet bill.
I love my Angel and want to help her. She acts like she is fine - she's happy and go lucky - but how can she be with chronic diarrhea? I desperately want to help her, I don't want her to suffer.
Thank you for any help you can give.
