    Yeah, with every meal. No change. However I think it’ll be sooner than 3 weeks. As most his wounds/sores have already closed. Swelling is down and they look clean.

    Im so sorry to read all this! What a horrendous experience!

    I pray he’s 100% soon!

    As for loose stools, many of the facebook groups I am in recommend a Slippery Elm Bark supplement as their holy grail for loose stools or diarrhea. I would look into it for proper dosage if the looseness begins to last longer than you’re comfortable with. <3

    My heart hurts for you, I’m so sorry this happened.

    Try this for Diarrhea.
    Use Organic ingredients and filtered water


    Add a Probiotic because the antibiotics also will kill good bacteria which are located in the gut. Which can cause diarrhea. I would also continue Probiotics even after ending antibiotics.
    I’m amazed Vets don’t mention adding them when prescribing antibiotics!
    There are human studies where just one round of antibiotics, that it can take up to 1yr for gut bacteria back to normal.

    I would also give a Probiotic separate from food and meds. 1hr before food or meds. Also 2-3hrs after food or meds.

    Anytime when you can get living good bacteria like in the ones below are much better.

    Or theses below and I would rotate between them
    Raw Goats Milk
    Fermented Cow Kefir

    Fermented Fish Stock

    I still can’t get over him having to go through this because of someone’s either laziness or ineptitude.
    Any kennel worth his weight as a good kennel will have raised rubber mats that will be easier to lay on or if they urinate it drains through so they don’t step in or lay in their urine. The mats are a huge help for avoiding pressure point calluses and those that have them then it helps them lessen the ones that have sores on the pressure points.
    It also prevents any chemical burns from the disinfecting they do in the kennels. Like I said earlier, I have seen kennels hose it out and splash disinfectant on it, all while the dog is in the kennels.

    I was told he’d have a elevated cot that was chew proof. However I don’t think that ever happened.
