Dog has diarrhea at night. He seems to be constipated at other times.

**Shelley's Experience:**

My dog has had a chronic giardia infection for about ten years now. My vet thinks the dog was probably infected with the organism in spring one year when she was younger. I did all the "right" things, like giving her a good de-worming every year, lots of water, and a diet rich in fruits and veggies, but in spite of it she got giardia again, I am assuming because she is a large breed dog and she eats a lot.

The dog always had diarrhea, especially in the morning. As I was getting ready to feed her one morning I noticed that she was really upset and crying. I checked on her and I could see there was a piece of toilet paper stuck to her tongue. She was very uncomfortable and trying to get it off. I tried to pick it out but she did not like that. We went out and had some food and she eventually calmed down.

One thing I learned is that the dog will not have bowel movements every single day, but she will get diarrhea every day, at least for a while. In fact, she gets diarrhea once or twice a week. For the first two years that it happened, the dog did not seem to have any discomfort whatsoever and I just fed her a liquid diet so that I could monitor the problem and keep it under control.

I found that she would eat a lot of things like bananas and then within twenty minutes she would get diarrhea and be on the bathroom floor for the next couple of hours. Sometimes it would be a couple of days between. After a few years, I found that I could feed her a lot of fiber in the morning and she would then be fine and go all day without any problem.

**What worked for me:**

We have used Nature's Miracle in our dog's diet. She is not a big fan of it, so I have found that I have to give it to her in the morning and she will have no problem with it.

_Note: Dogs get diarrhea a lot of times and it is not an immediate problem. You might be lucky enough to find a dog that gets diarrhea once every three months or so. This is a really good time to get them on a dietary program._

It took me quite a while to figure this out and to figure out a way to keep it under control. With our dog I thought that the diarrhea was from something that I was giving to her. I did research on diarrhea and what I came up with was that what I fed her was probably the cause of it.

**Dogs with diarrhea should be checked by a veterinarian.**

Canine Allergies and Food Allergies

**DOGS AND PETS** may experience the same allergies, and it can be tough for the pet parent to tell the difference between the two. Dogs with allergies tend to be sneezing and have watery eyes, their ears are often a little itchy and they may have a lot of dander or a little, and the skin around their eyes is often red.

I came to realize that if you take a close look at your dog's nose, and you can see that it is running and that his eyes are watery, then you probably have the same problem with your dog as I had with our puppy. My dog started to sneeze and I would give her an inhaler because she would have a reaction to that.

### **_When to Take Your Dog to the Vet_**

_The best way to figure out what is going on with your dog is to take her to a good veterinarian._

I finally made an appointment and went to see the vet. It didn't take long for me to figure out what was wrong. It was very strange, but the vet didn't have a clue about the allergies. She looked in my dog's ears, but they were clean, and she looked under her skin, and didn't find anything. I looked at my dog's tongue and could see a scab under her tongue. I had no idea what it was, all of a sudden, it dawned on me that the vet had found the cause of my dog's skin problems.

#### **Skin Allergies**

There are many different causes of canine skin allergies. One of the most common is flea allergy. Other factors that can play a part in this condition include:

• _Food allergies_ : Sometimes a dog can eat the same foods that are causing your dog to have allergic reactions. It is important that you talk to your vet about this because it could be possible that you could have this problem as well.

• _Dogs with environmental allergies_ : Many pets with allergic skin problems have environmental allergies. The most common allergen is grass. Grass is particularly irritating to the nasal passages and can cause dogs to sneeze.

#### **Preventing Skin Allergies**

• _Clean your dog's ears regularly_ : This prevents the buildup of gunk in your dog's ears, which, of course, can lead to an uncomfortable experience for both you and your dog.

• _Keep your dog on a regular diet_ : This helps the dog's skin stay healthy and avoids unwanted weight gain.

• _Keep your dog out of grass_ : Grass can make an otherwise healthy dog skin irritable.

• _Keep your dog's environment clean_ : Allergens such as dander, dust mites, and pollen can enter a dog's environment, but it's important to pay attention to these things on your own time and not while you're trying to take care of your dog. This can cause skin irritability and can even be life-threatening for your dog.

#### **Treat It!**

• _If your dog's skin is itchy, it's a good idea to use a topical antihistamine medication on your dog's ears_ : These medications help relieve itching and are safe for your dog. Your vet will give you the best recommendations on this type of medication.

• _If your dog's skin is red or has a rash, your vet may recommend antihistamines, cortisone_ , or _analgesics_ : These medications are considered safe and can be used on your dog. These medications are typically not over-the-counter but are only given by your vet to your dog.

**An Allergies-Inducing Situation**

We had a dog that became very allergic to the cat that lived with her. My sister, who was also caring for our dog, noticed that she seemed to be in pain around her belly and her hind legs. A few days later, my sister also noticed that her coat seemed to be a little rough, as if she was a little itchy.

My sister consulted with her vet about these signs, and the vet suggested giving her an antihistamine as a trial. My sister administered the antihistamine to our dog and saw improvement. The vet suggested that she should continue giving the antihistamine and gradually increase the dosage.

**Treating Skin Problems with Medication**

Here is a simple process for treating your dog with the medications mentioned above.

#### **_Skin and Mucous Membrane_**

Clean your dog's skin with damp cotton balls, which will help you remove any dirt that has been absorbed into the skin. Clean your dog's skin and mucous membranes as often as you can, daily if possible, or
