My dog had diarrhea for a few days. I gave him children's kaopectate (5cc 2xD) and put him on a diet of rice and ground beef. (Three parts rice to one of ground beef) His stools are starting to form. He is not acting sick in anyway. (no vomiting or lethargy)My other dog is fine that eats and sleeps with him. He has just been weaned off of steroids for an allergic reation. My two questions are this: How long should I keep him on this diet without fear of constipation, and could withdrawl from steroids have caused this problem? He is a 16 month old male shepard mix. Thank you.
I do not think it had anything to do with the steroids and continue the diet for 3 days. vetcare
