    My male has a runny tummy! :( is there anything I can give him to settle his stomach? The female is OK and they eat the same food so I am not sure if he has eaten something dodgy on their walk

    Fasting is often a good course of action. Fast for 24 hours.

    I feed rice and poached chicken in small amounts for a day, basically something very plain.

    I feel for you on this one. When Mae had a really upset tummy when she was staying with my parents for the weekend, dad picked her up to clean her and the poor thing couldn't hold it, she was that bad, and let rip right down the front of my dad :x :x . She got it all out of her system and was fine within a few hours though so hopefully yours will be the same and is now feeling better.

    Good luck

    i starve mine for 12 - 24 hrs depending on how bad the runs are, then chicken and rice small portions a few times a day for the next 36 hrs and see how he goes. dont be worried if his poo is quite pale with the chicken and rice its normal. hope this helps

    I can sympathise with that I only lasted 12 hours :lol: Our vet told us to use scrambled egg and rice he also said what others are saying about starve for 24 hrs but its hard going. Good luck not long to go. :))

    I normally starve them for at least 12 hours so that everything that needs to get out does!! I also give them kaolin which helps bung them up a bit and also give them tree barks powder (from dorwest herbs), this really healps there tummy and then give them plain chicken. I then normally give them a bit of yoghurt (natural) with the odd meal as that helps their stomachs. My little girl is prone to gwtting a upset tummy, but my others have cast iron guts!!
