Q:

Our 2-month-old Rottweiler and Doberman crossbreed is having LBM. Is there any cure?

Hey everyone,

I am new to this forum and would like to seek advice regarding my 2-month-old Rottweiler and Doberman crossbreed. Recently, my pup has been having loose bowel movements and I am concerned for his health. He is still active and playful, but I am worried that this could lead to something more serious.

I would like to ask if anyone has had a similar experience and if there is any cure or remedy that I can give to my pup to help his condition. I have been feeding him with high-quality dog food and have not introduced any new treats or food recently.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hello,

I have a Doberman who's had a similar experience before. He had loose bowel movements for several days, and like you, I panicked and was concerned for his health. I took my pup to the vet and they recommended giving him a probiotic supplement.

The probiotic supplement helps to restore the balance of good bacteria in your pup's gut, which can become disrupted when they have loose bowel movements. After a few days of taking the supplement, my pup's bowel movements returned to normal and he was his happy, energetic self again.

But as others have mentioned, it's always best to consult with your vet first as they can give you tailored advice for your pup's condition. Loose bowel movements can be a sign of something more serious, so it's important to be vigilant and seek proper medical attention if necessary.

Good luck with your pup, I hope he feels better soon!

Hi there,

I have a Golden Retriever who had loose bowel movements for a few days after he ate something he shouldn't have. I took him to the vet and they prescribed a medication to help firm up his stool.

The medication helped him feel better within a few days, and his bowel movements returned back to normal. However, it is important to note that medication should only be given under the supervision of a vet.

It is also important to keep a close eye on your pup's bowel movements, especially if the LBM persists for more than a few days. This could be a sign of a more serious underlying condition, and seeking prompt veterinary care is imperative.

I hope this helps, and I wish your pup a speedy recovery!

Hello,

I also have a Rottweiler who had loose bowel movements a few months ago. At first, I thought it was because he had eaten something he wasn't supposed to, but even after a few days of no treats, his bowel movements didn't improve. I took him to the vet, and they prescribed him an antibiotic course to treat a bacterial infection in his stomach.

It's important to note that the cause of your pup's loose bowel movements can vary, and antibiotics may not be suitable for every dog. But if your vet identifies a bacterial infection as the root cause of your pup's condition, then antibiotics may be prescribed to help treat the underlying issue.

Always consult with your vet first before attempting any treatment on your own, as antibiotics can have side effects and should be used with caution.

I hope this helps and that your pup gets better soon!

Hey there,

I have a few dogs of different breeds and sizes, and one of them had loose bowel movements for a while too. Since switching to a different brand of dog food, he hasn't had any issues with his bowel movements. We found that some cheaper dog food brands tend to use lower quality ingredients that can be hard on a dog's digestive system.

This may not be the case for your pup, but it might be worth considering switching to a higher quality dog food brand, especially if you suspect that your pup is having an allergic reaction to something in their food.

Again, it's best to consult with your vet first to rule out any possible medical issues before making any changes to your pup's diet. But if food is the issue, switching to a higher quality dog food brand can make a significant difference.

I hope this helps and that your pup's bowel movements return to normal soon!

Hey there,

I had a similar experience with my Rottweiler when he was around the same age as your pup. At first, I thought he may have eaten something he wasn't supposed to, but even after a few days, his loose bowel movements persisted.

After consulting with our vet, he recommended a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice for a few days. This seemed to do the trick and his bowel movements went back to normal within a week.

However, it's important to note that every dog is different and what worked for my pup may not work for yours. It's best to consult with your vet first before attempting any home remedies as they can give you more tailored advice to your pup's needs.

I hope this helps and that your pup recovers soon!

Hello,

I have a Labrador who had similar issues with loose bowel movements when he was a puppy. I tried different remedies, but what worked for him was adding a small amount of pure canned pumpkin to his food.

The fiber content in the pumpkin helped to firm up his stool and improve his digestive system. However, it is worth noting that pumpkin should be given in moderation as too much of it can also cause diarrhea.

It's always best to consult with your vet first before attempting any remedies as Loose bowel movements can be caused by various things, including food allergies, bacterial infections, and more serious underlying conditions. Your vet will be able to perform a proper diagnosis and determine the best course of action for your pup.

I hope your pup feels better soon!

Hi there,

I also have a Rottweiler and I had a similar experience with him when he was around the same age as your pup. One thing that my vet recommended and worked well for my pup was adding a teaspoon of canned pumpkin to his meals.

The fiber in the pumpkin helps to firm up your pup's stool and it's also a natural remedy that's gentle on your pup's digestive system. I mixed it into his food for a few days and his bowel movements went back to normal shortly after.

However, as the previous user mentioned, it's important to consult with your vet first as they can give you the best advice for your pup's situation. Loose bowel movements can be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, so it's better to be safe than sorry.

I wish you and your pup the best of luck and hope he recovers soon!
