Since then he has had diareah off and on, last couple of month has been chronic. He has been on antibiotics again currently and on a med for diareah but it does not work. Nothing seems to work we have had stool sample checked blood work done exrays dont know what else to do, any suggestions?
Chronic Diareah, Using Medicine To Cure And Love For a Longer Life.

I do have a suggestion for your Pom’s problem. I have had six small dogs and three Persian cats and one ginger cat. I have acquired quite a lot of knowledge in caring for these animals during the years they were part of my household. I have had seven children and since my animals were like children to me with their dependence for their well-being, they were treated as an extension to my natural children. My Shitzu had suddenly developed diarrhea which was as bad a problem as when my children ever had this. His diagnosis at the veterinary was diagnosed as a liver problem. There was not much that could be done for him, except to cut back on his treats of human food and only have good quality dog treats. He was also given a very low dose of vitamin E ( I think it was 30). The drugstore had to special order this for me. He was diagnosed at seven years old and went way beyond my vet’s expectation of his life span. He passed away at thirteen years of age.
I contribute this also to the excellent care that I gave him as I did my children going so far as rocking him and singing to him until storms passed as that was the only thing that truly frightened him. He was rocked nearly every night for an hour or so and it is very difficult to knit with a dog on your knees.
I believe that lots of love bestowed on an animal ensures it that you care about him as his mother did and they are very intuitive to this. Anyone who can get stress out of their life will be a better functioning person and it does relieve a lot of aches and pain. All in all Lucky lived two years beyond the vet’s expectations.
There are many similarities between humans and animals. We have many of the same diseases. Your animal needs as much attention as a child for discipline and love. We, as humans are evolving all the time,(getting more intelligent and stronger). Animal lovers should take a second look at their animals and see how far advanced they are since about forty years ago. They are extremely intelligent and if you will take time to pay attention to them you will see this difference. Remember, we needed teachers at school to train us for reading and writing etc…Lucky’s intelligence was comparable to a three year old.
I sincerely hope that this information will be of some help to you, please do not forget the attention and love, after all they are babies in a fur coat.
