OK...WAAAIIIIT A MINUTE!!! I'm blaming a small mix in to her food...BUT...

It just hit me...she's on an antibiotic for her ears!!! Mometamax. Now granted...I didn't think there could be any correlation because it's put INTO her ear...BUT....You think???
calling the vet now...

Lots of side effects possible, including diarrhea.

Thanks Kris!! got a call back..that dr. wants to give her a med for the diarrhea..but never got a direct answer on this antibiotic! I again said...I need to know if this is it...and should I STOP it. I need to figure out the root cause. Told her to please ask this specifically. He does want to give her a med...afraid of her getting dehydrated and depleted...at this point I agree because nothing I'm doing is helping. thoughts?

Well, I think you definitely need to get the diarrhea stopped. Did he say which med? Hopefully, you'll get an answer back quickly on the antibiotic for her ears. It seems that she can be super sensitive to some things. That link says that diarrhea is an infrequent side effect, but that doesn't mean it isn't causing a reaction with her.

Can Cheyenne have any other protein besides Chicken? Maybe she just needs a bit of a break from chicken?

I have used Imodium in the past with no problems, but it is a big no no for MDR1 dogs.

Val, you know what else I found out about Immodium? You can't give it to a pregnant dog as it can pass through to the pups and cause neurological problems. I've stayed away from Immodium every since my vet told me that - it's a scary medication.

Kris I honestly haven't used it in a couple years.

Mary Ann, Trust me when I say that I had ear problems with Lakota. The only thing I found that would keep his ears in decent condition, not great but decent was the Zymox Products. http://www.germanshepherdhome.net/shop/zymox-products/

I used the Zymox Otic with (1.0%)Hydrocortisone, when his ears were red and sore. I would use the Zymox Otic Hydrocortisone Free on a daily basis if I needed. If his ears were in the bad mode (allergies) I would also use the Zymox Ear Cleanser to help get the gunk out. With the cleaner I would drench his ears massage and let him shake, best to do outside I have light colored walls and ceilings and he would get gunk on both.

I have to order that Val!
I think I will have to do a med with her..I'm too scared to let her get depleted/dehydrated at this point. It will probably be that metro...whatever it is...that's what seems to be the med most prescribed in the past.

I've been using these Zymox products for Caleb ever since Val mentioned them elsewhere on the forum. They seem to be doing a good job for him as well. Caleb has problems with his ears off and on as well.
