My Shiba Inu, had a horrible reaction to a different heart worm pill. For the past two weeks he has had pitiful diarrhea numerous times a day. My vet exchanged his heart worm pills. Sold us ID dog food. Prescribed rx clay and rx biotics. Today out of desperation, I have started him on a white rice, boiled chicken, pumpkin diet. I add two scoops of both the biotics and clay. Any suggestions to help him. Every time, I start to add a tiny bit of his kibble, Innova, back to his diet the diarrhea starts again. He has lost over a pound, and is visibly uncomfortable.

I can only assume two things here without more info on the dog...the dog has been tested for heartworm yearly and then dosed? And some heartworm medicine is a dewormer too...is it possible your dog had worms? I know when my puppy had worms she had bad diarrhea.

My dog had his annual exam right before a NEW heart worm pill was administered to him. He had a heart worm and a fecal test done. Both came back negative. My vet gave us a generic heart worm pill that I gave to my dog. He has had diarrehea for 2 weeks. I have him on a bland diet of boiled chicken, white rice, a small tablespoon of pumpkin, and I add 2 scoops of Rx Biotics and RX Clay two times a day. He is doing well on that, but when I try to get him back on his regular diet of Innova Adult Dry Large Bites Kibble, his stomach reacts and the diarrhea starts all over. I am literally only giving him 10 pieces of kibble in the bland food mixture. How can I get him to eat his regular food again? Incidentally, my vet took back the new heartworm pills and gave us the heartworm pill that doesn't upset my dogs stomach.

Mind me asking the two heartworm medications that are involved? I only ask this because just today my vet gave me a generic form of heartworm, because they do not carry the other anymore. Maybe try to switch to whole different food in a slow process, the dog might have developed an allergy to something in the food..it happens all the time.
