Help coughing and diarrhea
My 4 year old faux-frenchie started with diarrhea a little over a week ago. I fasted him for 24 hours and put him on rice and chicken. Worked. After several days went back on normal food everything was fine but he started a cough, dry, nothing coming up. Went away after a day though so didn't think much of it.
Now yesterday diarrhea started again, this time I noticed small amounts of bright red in some of it, not a lot just a spot here and there. Was gone all day today with work came home to TONS of diarrhea, in little spots, must have been a hundred of them, and several bright red spots. And he was coughing a lot as he was super excited. Calmed him down and he stopped coughing.
Now he has had not change in his energy, eating habits, or drinking. Just the coughing and diarrhea. Which I know is enough that I need to take him in. I guess my question is I liv ein the booneys and its a long long way to a 24 hour clinic. Any thoughts as to what this could be? Hes quietly sitting next to me now, not coughing, trying to get me to play with im but I'm trying to keep him calm.
I appreciate any input at all.
