My dog is a 9 year old treeing walker coonhound. He is 86 lbs, and was 3 lbs heavier when we got him from the pound. Lately he has had decreasing energy and had diarrhea for the past 2 days. The diarrhea stopped today, but earlier on our walk he ate a bunch of grass. He just threw up, and immediately asked to go outside (his signal for outside is to scratch the door). When we went out, he stayed in the front yard and appeared as if he was trying to find a place to poop. Instead, he just peed, but oddly enough he didnt lift his leg up, he just squatted

NOTE:Due to economical issues, he is 2 months overdue in his heartworm meds. We are buying them this weekend, however.

Thanks in advance
Nick

It sounds like he may have eaten something like bird dropping (which I've seen many dog do) or something else that didn't agree with him. I would withhold food for 24 hours then start him off with a little bit of food to see if he can hold it down and doesn't have any more diarrhea.

Also, do you feed and water your dogs inside or outside?
