Digestive care & Coton


Just last week we rescued a 8 month old Coton puppy whose owners could no longer take care of him. When he came to us we were told he was just recovering from stomach upset after eating an earthworm, however back to his routine diet. Yesterday it rained here, & while walking he may have drank some water from puddles& he's had 3 loose motions since morning. We also have a 2 1/2 yr old Puli-poodle-beagle mix at home, who has never shown such symptoms after drinking water from puddles.
Do Cotons have delicate digestive system?

Sensitive stonach
by: Anonymous

I have a,6 year old cotton-poo.
He is adorable but we always had with his delicate stomach.

He vomits and has,a loose poo every couple of days.
Very picky and fussy about food.
We cook chicken legs, pasta , green peas,and carrot for him . Also we feed him sometimes with "fussy appetite cesar Kibble ".
He kalso keeps licking his paws .
We have to take him to the vet very often.

Delicate digestive system-Yes definetly NEW
by: Anonymous

Ou Billy is 7 months and he has most definetly got a delicate tummy!He is on Royal Canin mini junior dry kibble.I have to tempt him to eat by adding a little bit of cooked chicken,turkey or fish.If I add anything new to his food he tends to have loose poos,which is a pain,because I then have to wash him as it tends to stick to his fur.
Even treats I am really careful with,we only tend to give him Pet Munchies,chicken or liver treats.He has a greenies dental stick everyday and he loves it.I also give him a teaspoon of natural yoghurt everyday.
He is really fussy with his food and I am constantly having to rack my brain as to how to entice him to eat his food!
He recently ate somthing in the park and had loose poo,so the vet told me to feed him just rice and chicken/turkey and nothing else for 5 days and then to gradually introduce his dry kibble back.Hes better now and eating the kibble,but will soon turn his nose at that I am sure.
We do love him loads and he is just so funny.

MIne does NEW

Mine has a very delicate one. He can only eat one kind of dog food. Only treats - one brand of biscuit, dehydrated sweet potatoes and 2 blueberries occasionally. He loves rabbit poo (we call it his cocoa puffs) and if I don't catch or he eats anything different than what I mentioned he throws up none stop. When he was 5 months old, we have him a milk bone dog biscuit and had to go to the vet ER because he was none stop vomiting. I have to have him a half of a famotidine antacid every morning or in a couple of days he starts vomiting. My vet said he has too much acid and a very sensitive digestive system. I have heard of cotons that it is difficult to find food for because of that. I don't think they all have it but some do.
