I started my German Shepherd (110 lbs) on Derma-IonX and now he has loose bowels. We are going to start him on hamburger and rice today. How long will the loose bowels last? -Richard-

Dear Richard,

I would cut him back to 1 drop twice daily and increase by 1 drop each day until you get back to 1/2 dose twice daily. If the diarrhea gets better and then gets worse drop back to the lower dose.

Are you giving probiotics and the other supplements we suggest? The gut flora is readjusting to the new substances and when it finds the new balance the stools will be formed. Probiotics usually helps this along more quickly. The other things you would reduce.

Please keep us updated. Thank you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
