We found a bluetick coonhound just about a month ago. She had been out in the woods a little over a week in a bad snow storm before anyone was able to catch her. We took her to the veet to see if she had been microchipped, and put up flyers/ads, with no luck on finding her owner. The vet said that she is about 9 months old. Lately, her stomach has been growling and squeeking to the point that is sometimes sounds like a cat's meow. She has been wanting to go outside and eat grass when the snow melts but didn't show any other signs of being sick until last night. She had diarrhea and vomiting before she was able to make it outside. She is still playful and her attitude hasn't changed when she is around us or our other dog, but we are becomming concerned. We have been feeding her NutriSource puppy food and though that maybe she might have some sort of sensitivity, so today we made her hamburger (rinsed) with rice, hoping that this will help. Are there any suggestions on what else to do or what may be causing this? I would really appreciate it!View Thread
