Our dog had diarrhea and blood in the stool and the doctor gave the dog antibiotics and a blood test. The blood test showed that there was inflammation in the liver. After 2 months, we went back to the doctor and the doctor said that the dog has fluid in the stomach and the doctor did not treat the liver when they found the strong inflammation. What do you recommend us do because the dog’s stomach has become bloated as a result of the extra fluid? She also is having yellow urine.
Thank you for your inquiry to Holistic Pet Info. If your dog has fluid in the abdomen and your veterinarian has not addressed the fluid or liver issue, I highly recommend seeking a second opinion. There are several reasons why your dog can have fluid in the abdomen and they are not a positive prognosis. Diarrhea and blood in the stool should also be more seriously addressed beyond basic antibiotics. There may be a connection between the blood in the stool and fluid in the abdomen.
Once you have a better answer as to why there is fluid in the abdomen, you may support the liver with Hepagen-C by Thorne. I think the most important issue to address if the fluid in the abdomen and it is not a diagnosis to wait for. Best of luck.
