hi,I have a two year old male who had very smelly diarrhoea for a couple of days , he lost weight and though the diarrhoea stopped he continued to have non formed stools which were smelly☹
He’s eating drinking ok and not in any pain the vets have given him food to firm him up and antibiotics.
His poop is still unformed and he hasn’t increased his weight.( his friend who came in contact with him started displaying the same symptoms )
The next vet trip he was given some special food to help with gut bacteria and though one’s poop formed it’s now back to soft
My vets are not exotic vets and say they can’t have yeast infection as it can’t live in the tummy. I have no exotic vet that I can get too. And I’m wondering what I can do to get them both better ?
Any ideas please

Finding a different vet would be the best option.

In the meantime you need to take them off vegetables and grass. Feed them a diet of hay and pellets only until they're fully better. If their poop output is really bad I'd cut out the pellets too.

It can take a number of days on the gut motility drugs before they are better. So, continue with it if you have some, and if not ask the vet for some for home.

Do you have any probiotic? The best to use is Fibreplex but any for small furries is fine.

What is the "special food"? Is it Critical Care?
