Duke (6months) has now had 2 mild bouts of colitis about a month apart.
slight bloody mucus in poo (just a few small spots)
The vet gave him an injection & a weeks supply of tablets each time.
Has anyone else had any experience of colitis.
what did you do ?
he's feed on Autarky natural dog food & he gets no human food,
he's not stressful

Hi Lancelot
If it's only mild and he's well in himself, I wouldn't worry too much. I think most lab puppy owners will have experienced this :roll: labs are terrible scavengers and can often pick up some tasty?! morsel before we know it.
I just give plain boiled rice with a little chicken for a day and that's usually enough to clear it up. If it's worse, it may be worth starving them for a day. If it goes on for more than a few days or they are showing other signs of illness, then that is the point I would take them to the vet.
HTH
regards
Jenny
