CriticalCareVet :

Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

CriticalCareVet :

What is the name of the tablet?

<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"Customer:

I am sorry I do not know, however I can tell you it was a large yellow single tablet

CriticalCareVet :

Drontal may be what you are referring to.

CriticalCareVet :

Diarrhea can be seen with many dewormers - especially as it works and the infection is cleared.

CriticalCareVet :

Often self-limiting - meaning resolving in a few days with supportive care such as a bland diet.

<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"Customer:

Do you agree perhaps dry biscuit and boneo

CriticalCareVet :

That is ok to consider as well.

<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"Customer:

What do you mean by a bland diet, milk perhaps or what else do you suggest?

CriticalCareVet :

Boneless, skinless chicken and white rice

Thank you.
