    Exclamation Stomach Noises - Won't Eat - Jelly Like Stool

    Almost randomly, our French bulldog Winston won't eat.
    He gets LOUD, gurgling stomach noises which is then followed by loose, mucusy, jelly like stool.
    A few hours after he will eat and then gets stinky gas, way more stinkier than he normally has for a Frenchie.

    After consulting three different vets and them chalking it up to irritable bowel syndrome (which I think is a vague and general diagnoses) I'm reaching out to this forum in hopes that this has happened to someone else's Frenchie and they've found a way to solve the problem!

    A few notes:
    - We don't think it's a food allergy because he can go weeks without it happening and it happens before, not after he eats
    - Our poor little buddy has been tested for everything under the sun including pancreatitis, parasites, Adison's dissease, kidney issues, etc...
    - We've tried a hydrolyzed protein prescribed food, sprouted bean powder for digestion, and goat's milk
    - We really can't find a trend or reason why this is happening but we aren't going to give up on helping him feel better


    Any help is incredibly appreciated!

    Has he been tested for parasites? Giardia can cause mucous in stool.

    Thanks for responding,

    Yes, unfortunately that is one of the things we've tested for which came back negative.

    Can go weeks without it happening...


    Can it be caused by something he’s eaten?

    I think it's worth treating for parasites even though he was negative, as tests don't always show infection. ie. treat with fenbendazole 50 mg/kg once daily for 5-10days and if that doesn't work metronidazole 10 mg/kg twice daily for 5-7 days.

    Also, add some probiotics - either commercial ones like Proviable DC, Probiotic Miracle, or Herbsmith Microflora Plus; or natural ones like live sauerkraut from refrigerator section of health food stores, milk kefir, fermented raw goats milk etc.

    Jelly like stool is almost always a sign of parasites... Iím with Honeys owner... treat for them and add a probiotic

    I would agree with treating for parasite Garadia being the biggest thing . Also stop any and all diary products. We had this same issue . Ours was IBS cause by food allergies . For the last year we have feed our pup on insect derived food . Problem solved . If he manages to eat a piece of cheese or bread he gets instant jelly like loose stool
