Sickness and diarrhea in a springer puppy after a trip to the park
Our new 3 month old puppy,Chester, has just had a bout of sickness first followed by severe diarrhea. We took him to the vet and he diagnosed "
garbage sickness" which he said is common in Springers as they will eat anything. We said that we had been taking him to Richmond Park in Surrey,UK and he said that he thought that he might be ingesting deer or geese faeces and that can make them very ill.
Someone else also told me that Springers are renowned for having easily upset stomachs.
Does anyone know if this is true and how we can avoid this happening again.

Springers are notorious for getting upset tummies but here is my Upset Tummy Guide that gives you advice as to what to feed them if this happens.
