Diarrhea from thyroid meds
Soooo Juno has had diarrhea since yesterday (Saturday). I think it's safe to say it's caused by her thyroid meds, which we started Friday night.
I have to buy some canned pumpkin tomorrow anyway since one of my rats is constipated (my pets are never normal lol)... so I figure I may as well give Juno some as well. If I can get them firmed up again with pumpkin, is she just going to end up with diarrhea again when I stop with the pumpkin?
I don't know how common this is and I don't know how long I should let it go on before I decide something is "wrong." I don't know if a bland diet would make sense, if it's caused by medication. Mushy poop from her doesn't normally bother me since she does have a sensitive stomach and is prone to that... but she's been needing to rush outside during the middle of the night, which isn't normal for her. Maybe she just needs to get used to the medication, I don't know...
