Your Questions About Fox 4 News

Helen asks…

So when are we going to get the war criminal piece of Texas pondscum on trial in the United States of America?

Before you uninformed maggot brained Fox news groupies say “Never” you must not be aware that George Bush’s world wide travel destinations are becoming more limited by the day, even Spain has now mentioned declaring Bush a war criminal. Another thing I want to know is, how many times has Bush dared to leave his rabidly gun loving state of Texas within the USA?
Since leaving the Whitehouse?

Hcg Diet answers:

Cons are always taking about President Obama should be impeach but Bush is the one that should have been impeach. He killed over 4,000 solider for nothing and Katrina. Violating U.S. And international law by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red Cross. Etc. Etc. He’s the worst president ever! I hope sooner than later. There are a lot of country that said if Bush ever set his foot on their soul. They will arrest and trail him. @~

Donald asks…

Have you ever watched Fox News at the exact same time you’re browsing the politics section?

….and noticed that, whatever talking point is on Fox News, in about 4 minutes, a half dozen conservatives parrot the same talking point on this site?

Hcg Diet answers:

No, you ever watch NBC, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CBS, well it’s no need, they are all the same, if you watch one, you are watching all of them, they all get their talking points from the DNC and/or Communist party and/or the White House*********************************************************************************************************************************************************

Mandy asks…

Why is it that Fox news is able to hold it’s own against all other liberal news outlets?

I mean they are out gunned 4 or 5 to 1, and this election is in a dead heat in the closing days. Is Obama that hard to sell to the public or are these liberal news organizations just not up to speed with Fox?

Hcg Diet answers:

Fox News is reality.

Mainstream Media is Liberal BS that people can see right through.

Really not hard to understand why people like Fox News.

Carol asks…

Obama is spending 4 trillion dollars on new slippers in India?

I heard it on Fox News, so it has to be true. Conservatives are you outraged yet?

Hcg Diet answers:

I think you heard wrong, or are just attempting to, once again, inject lies.

There, I answered your question.

Your Questions About Has Anyone Died In Space

Laura asks…

Has anyone ever died in outer space?

Of the peopl who traveled into outer space, has anyone actually died while in outer space, if so who, when?

Hcg Diet answers:

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_burial

The list of space disasters shows that four cosmonauts and 15 astronauts have perished in flight as of 2006.

Soviet Air Force Colonel Vladimir Mikhailovich Komarov crash-landed following a parachute failure aboard his Soyuz 1 spacecraft on April 24, 1967.
U.S. Air Force test pilot Major Michael J. Adams was killed November 15, 1967 when his X-15-3 research aircraft began to spin on re-entry and descent and disintegrated near Randsburg, California. Maj. Adams was posthumously awarded astronaut wings for his last flight in the X-15-3, which had attained an altitude of 266,000 feet (81.1 km).
The three crew members of Soyuz 11, Georgi Dobrovolski, Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov, were discovered dead after a successful landing following a nearly 24-day mission in earth orbit aboard the Salyut 1 space station. The cosmonaut’s death were attributed to asphyxia, caused by a rapid decompression mishap during re-entry on June 30, 1971.
The seven bodies of Greg Jarvis, Christa McAuliffe, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Michael J. Smith, and Dick Scobee were recovered in the mostly intact cockpit after the destruction of the Space Shuttle Challenger of January 28, 1986.
The seven-member crew of Rick D. Husband, William McCool, Michael P. Anderson, David M. Brown, Kalpana Chawla, Laurel B. Clark, and Ilan Ramon were killed in the re-entry disintegration of the Space Shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003.
Thus no remains of these victims are or have been in space.

George asks…

has anyone died in space?

Hcg Diet answers:

In-flight accidents have killed 19 astronauts:
- 1 American astronaut died in 1967 while piloting a suborbital spaceflight in a rocket plane
- 3 Russian cosmonauts (the crew of Soyuz 11) were killed in 1971 in the vacuum of space after undocking from space station Salyut 1
- the rest died during re-entry or during launch

And training accidents have killed 11 astronauts (all on the ground or in the atmosphere) and launchpad accidents have killed 71 ground personnel.

Richard asks…

has anyone died in outer space?

Hcg Diet answers:

Soyuz 11 is the closest anyone has come to dying in outer space. Three cosmonauts died in the upper atmosphere during re-entry, due to a faulty valve. They were above the official boundary of space (100 km altitude).

Michael asks…

has anyone ever died in space?

i mean actually in space, not aboard a shuttle on the ground or reentering the atmosphere. if so, who and what happened to them.

Hcg Diet answers:

The answer to this question as stated is “No”.
Randy is partly right in his reference to an EVA. The person concerned was Alexei Leonov on the very first EVA, which took place on March 18, 1965. The EVA’s carried out by American astronauts involved depressurising the spacecraft cabin and opening the hatch. However on the USSR’s Voskhod craft, an airlock was inflated on the outside of the hatch and Leonov crawled into it, closing the hatch behind him. The airlock was then depressurised and the outer hatch opened.
The official Soviet report simply stated that Leonov spent 20 minutes outside the spacecraft, but this only told half the story, for in fact he spent about 10 minutes carrying out EVA activities and the rest of the time trying to get back in. His spacesuit had ballooned in the vacuum of space to the extent that he couldn’t get back into the airlock. After some effort he decided the only thing to do was to reduce the pressure in his spacesuit to make it smaller. This was incredibly risky as, unlike the pure oxygen used in the US spacesuits, his used a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen, so lowering the pressure meant that nitrogen bubbles could have developed in his bloodstream, resulting in him suffering from “the bends”.
Fortunately all was well and Leonov was able to get back into the airlock and the Voskhod.
Some years later another cosmonaut did actually drift away from his craft whilst untethered, but fortunately he was caught by a colleague before going too far!
In April 1970 the safe return of the crew of Apollo 13 was ensured by the incredible work of the teams on the ground who came up with the necessary procedures that enabled the astronauts to get back to Earth.
On June 6, 1971, Soyuz 11 was launched to dock with the Salyut 1 space station. The crew consisted of Georgi Dobrovolski, Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov.
After 22 days on board the station, the crew returned to their Soyuz craft, undocked and returned to Earth. However when the hatch was opened after landing, the crew was found to be dead. It appeared that a valve had been jolted open when the Soyuz descent module separated from its orbital module. The valve was supposed to open in the final stages of landing, in order to equalise air pressure inside the cabin, but by opening far too early it had resulted in the loss of the cabin’s air, causing the crew to die from asphyxiation. This meant that the crew actually died in space, at an altitude of about 105 miles. However this was as part of their re-entry procedure, which your question precludes.

Your Questions About What Happens If You Take 2 Allegra In One Day

John asks…

If somebody helps me with this she/he is a “life saver”. I have a strange kind of-hay fever .?

The process starts at 3 or 4 AM: Roof of my mouth gets so itchy and irritated that it wakes me up. After 5-10 minutes my nose glands get irritated because of scratching the throat my nose starts watering and gets itchy-Sneezing starts and my eyes start watering. The torture ends at 7-8 AM. I finish almost a whole pack of tissue every time this happens. I get the attacks at least 3 nights a week. I have seen allergy specialists, my primary care has even made me do an abdominal ultrasound to see if it is because of my stomach since it happens mostly at nights but nothing came out of any tests results.I take Zyertec every night before going to bed (have already tried claritine, Clarinex, Allegra pills as well as Beconase and Rhinacort nose spray). either. Have changed the sheets, pillows and blanket (got rid of anything with feather)-cleaned the bedroom as often as I could….NOTHING worked. We even moved from a neighborhood to another and things are still the same. Any ideas?
Does any body know a VERY GOOD Allergy specialist in Boston area?

Hcg Diet answers:

Hi, I also have allergies and they have not helped me with any allergy medication. The one thing that helped and i would have never thought of is Zantac 2 times day. This works by stopping the histamine from releasing in the gastric area. It actually works but does not completely cure all. You will have triggers and need other meds to help with them but Zantac will not hurt you to try it and see if it helps. Any relief is better than none. Good luck to you. I can’t help with a Dr in the Boston area since i don’t live anywhere near there.

Ken asks…

Off and On Headache Always In The same Spot?

I have add this for almost a year now. Before it was really nothing, it would only happen once in a rare while, but for the last six months it has been getting worse. Especially the last week.

The episodes last for about 15 minutes to an hour, and the pain is always in the same exact spot, on the left side, back/top of my head. The pain radius is about the size of a quarter to a half dollar. They haven’t been excruciatingly painful, , on a scale from 1-10 the worst has been a 4. and the only real side symptom is extreme tiredness with the more painful headaches.

Used to I would get about 1-2 a day, this past week there has been anywhere from 3-5. I’m really worried that there is something life-threatening going on. I am going to a doctor who saw me before for this (And assured me it was not a tumor, but did no testing) again in the next few days. But anything that might help quiet my fears would be incredible, thank you for any insight,
P.S. I had thought sinus at first, but since it’s in the back left part of my head, I don’t think sinus can get there? I’m not sure though,

Hcg Diet answers:

Hey there,

I am not a medical expert for sure. But, I feel like I am a headache expert because I suffer from allergies and I get frequent headaches all the time.

I have tried everything…. YOu name it I have had it. I have been to specialist, I have been to their specialist and i get more scripts- nose sprays- zyrtec, tylenol, allegra, singulair, blah blah, blah.

The thing that has helped me the most is that container you can buy at the drug store that looks like a tea pot. You put warm water in it with a package (that comes in the box, its really just salt, so you can save money and just put a small amount of salt in it and mix it up.

The scary part is this. You have to lean your head over and put this tea pot llooking thing in your nose. (I thought I would drown myself, but I didnt; ha ha) You have your mouth open. The longer it takes for the water to move from one side to the other is proof that you have sinus blockage.

You do both nostrils and within minutes you will realize that you no longer have a headache. Be brave and strong. You can do it.

After you are done have tissues ready because you will have to blow your nose like crazy and you will feel so much better.

Robert asks…

What are some good girl and boy names?

Ok, this is for a story I was inspired to write. I need names for the leading male and female characters, but I’m not too sure what to use.
For the boy, I was thinking somewhere along the lines of these:
Noah
William
Felix
Connor
Isaac
Clyde
but I would like more of a variety to choose from, plus middle names if anyone would feel like listing them.
This character is a friendly, well known 18 year old who is very artistic and passionate about life. He’s quite, not exactly in a shy way but more as in reserved and not too energetic or loud. He stands up for his beliefs and others, yet will avoid fights as much as possible. He’s an intelligente student.
Appearance: From what I’ve drawn out so far, He’s fairly tall (6′2“) and lean, but he has a firmly built body that isn’t too buff but you know, it’s just enough to define his musculine outline. (hope that made sense haha). His hair is a wavy, whisky mess of dark brown waves and curls, not exactly curly-Q but not exactly straight either. His eyes are a light shade of green and he does have facial hair around his chin. Not fully grown but still it’s there…

As for the girl, well, I have only a few names picked out but I would definitly love for more:
Allete
Kallea
Raine
Arra
Abigail
Allie (I’d really like a middle name for this one)
but that’s all I’ve come up with, so I’d really love more with middle names too if you could.

This is for the main girl character. She’s very resereved and quiet to the point she rarely speaks. She’s dull and plain, with very little interest and motivation in almost everything. She enjoys the rain and watching things change: like the weather, people and their expressions, animals and plants, time (she could literally sit all day and watch the sun move across the sky or the stars twinkle in the sky) Yea, she’s a little weird. She’s really intelligent and unlike the male character who happens to be the idealist, she’s a flat out realist. Everything has meaning, if it doesn’t, then it simply doesn’t exist to her.

The female character is of average height for a 17-18 year old girl, between 5’4 and 5’6. Her hair is a very dark shade of brown, it almost passes for black. Her eyes are dark brown with a natural glossy shine to them. She’s not exactly curvy but not exactly plain, her body is right in the middle. A little curve to her sides to define her as a young women, she has an average size for bust and she’s simply not too pretty but not too ugly. Like I said, right smack dab in the middle.

I’d really appreciate help naming these two characters, throw in last names if you‘d like because I haven’t really picked any out. I’m mainly focusing on first nams and middle names, and I’ve alraedy checked out babyname sites so please don’t leave a link for one of those. Thank you!
After checking on some of the answers, I think I’m liking the sound of Felix. I kind of see it as a middle name, and if that were the case then everyone in the story would call him by his middle name rather than his first name, so in your opinion, what would be a good first name to put the middle name Felix with?
*Note: this is just a thought, I’m perfectly fine with keeping it as a first name. I love all the answers so far so thank you for helping me out (:

Hcg Diet answers:

For the boy, I like Felix. How about Felix Christopher.

If not that then these:
-First Names: Lief, Micha, Quentin, Sebastian, Vince

-Middle Names: Anthony, Jay, Benjamin, Robert

-Options: Lief Anthony, Quentin Jay, Sebastian Robert, Micha Benjamin

-Last Names (if you need them): St. Laurent, Prescott, Butler, Lovett

-Options with Last Names: Sebastion St. Laurent, Lief Prescott, Quentin Lovett, Felix Prescott

For the girl, it could be Allie Jay, or I also like Allie Jack. A guy’s name sounds good with it.

If not then these:
-First Names: Allegra, Cassidy, Maya, Raina

-Middle Names: Ann, Nicole, Jo, Elise

-Options: Allegra Nicole, Maya Ann, Cassidy Jo, Raina Elise

-Last Names (if you need them): St. Laurent, Butler, Prescott, Lovett

-Options with Last Names: Allegra Butler, Maya Prescott, Raina St. Laurent, Cassidy Lovett, Allie Prescott.

Hope that helps!

Jenny asks…

Please Help with strep???

i have allergies, like ithcy throat and stuff, for about a month and a half
and i was wondering what medicines would help, because i’ve tried benadrly allergy,clairitin, and nose spray. But also i was wondering can allergies also cause a itchy toungue?

2 weeks ago
im pretty sure it isn’t a food allergy, because i haven’t been eating anything different.

p.s the itchy tongue doesn’t usually happen.
and i was out of town in Sacramento so maybe i was allergic to something like trees, because their were alot of those blossom trees around.
I went to my doctor, and my doctor gave me with Allegra, and Nasacort, but soon after my throat got sore, and I got white spots on my tonsils so I went to the doctor again, and she said I might have strep, and gave me this 5 day strong medicine that actually lasts 10 days. I finished the 5 pills. My throat is very sore, like when I swallow or talk it feels like a burning kind of feeling. She said I might be a strep carrier, and im getting a blood test on the 2nd to find out.
I don’t know whats wrong with me.
I still also have those white patches on my throat.
and I cant even breathe through my nosee or mouth that well.
What could be wrong with me, and has anyone experienced this?
Oh I stopped using the nasacort btw…since i didn’t feel like it helped me at all.

Hcg Diet answers:

Strep is a bacterial infection. The dr. Should have tested you for it. If you do have it then antibiotics are needed. If you do NOT have it you may have a viral infection like mono which does not require antibiotics unless you have strep at the same time.

Your Questions About Can I Drink Coffee With Adderall

Sandra asks…

Is this safe to do with adderall?

well its perscribed to me and somedays i take the normal doseage and other days i skip it and then sometimes i take double the ammount it says to take. Im not sure becuase i mix the double ammount with a Load of Caffine like Monsters, Rockstars, 5 hour energy, and many other energy drinks, coffee, and caffiene pills. I like the feeling i get from double dosing on the adderall and caffiene becaise of the floating feeling i get and the exsessive energy and dissiness. Am i doing any kind of damage to my body? should i quit doing this? can this be dangerous?

Hcg Diet answers:

Stimulants such as amphetamine (brand name ‘Adderall’) and caffeine contribute to high blood pressure and eventually heart disease with chronic use. While doubling a prescription dosage of amphetamine does not put significant strain on a youth’s heart, combining multiple stimulants such as amphetamine and caffeine is significantly more dangerous.

The only person who can determine whether the risks are worth it is you. Dizziness is a good indication that you’re pushing your limit. That ‘floaty’ feeling on the other hand is what is known as a ‘buzz’. It may surprise you to hear that Adderall (amphetamine) is just one carbon atom away from crystal meth (methamphetamine).

Joseph asks…

I stupidly took 2sudafed & 3ibuprofen an hour ago. I then took 10mg of adderall w/out thinking. Will I be ok?

I‘m really sick and I took the sudafed and ibuprofen before I went to sleep and I was really drowsy so I wasn’t thinking. But I have a ton of work to do and, though I know it’s highly addictive, I‘ve been using adderall lately to deal with my workload (I‘m a second semester senior with a million different commitments – today I have to contact all schools I applied to to inquire as to whether it would be a problem if I dropped one of my AP courses for the semester AND I have to manage my school newspaper from home because we have press starting tomorrow and our next issue comes out wednesday of next week).

Basically, I took the adderall without thinking when I woke up. I knew it’s fine with the motrin but then I remembered taking the sudafed. I should have thought about it beforehand considering I have a doctor for a father and a former nurse for a mother but obviously I was a little more work-oriented at the time.

I really am unsure whether I should contact someone to get help or not. I feel ok right now, a little shaky but I think that’s because I‘m always a little jittery after I take adderall. I took the adderall about 20 minutes ago now and the sudafed/ibuprofen about an hour and a half ago.

Should I call an ambulance? I really can‘t deal with a biscrew upup right now. If I go to the hospital it could fuck up a lot of things for me. Sad social commentary really, high school students / people across the U.S. really find that their work supersedes their well beingng. But truly, if I can avoid any emergency medical attention it would be great. Ugh. I feel like I‘m in a Hunter S. Thompson novel right now. This is such a morbid and possibly life-threatening situation and I‘m more concerned with my day-to-day work. FML.

I tried inducing myself to vomit but I don’t have anything in my stomach and I wasn’t ablethrow upowup, I just dry heaved. Sorry if that’s too much information but I really don’t know if that’s necessary information or not given the extremity of my situation.

I also have been drinking coffee, I don’t know if caffeine is going to screw things up as well or not… I am truly an idiot.

Hcg Diet answers:

Call your father or mother! If you are having heart palpitations or feel light headed, do not drive! If all else fails, call your local hospital and ask to speak to a doctor, then take his advise.

Daniel asks…

Chemically, what is the difference between guarana and caffeine?

Caffeine does not keep me awake as far as I can tell. I can drink coke, coffee, etc. before bed with no effect. I can even take prescription stimulants close to bedtime with no effect (Adderall, specifically). However, a guarana drink kept me awake all night last night. I wonder if guarana is different chemically than caffeine. Or maybe the guarana just kept me awake because the dosage was stronger?

Are they different from a chemical standpoint?

Hcg Diet answers:

According to the Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank, when guaranine is defined as only the caffeine chemical in guarana, it is identical to the caffeine chemical derived from other sources, for example coffee, tea, and mate. Guaranine, theine, and mateine are all synonyms for caffeine when the definitions of those words include none of the properties and chemicals of their host plants except the chemical caffeine.[8] Natural sources of caffeine contain widely varying mixtures of xanthine alkaloids other than caffeine, including the cardiac stimulants theophylline and theobromine and other substances such as polyphenols which can form insoluble complexes with caffeine.

I think generally drinks that have guarana also have higher amounts of caffiene. So that might be why you stayed awake.

Lisa asks…

Do I have ADD or ADHD?

I know I need a doctor’s diagnosis, but I just want to find out if I‘m delusional or not. I‘m not hyper at all. I am never disruptive or a distraction in school, but I constantly space out or daydream. My legs always shake along with my hands. Even when I drink coffee or red bull I‘m completely fine. I can literally go to bed right after drinking a red bull. I tried adderall before from a friend. I was able to focus more and stuff, but I fell asleep easily after taking them. Am I imagining this ADD?

Hcg Diet answers:

Here’s some things for you to look for, and btw, ADD and ADHD are basically the same thing, but ADHD just adds the hyperactivity to the situation.

Http://www.webmd.com/add-adhd/guide/adhd-symptoms

difficulty paying attention to details and tendency to make careless mistakes in school or other activities; producing work that is often messy and careless
easily distracted by irrelevant stimuli and frequently interrupting ongoing tasks to attend to trivial noises or events that are usually ignored by others
inability to sustain attention on tasks or activities
difficulty finishing schoolwork or paperwork or performing tasks that require concentration
frequent shifts from one uncompleted activity to another
procrastination
disorganized work habits
forgetfulness in daily activities (for example, missing appointments, forgetting to bring lunch)
failure to complete tasks such as homework or chores
frequent shifts in conversation, not listening to others, not keeping one’s mind on conversations, and not following details or rules of activities in social situations

And it’s really bad to take someones addy’s even if you think they will help. They are quite addictive and if you don’t have ADD they can speed you up or slow you down to a point of being almost unfunctionable. If you’re truly worried, talk to a counselor, or go to a free clinic and talk to a doctor who can point you in the right direction. They wont laugh or make fun as long as you’re serious. Just simply explain that you’re spacing out and you have a severe inability to stay focused on anything. As for going to bed after drinking caffeine, caffeine can take 30minutes to an hour or more to kick in. If you drink it when you are just getting sleepy, chaces are youre going to fall asleep before it had a chance to block any thing. See… Sleep is chemically induced and caffeine blocks these chemicals. Once they are released, caffeine can only block more from happening, not the already released chemical. So you’re now sleepy with a high dose of caffeine, and you go to bed… Your body processes the caffeine in your sleep and your tolerance level has built up…. Caffein is bad when you’re sleepy. Try drinking it an hour sooner or two hours sooner than you think you’ll fall asleep from now on. Or cut it out of your diet for a week or two and have ibuprofen on hand because your head will hurt…

But back to the ADD…. I dont know if you really have it. A lot of people will shake and twitch out of habit. It’s actually got a name… It can be a muscular thing where youre tired (eat bananas and drink milk for this) or it can be a hyperactive thing that your body does which actually helps burn calories or it may be nervousness… But ADHD people dont usually have these… Sounds more like caffeine again.

–Try NO CAFFINE for a week. Take 200 mg ibuprofen when you wake up cause your head is going to be in serious pain, and then 200 mg more in about 6 hours, then one more time a little before bed. Then the next day take 2 doses. You should be good by day 3. Dont take it at all if you can stand the headaches that will come. Then see if your shakes, foot movements, and attention start to come back… If not… Give it another week… Then talk to your doc about ADHD or ADD. They’ll set you on the right path.

Your Questions About Pepto Bismol Diet

Ken asks…

Bad Stomach For Weeks After Stomach Bug? HELP PLZ?

So about a five weeks ago I got what I think was a stomach bug, it consisted of the basic inability to eat food without bad diarrhea or nausea. I saw a doctor about this and he gave me some antibiotics. I can now eat food without immediately needing to poop. But I still have some REALLY annoying symptoms that haven’t quit for like 4 weeks now. I ALWAYS feel like I have to poop but never am able to (constipated) and when I do it is usually some permutation of diarrhea. Also I have severely lost my appetite, now I’m not hungry till at least 2PM at which time I eat a sandwich and I am full for the rest of the day. If I eat anything more I just feel like I’m going to throw up.

I have tried:
*Antibiotics (by Dr.)
*Pepto Bismol
*No caffeine intake
*No Dairy intake
*Low fat diet
*Acidofilus
*Lots of water

ANY HELP WOULD BE AMAZING!!!!

Sharon asks…

Constant Stomach Aches, Whats wrong?

Since monday, i have had a stomach ache all day. Ive gone to the bathroom alot, and when i drink something, i am most likly going to burp. Ive taken Pepto Bismol once, and it worked for like 30 mintues.

Im kind of scared, dont know whats wrong.

My parents said it might be my diet, and said they will take me to the doctor if it keeps up.

Any suggestions to what is happening?

Hcg Diet answers:

It could be diet related. This could happen if you tend to eat greasy foods. It could also be caused by stress, or you could have put your back out.
I know that sounds strange but I know when my back is out when I can’t burp.
Stick to a bland diet for a few days and also try to de stress yourself.

Michael asks…

Recurring Stomach Issues?

Ok I know we all get those days where everything sucks, and we have all the symptoms that call for Pepto Bismol…but my story is a bit different. It seems these days for me are happening more and more frequent. I never thought anything of them until now…is it possible that recurring stomach problems could be a sign of something serious? Like some long-term disease? I mean I guess I’ll admit my diet isn’t the best…but I get plenty of excercise…or try to.

Hcg Diet answers:

“problems” is a bit too vague to be able to suggest what issue other than diet could be causing you difficulty..i can only suggest you try to be a bit more specific or change your diet and see if the problems persist..then if the problems do persist you could ask again with more details and someone can maybe help you..best wishes..e

Mark asks…

Yellow/Greenish mucus in stool?

When I adopted my puppy 4 months ago he had a yellow mucus in his stool. He was treated for Coccidia and Giardia.

NOW 4 months later he is showing signs again of these problems. His still is lose ad and contains a lot of yellow mucus.

My vet advised that I give him pepto bismol for the next two days, feed him a bland diet of rice and chicken and give him plenty of water. If it does not go away then they will treat him again for the infections.

Is it common for these ailments to just come back so long after the fact? He has no interaction with other dogs at this time b/c he just wrapped up all of his vaccinations. He is kept in a very clean area. I do not understand how he could have gotten this again.

Is yellow mucus in stool a sign of anything else? I am worried since this is the second round 4 months later that there could be something seriously wrong with him.

I did go ahead and set a vet apt for tomorrow in case things are still looking unstable.

Hcg Diet answers:

I would take a stool sample in and have it checked. It is possible, and it does sound like Coccidia. Although it won’t *re-infest* on it’s own, since you said that he just wrapped up all of his vaccinations, he could have picked it up at the Vet’s office. There are so many people that don’t realize that the only thing that is sanitized after each use, is the exam table itself. Therefore, this dog could have picked it up by just walking on the floor of the facility. Yep, if a dog steps on in *infected* area, and then licks it’s paws, it has just been re-infested. Take a stool sample in and see what the reading is. He may need to be treated with Albon again.
