How long has she had it? Make sure she drinks plenty - just little sips if she can't keep fluids in for long, but give her things to drink.
A fizzy drink that's been left out to go flat is good - as is a glass of water with a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of salt in it - it replaces the salts and electrolytes.

Get her to check the colour of her pee (sorry to be gross) if it's pale, she's drinking enough and isn't dehydrated.

have a look here too! Access Denied

(edit - the link says acess denied but it does work)

Hi fairy Lu,
Diarrhoea is not usually serious, when someone has cancer it can be serious then.
She needs to drink plenty of fluids, chemists sell sachets for preventing dehydration.
Then start on a light diet once her tummy settles.
If your worried at all seek the advice of a dr.
Try not to worry, also it wasn't your fault.
Disinfect the toilet seat that will kill the bugs etc.
Take care

thanks mayflower x
and thanks for all your support recently ,i really appreciate it :hug:
i phoned NHS direct and they were really helpful
they told her to contact her doctor tomorrow

that is probably because of her age ,she is 89 x

Hey Lu, haven't spoken to you here on the forum for a while. :hug:

I know it's really difficult not to worry, especially when you have the association in your mind of what happened with your Mum. In my opinion, it's probably natural that this might make you feel scared.

Please don't blame yourself just because you've had it. If anything, try to take reassurance from the fact that you had it but you're better now.

If it's any consolation, i've been struggling with this to. I do have irritable bowel syndrome and for some reason, really cold or really hot weather can trigger it. Also, even if you enjoy Christmas, it's still stressful and our bodies can react to that by eliminating waste quicker than normal.

Has Maddie got any underlying illness?
It's not cheap to go to a vet, but that might be an option if you're really worried.

I think animals are very intuitive and it may be that she's picking up on your anxiety and so is behaving weird because she can tell you're worried.
If it's bad, you can feed her on plain rice for a few days but it'll clear itself up, i'm sure. She might have eaten or licked something outside that wasn't very good for her.
