Hello,
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Muffin. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
How much does she weigh? You can give Pepto Bismal, or Imodium. If you tell me her weight, I can give you the dosage. For an example, if she is 30 pounds, she could take 1/2 tablespoon or 1/2 caplet of Pepto, or 1 Imodium, every 12 hours.
It may help to give her probiotics, beneficial bacteria supplements. I like the ones for dogs, like Fortiflora or Proviable. These are available without prescription.
Let me know what else I can answer.
