Customer Question

My dog has diarrea. It started last night. Last night she had an accident. Today starting at 3pm She needs to go out every hour. The only thing that I can think of that made her sick is some pill pockets that have been sitting out on the counter and we're a couple weeks old. I gave her one yesterday around 5pm and today around lunch. She is also panting hard when she needs to go out. I wonder if she got selmonnila from the pill pockets. Are there any home remedies? I read dogs can have pepto bismol.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Are you seeing any blood in her diarrhea?
How is her appetite? Is she drinking?
Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
