Hello. For uncomplicated diarrhea, I usually do a couple things. I first have the owners give canned pumpkin at home. The extra fiber can help firm up the stools. You can give 1-2 teaspoons with his meals. You can also add a little yogurt to the food. The Acidophilus in yogurt is a probiotic. Lastly, you could give a one time dose of Loperamide (Imodium). You can give 1/4 of a 2 mg tablet once. If that doesn't work, get to a vet and put him on a round of Metronidazole to get this cleared up. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
