Hello. Thanks for the question.This should resolve on its own over 2-3 days. I would just make he is eating and drinking. You can try something bland like chicken/ rice.I would also add some fiber to help firm up the stools. 1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin with his meals can help add fiber.In the bad cases, some fluids and antibiotics from a vet will help resolve things faster.I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.
