Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...

Does Corky have any underlying health issues?

Is he on any medications?

Are his gums nice and pink?

When was the last time he had a check up with his vet?

no health isses. No medications. Somewhat pink. 6-15-16 rabies shot and heartworm test

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Because this started so soon after getting vaccines, I worry that this could be a reaction to the rabies vaccine, so if this were me, I would give the vet a call and have them take a peek at him, just to be on the safe side.

At the vet, they'll probably want to get him on some medication to get the diarrhea to stop and may want to give him some IV fluids to rehydrate him.

Although not super common, vaccine reactions can happen, so having the vet take a peek will be the best bet.

I hope he's feeling better soon.
