I am sorry to hear Siggi has diarrhea. No one likes diarrhea!

I would feed a bland diet of boiled chicken and boiled rice for the next 2 days then transition back to the normal diet. You can give a single 2mg ammonium (loperamide) capsule, however I would not repeat it. If there is no improvement in 24 hours, then he really should see a vet to make sure nothing else is going on.
