HI. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** It sounds like this guy has the time of his life in that water situation. I wouldn't want to deprive him of that fun. As far as the ingestion of the salt water and the diarrhea that develops, one thing I will utilize in similar situations is an antibiotic called metronidazole. It is something that a lot of dogs get started on when boarding / kenneling as it can help to keep the bacterial population in the gut from getting out of whack. I would be curious as to if he may be eating anything new on these trips that may be a part of this too. Could he be getting any new foods or treats that may be a part of this?
