hi there my name is*****

Do you mean liquid diarrhea? Is there any blood or mucous in it and is she straining to defecate? Is she up to date on her vaccines? So she'll take the immodium but not the yogurt?

If she won't eat the yogurt I'd take her off her dog food and start feeding her a bland diet of rice and boiled chicken or boiled beef or tofu and rice. Or if not rice than boiled potato. Something bland, boring and easy to digest until her stools firm up a bit. How is she acting? Still herself or lethargic?
