HelloCustomer

How old is she?

What breed?

What are you feeding her for food and treats?

Has she had anything to eat besides dog food?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
shes a 7 year old american eskimo. we got her from the humane society on weds. the 7th. around the 15th she had diarrea. it was yellow, and sort of mucuosy. since then it has gotten better, but still very yellow. she has been eating the same as my other dog, pedigree dry food, with a little canned food mixed in. has had a couple of treats, and a couple rawhides.

Thank you.

Do the whites of her eyes or gums look an abnormal color compared to your other dog?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
not really,its hard to see the whites, their eyes are all black, she's got a lil bloodshot in them, but my other one does too
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
oh...last night and today, i fed her white rice and boiled chicken. hoping it would stiffen her stool..it did, a little
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 7 years ago.

I would start with having a fecal sample checked for giardia and whip worms.

Sometimes bright yellow stool can indicate a problem with the liver (inflammation and jaundice), the pancreas (lack of pancreatic enzymes), or the gall bladder (gall stones and bile). The way to determine if there is a problem with one of these internal organs is to have a blood chemisty run on her. Since she is still eating and not vomiting I do not think it is too severe at this point.

If you are feeding her anything that is light colored that can make her feces yellow as well.

Reply to Dr. Gabby's Post: if she does have either of those, it's cureable,right?
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 7 years ago.

Yes giardia and whip worms are curable.

If she has a problem with her internal organs it can be treated. It might be curable if it is caused by a bacteria. Then it could be treated with antibiotics. If she had hepatitis or pancreatitis or an intestinal infection those could be cured with antibiotics.
