Customer Question

We just brought home a 9 wk old female long haired Chihuahua. She was playing in the grass today and was brought inside to rest periodically. She had water outside with her at all times, but when we got home she tinkled and had two rounds of yellow diarrhea. This morning she had a firm stool. She also ate a bacon flavored "tooth" bone for the first time.
She's still very playful but has a warm nose. I don't know what to do! Please help

Hi there! Thanks for requesting me! Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to ensure I give you the best advice possible. How long have you had her?How is she acting otherwise?How long had you had her when she had the diarrhea?Are you feeding her the same food as where you got her?
