I'm still here. It takes a few moments for your transmission to come through.
Any changes at all that occur with a dog can certainly cause diarrhea. If she has been that sensitive to what variety of water is used in the past, it could certainly be causing issues for her now. As well, the information on my end says that you're in the USA. If so, we also have to assume that there may be the risk that if you live in an area with any variety of fireworks being shot off that the stress of the noise may be causing a GI upset for her.The safest change that we can make at home is feeding a bland diet for a few days. This typically involves feeding boiled chicken breast and rice. You are also able to use Imodium (please check the associated link on this page for warnings with breed concerns: http://www.walkervalleyvet.com/otc-meds.htm) to help calm the diarrhea, if you wish. Personally, I'd start with the bland diet for a few days and see how she is feeling.If she's been slowing down on her eating, this may indicate that a GI upset has been coming on for a while and that it's simply come to a head over the course of the weekend. If her diarrhea persists, have her seen by your veterinarian so that medications can be started like metronidazole. She will need to be seen at the ER this weekend if you see any blood, vomiting begins and persists, etc.
