Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

The rainwater itself should not have harmed Baron unless something else was present within the pan itself beforehand.

I can give you some steps to take at home to help your companion’s stomach feel better. It often helps to give a bland diet with higher fiber to help clear diarrhea. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel. Feed in amounts similar to what he would normally eat. Work up to feeding exclusively until at least 3 days following the resolution of the GI upset. After this, work on slowly switching back to the regular food that your companion typically eats over 5-10 days time, depending on how prone to diarrhea he is.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
