Hi, I'm Dr. Bonk. I'm very sorry to hear about Petie's troubles. Most probiotics for humans are safe, it depends on the brand and dosage. You can also use plain yogurt, just a couple of tsp on his food. He can also have a little Pepto Bismol, 1-2 ml twice a day. If the diarrhea doesn't clear up in a couple of days with these treatments, it will time to get Petie to a vet for further evaluation. I hope this helps. Please contact me with any other questions you may have. Thank you and good luck!
