Customer Question

I have 2 dogs - sisters, about 6 1/2 years old. In very good health. The larger one (70 lbs) started having diarrhea about 36 hours ago. The smaller one (about 50 lbs) began earlier today. The are NOT lethargic. I've tried Pepto Bismal and Immodium - neither seems to be helping much.
What can I do to stop the diarrhea?

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pets Rawly and Shadow today. I just have a few questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Are you noticing any blood in the diarrhea? Did they eat anything unusual that you know of? Are they on heartworm preventative?
