Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. Im sorry to hear that Chipper is not feeling well. You can try switching to human chicken baby food. Give only a few tablespoons every 3 hours. Give Pepto Bismol- 1.5 teaspoons twice per day for a Lhasa..Im assuming about 10 lbs. No carrot or banana or other treats. If the diarrhea continues despite this treatment, you need to take him in to see a vet as it might be something more complicated than just some upset GI tract. I hope this helps. Take care.
