Ok. So your pet has diarrhea. Have you tried anything so far to help with this?

Adding fiber can help the colon retain water and correct diarrhea. A diet that contains whole grains (barley, oats, whole wheat), vegetables and fruit can all add fiber to the diet.

I would also recommend a probiotic. For over the counter products, I like pure Lactobacillus supplements for your pet. If this is hard to find, you can just give Culturelle, which is another probiotic that is in capsule form. I recommend keeping the capsules whole because the organism remain active inside this way. These are a once daily treatment.
