I am sorry to hear your dog is having this problem. Is there any blood in the stool?Is your dog on monthly heart worm prevention every month?

It is real runny and dark, has happened 3 days in a row. Have given her pepto bismal

I see.Heart worm prevention prevents any intestinal worms which could be causing a problem like diarrhea, so that is recommended to be used on a monthly basis. It also prevents heart worms which are lethal in dogs. I recommend picking this up from your vet. Regarding the grass and diarrhea: this seems to be very common at this time of the year. I have seen about 10 dogs just this week for this problem. The first thing to do is obviously stop them from eating the grass. Once they have diarrhea, I typically recommend starting with a bland diet such as plain boiled chicken and plain white rice for 24 hours. A dose of pepto bismol can help, as well as a dose of 2mg of Immodium. I recommend trying those out to see if they help. If there is still no improvement by monday, a vet visit is recommended.
