My little Shih-Tzu has had diarrhea for 2 days, she is

Customer Question

My little Shih-Tzu has had diarrhea for 2 days, she is drinking and eating a little. Her little fanny is red from going so much. What can I do to help her. I made boiled chicken and rice for her this morning but so far hasn't eaten any of it.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the Shih-Tzu will be able to digest that. What is the Shih-Tzu's name?
Customer: Zoey
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Zoey?
Customer: No, she wants treats, but I wont let her have them

Hi this is Dr. Gabby. Right before the diarrhea started did she have any new foods or treats? Did she get into the garbage or eat anything unusual outside?

Is there any blood in the diarrhea or is the diarrhea the consistency of water?
