Customer Question

Our dog has been experiencing diarrhea off and on for the past few days. He is a senior dog, 10-1/2 years old and is on senior diet. I put him on rice/chicken diet the past two days which seemed to help; however, at 3AM this morning he wanted to go out and the diarrhea is back. His stool is extremely loose and discolored. Any suggestions as to how I can help him?
