Bella has diaorrehea. She has been in the chook pen svanging

Customer Question

Bella has diaorrehea. She has been in the chook pen svanging food I think she has eaten something very off. Bella is a long haaired chiuhauhua approx 3yo she is a rescue dog and is always looking for food. I have bathed her several minutes ago to remove all the stuck on faeces. She is very lethargic and is resting in her doggy bed. I have charcoal caps. and a purgative. Should I trat her with one or another or just keep her under observation? Thanking you Christine
