You can give him pepto bismol.

1 teaspoon or 1/3 tablet per each 10 pounds of dog.

It can be given every 8 hours as needed.

If he just had diarrhea I would fast him for 12 hours meaning no food for 12 hours.

He can have all the water he wants.

After the 12 hour fast offer him one spoonful of the chicken and rice mixture you made.

Wait an hour to see if he has diarrhea. If he does well he can have more.

If he has diarrhea again he definitely needs to see a vet.

Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
