Okay. He also has seem to continue having a big appetite. and I have not seen him vomit. He's a sniffer so his nose is always a little extra wet. I've noticed when he sniffs a lot outside it can be white ish on the sides of his nose, but other then that It's clear. And he has not gotten into anything nor ate of the ordinary recently.

He weighs about 63 lbs. Last night it was midnight in the backyard when he had it so I couldn't tell. And he just had it again within the last hour all over my mom's carpet in her closet and she had obviously tried to clean it up immediately. So i have no idea on that one. The symptoms I've noticed are the diarrhea and the excessive sneezing and snoring.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
apparently he just drank a lot of water 20 min ago. i've also been advised that maybe canned pumpkin could help his stools?

Sumner, the diarrhea and sneezing are two separate issues. Excessive sneezing can be caused by allergies, debris/dust, an infection, a foreign body in the nasal cavity, etc. As far as diarrhea this can be caused by parasites, infections, dietary indiscretion, etc. to name a few causes. This is what you can do:

1- Pepto Bismol 1 tablespoon every 8 hours for 1-2 days.

2- No food or water for 8-12 hours, need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest. Then, offer a small amount of water followed by a diet of rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean him back into his regular diet.

3- Supplement with a probiotic, these are friendly bacteria that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.

4- Open the hot water in your bathroom and allow him to breathe the vapor for 3-5 minutes; this will help clear his nasal passages.

5 If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have him checked by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
