Friend, the yellow color diarrhea stool is common when the intestines are overactive. In a puppy, common causes are dietary indiscretion, intestinal parasites, infections, etc. to name a few causes. In this case, I would recommend a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian and fecal analysis as an initial screening test.

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. You see, stopping diarrhea with medication can make things worse if this is related to an infection or ingestion of a foreign body.

2- No food or water for 4-6 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 bacterias that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.

4- Follow up with 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!
