I am so sorry to hear that your dog has loose stools

I can give you some basic suggestions but if there is no change please consider a veterinary exam and fecal evaluation to ensure there is nothing more serious going on with his digestive tract but diarrhea can also be an early indicator of other problems that may require attention to prevent progression to weight loss, vomiting, decreased appetite. I would much rather treat him before he is acting sick and dehydrated versus later when it is much more difficult to get him feeling better but also to avoid him not feeling well

- White rice and lean boiled meat such chicken but waiting 12-24 hours to feed to allow the stomach to rest and the intestinal spasms causing the diarrhea to subside
- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.5 mg/ kg every 12 hours to help settle her stomach. If you have omeprazole that is also an option for settling the stomach at 1 mg/kg daily
- Canned pumpkin 1 tbsp twice daily can also help firm up stools
- Leash walks to help nausea, cramping, and spasms to resolve 15+ minutes 2-3 times daily. Not running around in the yard but regulated exercise

If there is any blood or mucus in the stools as well please consider a veterinary exam sooner rather than later to ensure that we treat more aggressively for these symptoms. In addition, monitor for signs of nausea (licking lips, increased salivation, eating grass)

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today. I hope your pet is feeling better soon!
