Yuck, hopefully Max didn't make a mess! Diarrhea can be caused by many things: eating something you're not supposed too, virus, parasite, stress, bowel disease, etc. I'd start with some bland diet (boiled chicken/hamburger and rice) for 2 days. If the diarrhea resolves then wean him back onto his regular food. If after a day or so the diarrhea is still there (or worsening), then a vet visit is warranted for medicine. Take a stool sample with you to check for parasites. If his appetite isn't great you can also give some pepcid AC. How big is he? For a medium sized dog I give 10mg twice daily.

He only had the runs in the AM yesterday, not since. He’s pretty much just laid on the coach since yesterday morning. If he moves he whimpers and whines. Seems very lethargic :( I can try Pepcid- but he’s not interested in eating or drinking
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
He’s 70 pounds

At 70# ***** him 20mg twice daily. Poor guy! Cook up some chicken and rice and see if he'll eat that. You can also add some low sodium chicken broth. Hope he feels better soon! If he's not improving then definitely take him to the vet...an exam can give a lot of information.
