My dog has had...

My dog has had diarrhea for 3 days and wont eat. She acts normal but has watery diarrhea. I gave her pepto bismol to stop it. Came home yesterday to a house full of poop. I gave her an immodium tablet. And so far so good but she wont eat. She did eat her milk bone this morning but that was it. I have been cooking her rice and she wont eat it. No blood in stool no vomiting.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?

I dont know. My husband had changed her food and I dont know if that was it. He switched the brand and added can food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Sam

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sam?

She has been drinking water. She is 5 yrs old boxer. So sweet. She does greet me at the door when I come home and plays with her sister but just wont eat and I am worried. She has never been sick before.

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I"m so sorry that Sam has been having diarrhea. I recommend having his stool checked for intestinal parasites, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, etc. Once your vet figures out what is causing the diarrhea, they can treat with the appropriate medication(s).
