Second opinion] My friends dog has had diarrhea for about a week

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

Behavior wise he is normal. I have been feeding him taste of the wild dog food that his owner gave me to feed him.

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

I have looked online for some suggestions like feeding a bland diet with rice and broth from white meat chicken. That did not help. It seemed to be funnier afterwards

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I'm Dr. Sarah, a veterinarian with over 10 years experience and am here to help! I am reviewing your question and will be back with a reply.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I'm sorry your friend's dog is having some problems. That's disappointing that the bland diet didn't help...usually a day or two of that helps most mild diarrheas. Concerns would be a parasite, a virus, a food intolerance, or eating something he's not supposed to. At home you could try immodium at about 0.5mg per 10#, so a 50# ***** would get around 2 mg twice daily. If that is not helping then I highly suggest you get a stool sample checked for parasites and get some stronger medicine from your vet.
