no blood, no vomiting, not lethargic, I believe she may have got some soapy water, I'm not sure, from the shower

Friend, diarrhea can be caused by many different medical conditions. I will not be able to pinpoint the exact underlying cause without a hands-on examination and some testing, I am sorry. But, in a puppy common causes are dietary indiscretion, ingestion of a foreign body, parasites, infections, etc. to name a few causes. This is what you can do:

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- Change her diet to rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her 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- If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination and fecal analysis as an initial screening test. If she starts to vomit, becomes lethargic, anorexic, bloody diarrhea, etc. do not wait and have her checked immediately by a veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
