Hi Lou,

I am so sorry Sammy has diarrhea.

Get a jar of chicken baby food with no onion or garlic. Add one tablespoon of rice cereal or oiled white rice. Feed only that for 48 hours to firm his stools. Continue with the probiotic as well or give a half tsp a day of plain yogurt.

As far as diet, wet food is best but it may take a few days to adjust if he is used to dry food:

Please let me know how he is doing.

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!
