Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry you're going through this with your dog. Some dogs will get diarrhea after boarding because of exposure to different GI bugs. As well as stress from being away from home. I would recommend the following to help with the diarrhea. If it doesn't clear up in 24-48 hours or if she starts vomiting, I would take her to the vet for a work up.You can give Metamucil which is a fiber supplement that can help firm up the stool. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration. You can also give some canned food or chicken baby food to help with appetite if the chicken and rice isn't appetizing. Let me know if you have any other questions.If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
