Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

When did this start?

How many times a day does he have a bowel movement?

Has his stool been checked for parasites and protazoa?

What time is the last feeding at night? How much food does he get at this time?

Does he eat any human food or non food items?

Has there been any vomiting?

This started two nights ago
He has about 4 BM a day
Stool has not been checked
He gets a total of 2 cups a day
The last time he eats is at 6pm
He will get human foods at times like some fruits and vegetables that are safe
And there was 2 episodes of vomiting
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that information. Sometimes human foods can cause a problem so I might eliminate some foods for a while and stick to dog food. I might also make the last meal a very light meal with a little bit of canned pumpkin mixed in to firm up the stool.

I would also be taking a sample of the stool for testing as parasites and protazoa can live in the soil for years.

The vomiting is puzzling, sometimes if a dog eats things like rawhides, bones, toys etc, they can get a partial blockage of the intestines so I would want that checked.
