Q. My puppy is having pudding like stools for about a week now. She's eating drinking and playing fine. Should I be worried or take her to the vet?
A. Try withholding food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet ( boiled boneless / skinless chicken and plain white rice) in small, frequent amounts. Feed until the stool is normal then transition slowly to the regular diet. If the diarrhea does not resolve, see your veterinarian. Submit a stool sample to rule out intestinal parasites.
