Q. Why is my dogs stool runny
A. Parasites, dietary indiscretions, food sensitivities can all cause runny stool. Without a physical exam and diagnostics, the cause may not be known. Even then, the cause is sometimes not diagnosed. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the diarrhea doesnâ€™t stop, see your veterinarian.
