Q. MY DOG HAS VERY SOFT, SCOOPABLE YELLOW STOOLS X 2 WEEKS. HE IS VERY HAPPY EATS WELL BUT THIS IS A CHANGE SINCE HE WAS KENNELED A FEW WEEKS AGO.
A. Submit a stool sample to your vet to rule out intestinal parasites. Withhold food for 24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice) in small frequent amounts. Feed until the stool is normal then transition slowly to the regular diet. If the soft stool does not resolve, see your veterinarian.
