Q. My puppy has deherria what can I do?
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. You can with hold food for 12 hours, then start by feeding a bland diet, like boiled white meat chicken and boiled white rice mixed 25%/75%. Feed small (1/4 cup) frequent (every 2 hours) amounts for 12 hours, then if no more diarrhea transition back slowly to his normal diet. If the diarrhea continues, or if he's vomiting or not eating or lethargic, seek veterinary care to determine the cause of the diarrhea and get appropriate treatment.
