Q. My dog will be fine with her bowels then all of a sudden she will have diarrhea it seems like every uther day or so .we are feeding rice and hamburg

Answered By

A. The best thing to do is to determine the cause of the diarrhea. I would submit a stool sample to your veterinarian for analysis for parasites. Remember if feeding hamburger, you should buy the leanest type possible and rinse all the fat off of it. Boiled chicken may be a better option to help settle her stomach. If the diarrhea continues, contact your veterinarian.
