Q. Diarrhea every few hours, came after a very large bowel movement. Stool is liquid, no form. Has an appetite, and energy. Will it get better?

A. It sounds like an episode of colitis (large bowel inflammation). Usually with bland diet (boiled chicken and rice), probiotics and ( it depends on the case), short course of antibiotics these case improve quickly and completely. You can try to change the diet first for 24-48hours and if does not help take her to you veterinarian for a check up.
