Q. My pup has diahrrea for one 1 day now. She seemed sick yesterday but seems fine today eating drinking and playing. Still has the poops tho.

A. You can try adding some fiber to her diet - boiled white rice, some canned pumpkin (5 or 6 tablespoons per meal). But if the diarrhea doesn't resolve after 24 hours of the additional fiber, or if she worsens (starts vomiting, gets lethargic, etc) take her in to see your vet. There's likely an underlying cause that needs medications.
