    Stool sample done? It needs to be checked for bacteria. If that is neg ( and hopefully they will test for worms at the same item) then he would need a bland diet until formed stools, then reintroduce the kibble, slowly. ( been there, have the thirst 5 times!!) definitely add probiotics to his food daily!! goodluck!!

    Bland diet is boiled rice ( white, NOT brown) very lean boiled hamburger( like sirloin), cottage cheese, eggs and broth if needed. If your pup can tolerate chicken boiled chicken is good too.They go on this until the stool is firm, then they are transitioned slowly ( over a 5-7 day period)back to kibble, as long as you don't think it's the kibble causing the diarrhea. With no medical reason ( parasites or bacteria) for the loose stools, I would have to question what he is eating.. So back to basics and add thing one at a time, over a period of days. Any loose stools, back off and try again. It is soooo trial and error with these guys!! Good luck!!

    Poor boy, a bland diet is cooked rice with some hamburger meat in it, or chicken if he is not allergic to chicken. Let us know how he is doing. Once his tummy gets a little better you can give a spoonful of plain yogurt and get some probiotics from your vet.

    Mary's response is right. You gotta get him on the bland diet now.

    Keep it simple. @Bentley64

    Just do the rice and the meat if you're concerned about adding potential irritants.

    There's a remote chance that cottage cheese would agitate some lactose intolerance issues.

    The rice and meat will be sufficient, and I bet you see an immediate (like immediate) cessation of poop explosions.

    Chicken was 100% safe for Baxter. He tolerates it better than beef even. Each dog is different. But if you're worried, just get some ground beef, mix it with white rice, and you're set.

    I would say 3/4 meat 1/4 rice. Easy weezy.

    I also had amazing luck with mashed potatoes (no skin), but rice is def more often recommended from what I've seen.

    I would get him Slippery Elm (health food store or online) it helps coat the gut
    AND heals the irritation, it is well tolerated. Do you think meds for heart murmur
    are causing this? Cut out all treats & kibble toppings and feed only bland diet.
    Also buy pure pumpkin (not pie mix) add 1 TBSP to each meal to help firm poo.
    Make sure he's drinking lots of water as he will dehydrate quickly if this continues.
    Maybe add water to food mixture as well as keeping fresh water handy (give
    distilled water right now) or give ice cubes if he likes them. Let us know how he does!
