Ok great what other information do you need?

In a young puppy like Amber, the soft stool could be due to the cat food, intestinal parasites, or even the stress of change in a new household. Since she is still eating well and acting normally, I recommend that you wait until Thursday and bring a recent stool sample with you to the vet for testing.

In the meantime, you can start an over the counter human probiotic. For a little one like her, break open a capsule and shake about half of it on her food once daily.
