If you wean her into the dog food over a period of 1-2 weeks it should not get her sick. Just mix both food together and gradually eliminate the human. It is extremely important that she stops getting human food or she will never eat her dog food.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
1- Any blood in the diarrhea?
2- How much does she weigh?
The jelly is mucus which is a sign of inflammation in the colon. This is what you can do:
1- Pepto Bismol 1 teaspoon every 8 hours for 1-2 days.
2- No food or water for 8-12 hours, need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest. Then, offer small amount of water followed by a diet of rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her regular diet over a period of 1-2 weeks. Keep her indoors in a cool room and no exercise when fasting.3- Supplement with a probiotic (fortiflora), these are friendly bacteria that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.4- If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.
You're welcome. :)
