Friend diarrhea can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: Dietary indiscretion, ingestion of a foreign body, infections, etc. to name a few causes. This is what you can do:1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or imodium.
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 (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her regular diet.3- Supplement with a probiotic, these are friendly bacteria that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.4- Follow up with your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.
