Customer Question

My dog started a sudden diarrhoea this morning (10:30), which lasted all day(14:00, 19:00, 20:30). At 19:00 one, his stool had some plastic type of paper in it together with other garbage like objects. Other times, it was simply very liquid-y. No blood detected. He looks tired and stays on his mat. Usually he is a very active dog. I saw him eat a small piece of item in the park this morning about 10:00, but that is the only thing I can think of. On the way to the park around 9:30, his stool was still normal. Is there anything I should do now? Or do you think I can wait until tomorrow to take him to the vet?
