Hello! My name is***** will be the expert to assist you today with your vet-related questions.

When did the diarrhoea start?

Based on the information you have provided so far, my best recommendation is to give your local vet a call and book Clyde in for an enteritis. I strongly suspect we are dealing with something infectious, but unfortunately, due to the RCVS law, we are not allowed to dispense any antibiotics without a hands-on consult. If you can't handle him, see if your vet can't offer a home visit for you (or a video consult if he's been examined in the past few months)
