First of all, I’m sorry that I couldn’t answer your question quickly.

Thank you for using our service.
The reason for the diarrhea is so various. It could be stress or anxiety, changes in diet, parasites, bacterial infection after eating garbage, or some medication relatively treated easily. However, many reasons for diarrhea are related to severe diseases, including pancreatitis, severe inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, live or kidney problems, ingestion of poisons, toxins, or foreign objects (ex. plastic or fabric), or viral infection (ex. parvovirus).

First, you fast her for the next 24 hours.
Fasting approach is sometimes effective in acute vomiting or diarrhea. And give her plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
Second, gradually introduce a bland (no bone chicken, boiled white rice) or low-fat diet into her diet. Low fat is crucial as high fat provokes stomach acid which can induce vomiting and diarrhea.
At this point, it should be noted that
- You should eat white rice rather than brown rice.
- Give her a small amount.
- There should be no seasonings or spices.

If she does not improve after all these tries, please allow your veterinarian to examine her in order to determine the root cause of her digestive problem and recommend the most effective treatment.

And if she has more than 2 bloody stools, take her to the hospital right away. Bloody stool can be caused by hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, gastric ulcer, bacterial infection, tumor, toxin poisoning, liver disease, etc. It is necessary to determine the exact cause through examination and to treat it accordingly.

Please let me know if your pet has any new symptoms or other questions. I apologize once more for the delayed response.
