Thank you for using our service. Based on the information you have provided, it sounds like your dog is experiencing gastrointestinal upset. This can be caused by a number of things, including dietary indiscretion (eating something they shouldn't have), infection, or even stress.

Before going to the animal hospital, there are a few things you can do to help your dog feel more comfortable:

Keep your dog hydrated by offering them plenty of fresh water. You can also try offering small amounts of electrolyte solution to help replace lost fluids.
Try feeding your dog a bland diet of boiled white rice and boiled lean meat (such as chicken or turkey) to see if this helps firm up their stool.
If your dog is not interested in food, try offering small, frequent meals of a highly palatable wet food.
If your dog's symptoms persist or worsen, it's important to have them seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible. They will be able to determine the cause of your dog's symptoms and provide appropriate treatment.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
