Depends really how sick he looks like. Does he have diarrhea but acting normally? Or is he lethargic?
My vet always asks if there is blood in the poop, because that means there's an infection...in which case, he will ask me to bring the dog in along with the poop sample.
If there is no blood in the poop, he will ask me to observe the dog overnight, make sure the dog drinks, give the dog rice and boiled chicken. If the diarrhea is not over in 2 days, that's when I have to bring the dog in (also with a poop sample).
But, always bring the dog to the vet if he is also throwing up in addition to having watery poop. They can give him an anti nausea shot so he can at least keep his food in.
It is very important that the dog is drinking.
Hope your dog feels better soon!
