How old is your puppy? Is he eating, drinking and behaving normally otherwise? Puppies can become dehydrated very quickly so if you have a young puppy I would seek advice from a vet.

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!

Our puppy had the same issue. She was 13 weeks and having loose stool to diarrhea several times a day. Turns out she had intestinal parasites. Gave her 14 days worth of medicine. After 48 hours she was back to regular. Hope your pup gets to dealing better.

home cooked white rice and chicken boiled in plain water (no salt)

use the water in cooking the rice as his drink water...or to make rice water, boil 1 cup white rice grains in about 2-3 cups water. this way, you cook the rice and you have the rice water. wait for the rice water to cool down before giving.

keep the pup on this diet for 2 more days after his poop normalizes, the gradually introduce his regular food (eg...boiled chicken and rice 1st meal, next meal regular kibbles...)
