Our expert says:
I'm sure that by this time the problem would have resolved. Normally I just recommend changing to a pure meat diet (like chicken only) for a few days until the diarrhoea subsides. I do not add rice, as carbohydrates may exacerbate diarrhoea. Once the stools are back to normal, slowly start adding the regular diet again. Obviously, if the diarrhoea continues and get worse and the puppy loses its appetite, it needs veterinary help. I definitely do not recommend using anything like yoghurt or similar preparations, as it typically just causes more of an upset tummy.
