We have a 9 year old Yorkie named Buddy. 2 days ago he started having loose bowel movements. We gave him rice and ground beef, but that has not stopped the problem. What would you give or do if this was your pet?

Hi Rick,

I would try chicken broth and rice. See if there is an improvement. The beef maybe too heavy. If he improves then add lean, broiled chicken to the rice and slowly get him back on his normal diet.

However, you may need to take Buddy to your vet for fluids and to get an intestinal medicine to help clear the bug.
I have had to do this before and the fluids and medicine usually help the dog improve within a day.

Good luck.
