We have a five month old Lhasa Apso puppy who has had diarrhoea since Saturday, I think it's been caused by changing her food or possibly by loosing her first tooth which happened yesterday.

It's not constant and it's just happening at her usual pooing times and it's only about a dessert spoon amount that's coming out at a time.

I stopped all treats yesterday and tried giving her plain boiled rice but she's not too keen on that so this morning I've mixed it with her normal puppy food - I'm going to the shops this morning so I'm going to pick up a chicken breast to boil and mix with the rice to try and bind her.

She's not having any accidents in the house and is perfectly fine in herself getting up to her usual mischief.

It was runny & lumpy on Saturday and just runny yesterday afternoon and this morning.

Should I take her to the vet or can I treat this at home?

I keep a tube of Pro Kohlin for when dog has funny tummy. You just put in on her food and it works wonders.

I wonder if it is because you changed her food? Did you change it gradually? If not this is probably what's done it x You have to do it really slowly

Was going to say the same as talia66.

Changing to a different food should take at least a week.

We have been doing it gradually mixing it with her old food and reducing her old food bit by bit, I'm starting to think it might be because her teeth have been bothering her.

Is the new food a bit richer? Perhaps she needs less of the new food, or maybe it just doesn't agree with her.

I put my dog on a high protein food, at the advice of my then vet, and it completely messed up her digestion.

I wouldn't let it go on too long. I'd be speaking to the vet by tomorrow.

She's doing so much better now back to normal poos again 💩
