Contact your regular veterinary hospital and monitor your dog
- If your regular veterinary hospital is open, contact them now. If they are closed, it is probably safe to wait until morning. During your call, be sure to tell them what else is going on in addition to the diarrhea.
- In this case, it is the other symptoms you’ve selected in combination with the diarrhea that makes this a high priority situation.
- Monitor your dog closely for any new symptoms or changes in behavior. If your dog’s gums change color (especially a white or blue-ish tinge), or if their stool becomes very bloody or black in appearance, contact an emergency veterinary hospital right away.
- Get a sample of the diarrhea if possible. Store in the fridge if not going to the vet right away.
