We have a 2 yr old red corgi heeler, she hass been having runny stool. We have done the rice and chicken thibg and it barely did the trick. Do u ladies know have to get runny poop solid??


Sunshine has now welll started yesterday poop solid. I honestly didn't know when it started(as Chris mostly walks her, we live in apartments) but as Chris reports to me it seemed like forever. The vet here prices are extremely high, so we try to fix the problem ourselves and what we try doesn't work THEN is when we'll take her in. My MIL is like a dog expert & cat, so Chris did the plain white rice and chicken method. it somewhat worked then when we cut up the watermelon as i was snacking on i thought hmmm why not i gave some to Sunshine...BAM it worked she poops normal now, solid,brown in color, just normal looking. Watermelon cures all i guess HA HA HA HA lol jk Sunshines lucky its my current craving and we buy the huge watermelons lol Oh i gotta show ya girls a shot i did when i was using my SLR.

i was fiddling with my shutter speed, she was actually blinking not sleeping lol

How long has she been having runny stool? She may actually have caught a bug of some sort. Also have you changed her food lately?

Has she gotten into anything lately and how long has she had it?

Typically a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice (not minute rice) is fed for 3-10 days depending on how bad the runs are but past 2-4 it's pushing it without a medical cause IMO. There's 100% pure canned pumpkin (NOT pie filling) you could give 1-2 tsp 1-2 times a day to see if that helps or psyllium 1/2 tsp 1-2 times a day BUT it isn't normal for a dog to have diarrhea for more than 2-3 days without something causing it (ie getting into bbq drippings, a food that doesn't agree with them, intestinal parasite, etc).

If it's been more than 2-3 days you really need to go into the vet and have a fecal ran to make sure you aren't dealing with some type of intestinal parasite (worms are very common this time of year due to fleas) or something else that would be causing it.

I know it's gross, but how runny is runny, how long have they had it, how many times a day are they going, is it uncontrollable or can they wait to go, any blood in it?

If you did the chicken and rice for a few days and there's no reason that you're aware of for it to be happening then a vet visit is an order for sure. Good luck!
