Sudden, unexplained diarrhea?  Could be giardia!  This parasite is common in our area and is water-borne.  Discourage your dog from drinking from streams, rivers and irrigation ditches, especially during high run-off periods.  See your vet with a stool specimen.

If you know for sure that it is not giardia, try Laurie's Slipper Elm Sludge recipe to help diarrhea or constipation.

Dissolve 1 Tbsp Slippery Elm Bark Powder in 1/4 C boiling water, stir, then add 1/4 C aloe vera juice (from the inner fillet leaves - it will say that on the bottle.  Add 30 drops liquid chlorophyll, stir. 

Keep in the fridge. 

Dosage isn't too critical -- 1/2 tsp for a cat up to 1 Tbs for a big dog, in food, once or twice a day. 

All these ingredients can be found at Vitamin Cottage.
