Diarrhea

I have an 11 month mini aussie. The last 2 days he's had a light brown/off yellow diarrhea. He threw up once two days ago and once last night. He's not acting lethargic or running a fever or anything out of the ordinary though. I cut off his food today to let his digestive track reset and will put him on some skinless boiled chicken and rice tomorrow.

Do you think I should see a vet? Or wait?

Thank you

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay. I think your plan to rest his gut was a good one but if the diarrhea and vomiting has continued, hopefully you have seen your veterinarian. Dogs don't tend to eat so indiscriminately as we do and thus any gastrointestinal signs over a day or so worry me for dehydration and possibly a more serious cause. Dr. Sandy
