VERY soft stool...

Hey Guys,
Daisy has had VERY soft stools for 5 days now...up in the night pooping and this morning I thought I saw a teeny bit of blood. Today is Sunday, and my Vet had a stroke so I need to find a new one. Should I try an over the counter dog anti-diarrheal med or just take her to a new vet tomorrow? Not sure if it was blood and this happened before a couple of months ago. She is 7 months old. Thanks, Pamela

It might be safer to try a new vet. I would avoid any meds. Has anything changed in her eating habits or diet. ?

My advise would be to get her into a new vet as soon as possible...bring a fresh stool sample with you for sure.
Also,feed a bland diet until she is seen.

Thanks, Guys.
Saw the Vet yesterday and brought a stool sample. Daisy had a really high bacteria count with a ton of plant matter. The Vet put her on a bland diet and prescribed two meds to take for 2 weeks. Let's hope it does the trick! Thanks for the advice, ~Pamela
