Sorry to hear about little D. When my little guy had IBS bloody diarrhea, Sabine had me give him slippery elm. NOW is the brand name. It really does work to calm down their intestines and stops the diarrhea. You take 1 teaspoon of the powder (don't use the capsules) and add it to 1 cup of boiling water. Stir it constantly until it dissolves. Add 1 teaspoon of honey or sugar. As it dissolves it will get thicker. I would just put a few tablespoons in a bowl or dish and he would drink it up. It's sweet and he loved it. Once cooled it lasts 2 days in the refrigerator. As a matter of fact I take it myself on occasion. It tastes sweet and smells nutty. Google slippery elm for dogs diarrhea. The only thing is you should give it separate from medications. It coats the stomach and intestines, making their cramps and pain go away, however it can make medications less absorbed because it does coat the stomach. The other thing that helps is plain canned pumpkin. NOT the one that has the spices in it.
