Hey there, sorry to hear that, it is probably nothing serious, but if you notice some of the warning signs, better check with a vet... Warning Signs That Diarrhea Needs Medical Attention are black, tarry stool, or stool with copious amounts of fresh blood (bright red), loss of appetite, marked lethargy, frequent vomiting,
Signs of abdominal pain (bloating, groaning, panting rapidly or avoidance response when belly is touched)
And if it Lasts longer than 48 hours (Since it can rapidly weaken puppies and geriatrics, or dogs with chronic diseases, they may need veterinary attention sooner.)
However, if your dog has mild diarrhea and doesn’t meet any of the above criteria, the best things to start with are a 24-hour rice-water fast; white rice balls that contain active probiotic cultures; and the oral administration of an intestinal protectant such as kaolin clay and pectin (KaoPectate™) or a suspension containing bismuth subsalicylate (PeptoBismol™).
