• I just picked up my 2 year old dog from vet. He has his teeth cleaned and a tooth extraction. I brought him home and gave him a little bit of soft food. I took him outside and he had diarrhea. Probably went 5 times outside. Should I be worried? They said he shouldn’t have diarrhea or vomiting. He seems ok though.

    Hi Adriana,

    If the diarrhea had continued I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Diarrhea can sometimes be caused by stress but this will usually resolve itself within a couple of hours. If the diarrhea has persisted there may be a different underlying cause that likely needs treatment. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the diarrhea and the treatment he needs after they have examined him.

Need more information or advice?
