If the loose stool is still present I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Diarrhea that lasts longer than 24 hours is concerning. The loose stool can be caused by many different things including intestinal parasites, infection, inflammation of the GI tract, or a more serious underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the diarrhea after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases.

Many human medications can be harmful if not used correctly.
