Default HELP Puppy diarrhea

Hey everyone so I've had my puppy Nylah for about 2 weeks and shes turning 3 months tomorrow!
Shes been very happy and active but when I took her outside this morning she had Diarrhea.. She would do it in a spot than move up a couple inches and than do it again..
Any tips and suggestions? I fill up a sandwich baggie a day and separate it throughout the day. My friend (the woman I bought the dog from) told me to add a bit of sugar to her water and it should help solidify things up..

I'm not to sure what to do.. please help

I've also had only one of her sets of shots done and she goes out into the backyard quite frequently to go the washroom, is there any chances shes got a parasite or anything?

Vet visit check for Giardia. Bring a stool sample. It's hard to detect you may have to bring another to be checked. Pure pumpkin plain can firm up stools. I'm betting it's parasite though

Take a stool sample to the vet and have him do a parasite check...worms/coccidia and a giardia snap test (giardia is a different test than the worms/coccidia).

A little pure pumpkin in her food might help if she just got into something in the backyard which doesn't agree with her.

Plenty of info on pumpkin for dogs with a quick search.

Don't just treat at home and you can't just drop of a Stool sample

Diarrhea in young pups is very concerning and I would be worried about parvo way more than giardia
