Help! Ugrent! Chase has diarrhea Need help asap!

He hasn't been out of my sight so he didn't eat anything he should have and he had his regular dinner last night (a can of wet mixed with dry) he hasn't had breakfast yet. I don't know how he got diarrhea please help me figure out how and how to help him!

rosko used to get diarrhea frequently. Sometimes I could trace it back to something he ate. Other times it just seemed random. Usually I would hold off on his food and cook him rice with shredded chicken. Followed by some pumpkin. ( He won't eat the pumpkin unless he sees me eat a spoonful first). Usually cleared it up fairly quickly.
Does he act normal. Or does he act like his stomach is upset.

Do you have a thermometer where you can check his temperature. Is he drinking fluids

No I don't but I've read on how to check their temp without one and he feels fine. And he has had plenty of water

Hope he gets to feeling better. Stress or maybe just an upset stomach can cause him to breathe heavy, as long as my dog was acting normal and drinking with no temperature I would give it some time today and if he was acting the same tomorrow I'd call my vet.

Withhold food for 12 to 24 hours (12 hours if pup) making sure to offer water so dehydration won't occur. You can use Children's unflavored Pedialyte (a liquid) to replenish electrolytes if diarrhea or vomiting is bad or you think he's getting dehydrated.

Then feed several small meals per day:
Boneless, skinless chicken or turkey breast (you can get ground turkey breast at the store) boiled, rinsed and drained. Over cook the rice with more water than the recipe calls for. Shred chicken, add over cooked rice and a couple of table spoons of PLAIN canned pumpkin (per meal), mix and feed. Chicken/Turkey and rice should be a 50/50 mix.

When you feel this has passed, slowly begin to add his regular food.

Did you get a new bag of food in the last day or so? Sometimes they just go bad!

Also consider seeing a vet if the heavy panting does not subside.

Cdwoodcox, Chase is definitely acting his normal self. He was a "bad dog" cause he pooped on my bed (that's when I realized he had diarrhea) something we do when after he has been the "time out zone" (get no attention or treats for a while) is I'll ask him "You know what you did was wrong" he'll give me a paw like saying yes I'm sorry mom then I'll say promise you won't do it again and he'll give me his paw again
