Morning everyone- my 5 month old cockapoo has been sick and had diarrhoea since yesterday lunchtime. I don't know what he's eaten- he's always picking things up from the floor when we're out for walks but I can't recall anything specific yesterday. Other than that he seems ok. Do you think I should take him to the vet? (He's my first dog and I'm not sure whether the vet would be able to do anything or you just have to wait for him to get it out of his system.) Thanks for any advice.

Hi Bunnyman,

Personally I'd get him to the vets as soon as possible as a precaution - especially as it has gone on since yesterday lunchtime.

The most important thing to be concerned about is dehydration - so ensure he is drinking water.

Thank you both for your advice. I just called the vet and they said there were some stomach bugs going around and I should keep an eye on him, feed him something like boiled chicken and rice and make sure he gets lots of water.
