Okay, this is a bit frustrating. I don't know if it's something I did or he maybe just got meat (or something else) that caused upset, but he's had liquid to soft stool for the past three days, sometimes having multiple accidents in the apartment in a day in addition to going for some poops outside. I've stopped all other meat and I've been feeding him chicken necks or backs with skin and fat removed. I did give a little pumpkin, but so far not really noticing any difference so I've stuck to just the necks. Some of the stools are mucous-y, and they all smell absolutely horrible.
I can't tell if he's got a temperature or not, but his gums are still pink, he doesn't seem to be that much more thirsty than normal, he's been playing and eating and generally acting normal (if not a little mopey sometimes).
I don't know if he's gotten a parasite or what, or if I should fast and then keep feeding bone-in meals, or should I take him in and have a fecal done? I'm kind of wringing my hands here because if I have to take him in, I'm worried one of the vets will blame the diet He's not really an active pup in general so I've tried decreasing his portions a little without fasting him, but someone mentioned in another group that they had the back and forth soft/liquid stool and it turned out to be some sort of worms, even though she never saw other evidence.
I have to go to the clinic tomorrow to get my pay, and I'll bring him if he should go, but it's an expense I hope to avoid right now, so if there are other suggestions, please help
