I wouldn't use yoghurt myself, dairy is known to cause diarrhoea, so unless you know he tolerates it well, I wouldn't risk it. The good stuff found in the yoghurt is available from health food shops, ask for probiotics.
How many meals are you feeding? Like Velma says, several tiny meals are the key. If you can't get canned pumpkin, use fresh and boil/mash it. Butternut squash is an easily available alternative, any fibrous veg (not green/leafy)in a tiny quantity will work. I think vets on monday if he isn't fully recovered.
When was he last wormed? Worms and worming medication can both cause diarrhoea. Just a thought.

I would personally go vets, I have no experience with puppy illness but I think for peace of mind I'd go vets, Teddy had bad worms I de-wormed him and he didn't seem any better so I went to vets and am so relieved I did as I now have piece of mind for the sake of the 30 consultation fee

Thanks. Is it any type of probiotic I need? I'm feeding roughly 4 small meals per day. I'll have a look for canned pumpkin, if I can't find any ill check out fresh like you said. How much should I give?

He was last wormed about 3 weeks ago as vets said to worm every 2 weeks until 6 months old and he was 6 months 2 or 3 weeks ago.

Thanks for your advice everyone.

maybe its a diet change thats making his stools loose. have they been like that the whole time he's been on the boiled chicken? maybe chicken doesnt agree with him ...
what food was he on when his stools were normal ? maybe you should try going back to that food ....

( i didnt read your other thread .... but this was just a thought so thought i'd mention it , cause my Tootsie has allergies to chicken )

Thanks for your suggestion Elaine. I put him on the rice and boiled chicken because he was up with really bad diarrhoea every hour Monday night. He's improved considerably since then but isn't back to normal yet. He's had cooked chicken and raw chicken without problems in the past so I don't think it's that. He was on ZP before but I don't know what caused him to become ill. Willow also seemed to lose her appetite on Monday but other than that has been completely normal.

Unfortunately I don't have a Waitrose anywhere near me I've got some squash so hopefully that will help. Nice to see you back heartagram. I got probio7, it says to take 1 to 2 capsules per day. Each capsule is 500mg. How much should I give Mylo? He weighs roughly 3kg and is 6.5months old. Thanks

Sorry Mylo isn't much better I've not personally experienced this kind of thing before so can't offer any help I'm afraid but I really hope he gets back to normal soon xx
