How is he today? Just wondering. All the above advice is good, but I think a vet visit is best. He could have giardia (sp?) that is NOT caught with a regular worming. It needs special medication. It is a type of protozoan parasite from unclean conditions, water near ponds, etc. My Bonnie had it when she came home. She had been 'wormed' several times. I think it is carried by beavers, skunks, and others.

He's a lot better today. The poo has been more firm and he's had tons of energy. I'm not sure where he could have got something like that. He avoids water on walks, we don't have much wildlife and he hadn't been on a walk for a couple of days before hand because he refuses to walk in the rain. If he's improving, do you still think he needs to go to the vet? Thanks

So glad he seems better. If it was me I would still be tempted to take a sample for the vet to test just for piece of mind.

I'm so glad he's better right now. But from personal experience, my chi would always start getting sick again at night or on the weekend when the vets were closed. I don't have the money to pay for emergency vet service. I know money is tight, but if there is something going on with Mylo, the longer you wait, the more it may cost to get the problem resolved. I would take a stool sample & have it tested for peace of mind. Hopefully, it was just an upset stomach.
