I have a 7 month old sprocker spaniel and we have been having trouble with random diarrhea for over 2 months. It is usually at night, with her scratching to be let out 2-3 times a night and the poo being very watery. When it first started the vet said it might be because she's excitable (well how are you supposed to stop that), so we had pro biotics and changed her food to hypo allergenic. It continued to be a bit on and off, and was usually at night or when left in the evening for a few hours. She stayed with my Mum for 2 weeks whilst we went on holiday and there was no problems (ny mum has two other dogs), however the first two nights after being home she has had us up 3 times a night with diahhrea. This week has been pretty sloppy in the evenings, and then today, she was left at 7am (as usual) and when she was let out at lunch time she had had diahhrea 3 times in her crate!! Any help would be amazing please. All food, and time being left alone has been exactly the same as when she was staying at my Mums house! I've spoken to the vet and we are going to try stool samples, but any other suggestions would be brilliant, we dont know what to do with our baby!!

When was the last time she was dewormed? The vet considers her otherwise healthy?

If it's not worms or an illness, I'd try a strict diet of a limited ingredient food, and if she does well on that, gradually re-add other ingredients until you find something that upsets her digestion. If she doesn't do well on it, try a limited ingredient food that has a different protein/carb combo and try again.

Before you try anything else, have the vet clear her of parasites and other medical issues.

Do you watch her when she is outside? Could she possibly be getting into some sort of plant that is causing the upset that is in your yard but not in your mothers? It's also not unusual for puppies that age to eat things that they really shouldn't which would cause upset.

After the vet clears her and if she's still having loose stools there's a powdered supplement we've used for our two girls that works wonders. It's called Perfect Form by Honest Kitchen. Both Rosie and Gracie have very sensitive stomachs and I was at my wits end until the groomer suggested we try it. Works great.
