Always a good thing to call the Vet.

I am thinking because it is an antbiotic,it is upsetting the dog's stomach.
Does it to some Humans too!

Administer with food if the Vet says it's OK.

You might try canned pumpkin, not pie mix, but pure pumpkin. I give my 50lb and 65lb dogs a couple tablespoons when they have runny stools.

Our two get steamed sweet potato and rice with their kibble. Karma was prescribed higher fiber by the vet because of some bloodwork that showed pancreatitis. So Karma gets about 1/4 cup each meal (she's a big girl). I give a heaping teaspoon of it to 14-week old Teddy too, mostly out of selfishness. He's a little guy and they always have runny stools from time to time. But not Teddy. His are award winners!
