I have an 11 month old lab who is having an ongoing problem with getting diarrhea and having accidents in her crate during the day. We notice that it seems to be happening a few days after we take her to the local dog park. She plays in the small stream with other dogs and the only thing we can think of is that the water makes her sick......? Any help/advice if you have had similar situations or know good ways to prevent this kind of thing and remedy the diarrhea quickly would be greatly appreciated.
I would think that with a recurring diarrhea problem she should be vet checked for giardia or some similar issue. Rather than just guess that the stream is a problem - eliminate that as a cause.

Thanks for the help. The vet gave us some antibiotics and they have definitely helped. Giardia or some bacteria definitely seems to fit the symptoms so we will have to keep an eye on that and try to avoid places where she can pick it up.
How long has this been happening? Have you brought a stool sample to the vet to get checked?
