Loose stool

Say I was wondering if anyone would know why my 6 yr old BLF would be having loose stool. Nothing has changed in her diet nor have I changed dog food brand (pedigree adult). It just really soft, cow pies. It makes me concerned. I haven't seen much change in her attitude. It has been going on about 5-7 days now. She has went swimming during that time wondering if you think its just a parasite she might have swallowed.

Thanks for the help!!!

It could be giardia. If it gets worse you may have to treat it. The first thing you could try is get some probiotics from a vet supply or health food store or try plain yogurt from the natural section of your grocery store.
Giardia is a parasite that is common in Wisconsin in water that causes diarrhea. Most vets can do a test for it. As far as brands, if you have a health food store or health food section in your grocery look there or use plain Dannon. Where are you in Wisconsin?
