Alright, I need help here. To start with I called the vets office, closed till morning. So yes I will call first thing in the morning, they are pretty good at getting people in asap with emergency calls first thing in the mornings.
Bella has been laying around, and I noticed yesterday and today, her poo is loose and has a little bit of a jelly consistance to it. This has happened one other time, called the vets office told me to feed her ground chicken or turkey. This time it really bothers me. I did back the poo to take with me. Any other suggestions?
We finally got out and walked a 1/2 mile today. She ate all her supper, and she's been drinking water. This weekend both Sat and Sun my twin grand-daughters were here and it stresses her out. Would that be a sign of stress?
Thanks for any words of advice.

Personally I would never feed ground anything to my dogs unless I picked a whole cut of meat and had the butcher put it through the grinder. You can boil some chicken breast and mix it with some white rice to see if that helps bind her up between now and the morning. Jelly like consistency could be many things, and a vet visit is in order to get to the cause. In my experience, stress has not caused diarrhea to this extent. It concerns me that your dog is laying around. Check her gums - they should be pink and moist and not tacky to the touch.
