Dark runny stool
I am really freaking out right now. Charlie started pooping very dark runny stool... I noticed a little bit this morning and just seen more on his potty pad. There was one small clump and the rest was watery. I started googling it and now I am scared something is wrong with him. It's 11pm.. no vets are open. Is there anything I should do for now?.. How do I know what could have caused this. He's still eating and is up like him normal self, just the stool that causes concern. He hasn't vomited and seems to feel fine.
Please go easy in your responses. Honest opinions without making me freak out into a panic, please. Thanks.

Hopefully someone will be able to share their experiences with you on what this could be specifically but I have this link bookmarked about what the different stool colors might mean.

I'd still take him into the vet as soon as possible to try to better pinpoint what's going on, especially if the dark loose stools persist. Please keep us updated. I hope that it is not anything serious and that Charlie is back to normal soon!

Hopefully, you are at the vet this am with your baby, and hopefully, he is feeling better and the dark stools are resolved. If it was me, I would have the vet check him out while they are open this am.....so you dont end up in the ER in the middle of the night.....
