I found this on a website. Explains the hair loss, she's losing nutrients
due to cronic diarrhea. So that is a secondary condition.

Chronic diarrhea is an important sign of intestinal disease in the dog. Persistent diarrhea can lead to weight loss from poor digestion and loss of important nutrients. Chronic diarrhea can lead to loss of body condition, development of a poor hair coat, and may also affect appetite and activity levels.

Thanks! I came home from work today(was at work for 6 hours) and she had pooed in her crate, again. It's solid this time though, with only a little bit of liquid. Her activity level is up(she was jumping and running and very alert). I'm going to give her a small bit of boiled rice and chicken tonight, and wait and see if that helps.

Lola is showing some of these same signs....
She is shedding like MAD and has very loose stool. I am calling the rescue Monday morning to see how long she has
had loose stool. Im worried about her, especially since she
has all those pups.

Justice had really runny poo again this morning. It was all over her kennel, her, the wall, and the carpet. :( I guess it's more pepto for her.

Oh my gosh, I know how frustrating times like this are.You clean the poo,cage, walls and rugs to come back a few hours later to find it had happened again and it does get old after awhile.Keep giving the pepto.You should be able to call the vet and ask for meds.Buster was put on something ( sorry brain fart and dont remember what it is called ) one pill a day and with in a few days his poo was back to normal.I got the meds with out having to take him in and spend lots of $$$$ so maybe you could try that.Also give cheese.Cheese will help get her back to pooing solid again.I really feel for you guys.You are probably pulling your hair out by now having to deal with this.Hopefully it ends soon.

TIP~ Move out the crate and throw down trash bags then put the crate on top of the trash bags this way if the poo over flows or splats it is not on your floors but the trash bags.You can even tape trash bags along the wall were the crate is to protect the wall and then just throw the bags out.Less scrubbing on your part.

Good luck and keep us updated on her.

Justice could have just an intestinal bug that would clear up with an antibiotic.
Another thing to consider and I am not wanting to cause panic but do want you
to make your vet aware of is that Justice is eating Diamond food. I know that it
was not the Lamb & Rice that was recalled but you never know. I looked up the
symptoms and this is what it said:

If your pet is showing any symptoms of illness, including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, yellowish tint to the eyes and/or gums, and severe or bloody diarrhea, please consult your veterinarian immediately.
Look Justice over and see if she is suffering from any of these other symptoms
Sure hope she just has a bug.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

Pat, Justice's symptoms are diarrhea and hairloss. She hasn't thrown up lately. She's not acting lethargic, or sluggish, and has no problem eating. There's no yellowish tint to her eyes or gums, and her diarrhea isn't bloody. I'm going to call the emergency vet and see what they suggest.

They told me to stop giving her the Pepto, and bring her in if she starts to act lethargic, or vomits. Otherwise, I'm supposed to talk to my vet about it on Thursday when they have their appt.

Glad she does not have the diamond food symptoms. If they do not want you to
give her the Pepto what did they suggest you could do until your appointment.
At least give her some Pedyalite to keep system in order and maybe some canned
or fresh chicken broth for liquid to help keep her from getting dehydrated.
Give her hugs. Thursday sure does seem a long time away.

Well she had diarrhea again this morning. Poor thing! I called and had her vet appt bumped up to today at 10 am. That's less than 2 hours. I'm not going to have a stool sample for her though :(

Even though Justice was wormed before we got her, she has hookworms. The vet gave us a dewormer for her and Haus(he didn't have any). She also got an antibiotic to help get her intestinal bacteria under control. I'm supposed to take her back in in a month to have them check her again.
