Yes: It is common to have looser stools after getting a suppository and the initial constipation is resolved, particularly if you were giving her lots of fruit juice or water over the past few days in an effort to treat the constipation. Make sure that she is urinating and acting normally, and that there is no blood in her stool. Her stools should be back to normal within a few days. ...Read more

What does a stool of yellow watery mean? I've been fine stool wise all day, and have eaten normal healthy food

Something you ate: Didn't agree with you. A single stool of watery yellow has very little clinical significance. Colon transit time determines stool color and consistency. The faster the transit time, the more watery and lighter in color the stool. If the loose stools continue for more than 24 hours or if you see blood in stools you should seek medical attention.

I am experiencing runny stool of a bright yellow color and of a mucus consistency, and only happened today, the only things I've eaten is an omelette?

Mucus colitis: This mucus colitis may be due to a viral intestinal tract infection or a reaction/intolerance to something you ate. Since you don't have a history of recurrent episodes like this, I don't believe it's an irritable bowel syndrome flare up. Treatment is rest, intake of adequate fluids, avoidance of harsh roughage and taking kaopectate if needed to control troublesome diarrhea. See your MD as needed. ...Read more
