More than likely it is due to stress of moving to new location. However, there are many other reasons for loose stools. Parasites, particular foods, change in diet, etc can all cause this issue. I would wait a little longer and if it continues, then I would talk to your vet about running a fecal exam to verify.

I agree with Brad. How long has it been since he moved to your home?

What brad said, but this belongs in the general discussion forum. I'll try moving it over.

No need to be sorry. I would go another week personally and then seek vet advice. What does its diet consist of?

i would offer to do a free fecal exam, however with the heat and USPS being so slow lately the last several ones I have recieved were too dried out. So while my offer is still up to run a fecal exam for anyone on the forum, I highly doubt it will work very well due to the heat of the summer.

my male northern had the runs when we first got him and he was chock full of pinworms. Although all of his poos were wierd until he finished getting treated.
