Nasty experience.
but did learn that Immodium will work.
100 dog got 2 Immodium ( generic brand) in am
2 in pm and then one in am.
Stopped the diarrhea.

As for the pills...
Dropping it down his throat, aiming for base of tongue, and then gently holding his mouth closed and saying "swallo"
followed by a small bit of biscuit treat works well for our guy.
I worked with him early on to let me mess with his mouth, and open on command.

If your dog won't let you drop the pill into her open throat. can you crush it and mix it in with a bite of food?
If she knows you are going to give her several bites of food, she will gulp them down to be ready for the next one.
