Runny Stool 3 Days
I have a 5 month old Golden Retriever who has had SUPER runny stool for three days straight now. She is drinking, eating, acting fine. We changed her food about 3 weeks ago .. but did so gradually and didnt have a problem. Now .. she is pooing a lot .. and within an hour of eating. The norm is about 2-3 hours for her. Its so runny I cant pick it up. She was treated for a parasite at 3 months and then tested clear again at 4 mos. How long should I wait before taking her in? Is this normal?

Diarrhea isn't normal, no. Whether it's par for the course after treatment for a parasite or not, I am not sure. I've never experienced that problem.
Change of food can cause diarrhea, but like you said, if it's done gradually, usually there's no problem. Unless the new food really doesn't suit her...
I would take her in. Let the vet check her out. Don't know if it will be possible to take a stool sample?? Try. It might help with diagnosis (rather you than me! lol!)
I hope she is getting better soon.
