My three Yorkies are sick with diarrea. Which in it self I find concerning.
Does anyone have a medicine suggestion for little guys? Two of mine are only three pounds.
Any help is appreciate and thank you in advance.

It would be extremely dangerous to offer you advice on medications for such tiny dogs without knowing what is wrong or without any kind of medical history of your dogs. Your best bet would be to call your vet as it really could be anything from a deadly illness to a simple upset stomach.

Are they also vomiting? What is their energy level like? Do they have access to a yard, or could they have gotten into something inside?
The cure depends on the cause. For some causes, you want to make sure they 'poop out' whatever is causing the illness; for others, you want to treat to slow down passage of food through the intestine. Your best bet is to take them to see a vet--particularly since they are small dogs and can easily get dangerously dehydrated.
Don't try anything OTC unless you talk to a vet first--dosing such small dogs can be tricky.
Good luck with your pooches, Donna! :fingerscr you get the problem resolved quickly!

Trust me you don't want to mess around with toy dogs that have diarrhea or vomitting. A three pound dog can go downhill so fast it's scary. Get them to the vet asap.
