Hi Susan, You should talk to your vet's office to see what they think, but I don't think you need to rush Autumn in right away. Having dealt with diarrhea with Ember, my first course of action would be to rest her from food for a day or two, if possible. Make sure she has plenty of water, of course. After the short break, I would increase portions until normal over a few days. If you don't want to give her time off of food, then you might at least take her off the hard food for the time being, and then slowly reintroduce it over a week or so. You might also try giving her some pumpkin. I think a teaspoon of pumpkin mixed in with wet food is what I did for Ember when she had bad diarrhea.
Keep in mind that this is what *I* would do. Your vet may have a better idea of what's best for little Autumn. I hope she starts feeling better soon.
