    We call this " loose stoll".

    Sometimes it means nothing.It sounds like her stomach is reacting to the wormer,or she is dehydrated.You could also be dealing with cocci.But I highly doubt it.

    My experience with loose stool:My hen Banshee was going threw this.She ate,but was EXTREMELY low on water.I brung her in,sat her on my desk,and gave her water.Did she drink every last drop?,yes!A day after that,she had nice round sized poop,and,whenever I bring her in,I can clean it easily.

    Hope things change!
