Yes, I know just what you mean. One of my Mini boys has a very sensitive tummy (the other doesn't have as much of a problem with it, which seems odd because they're littermates.) Once in awhile he'll get a little bout of diarrhea for no apparent reason -- no change in diet, eating something he shouldn't, etc. We've had all the tests done, and the vet said he is a healthy boy.
I have had great success in giving canned pumpkin, which can help firm up loose stools, and also helps with constipation, as well. Make sure to get plain pureed pumpkin, not the pie filling. Just add a dollop to the top of his food at each meal. When their tummies are upset, I always put the dogs on a bland diet for a couple of days until things clear up, just giving them plain rice with cottage cheese or plain whole milk yogurt, plus a little of the pumpkin. Usually does the trick.
Since his last episode, I have put both dogs on a nice, balanced, all natural homemade diet -- no more kibble. With all the recalls, you just never know if there is something in there that could harm your pets, and I'm not taking chances anymore. Seems to be going well so far; their digestion has improved, their coats are shinier, and their allergies seem better. I frequently refer to the book "Home Cooking for a Healthy Dog" by Jonna Anne, to make sure that I am providing proper nutrition in the meals I make.
Best of luck to you and Marco! Hope his little belly feels better!

You'll have to let us know how the first class goes.
