Agreed, take her to the vet soon. They will take a fecal sample, rule out anything serious (such as parvo) and maybe give meds and a prescription diet. You want to stop the runs quick, not only to avoid dehydration but also because you don’t want her to get accustomed to going potty in her crate. Until her stool becomes normal, can you confine her in a small bathroom or area with her crate door open and the floor covered with piddle pads or newspaper, so that she has another option in case she is unable to control herself? And finally, the recipe for stopping the runs is WHITE rice and cooked chicken. The rice should be overcooked, almost to the consistency of library paste. Feed until her stools are firm for 24 hrs. You can also add a little canned unsweetened pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix) to help normalize her stools - how much would depend on her size. Good luck!
