hello there,
I always worry about young dogs with diarrhoea, as they can very quickly get quite sick when they are little. It may be just the diet change causing the diarrhoea, but that would be unlikely to cause a nasal discharge. I would suggest taking him to your closest vet for a check up. Has he been vaccinated? Do you get parvovirus in your area?
Sorry I can't be of any more help. I don't want to give you bad advice and I think this is something that does need to be checked by your vet.
