This is a very serious condition indicating that your cavy's digestive system is not healthy, this can be an outcome of eating bacterias due to moldy food, grass or hay, or using an improper antibiotic. Please always change your cavy's old food to fresh ones, make sure to wash their food bowls and water bottles bacterias can formed and they can get sick very easy. Always check with your vet which antibiotics are safe to use with your cavy.

There are some meds available for diarrhea, but they only work in some cases, and it's difficult to get the doses right so it only helps solidify the poos, rather than making them too hard. Stress can cause diarrhea, and it's hard to tell what's stressing the piggies. Sometimes moving them to another location helps with the stress, if that's what's causing the problem.
