Unless you gave him blueberries or prunes I'd probably call your health care practitioner. Tarry stools can mean blood in the stool. Blueberries and prunes can both create the look of very dark stools though.

In a grown-up, black tarry is a liver complaint, usually...Get him checked, just to make sure.
