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.

I would absolutely call the doctor, as PP said it could be blood in the stool.

Ditto previous.

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