    I am suggesting that that should be a feeding regime for a normal healthy pup. If you've been overfeeding it might also explain her illness.

    I have now fed her as I wanted to see if it would stay down. Poor thing was starving and she wolfed it down and has been playing lovely.

    I obviously wouldn't starve my puppy unless instructed to Occy.

    Just keep an eye on her and
    keep in touch with the vet.
    I do have a feeling that it's nothing serious and she'll be back to normal in a few days.

    Thanks Magdalena, Jenna has been so playful this afternoon I'm optimistic the diarrhea isn't too serious. I won't relax until I see a nice solid poo though. Who thought poo could be something to celebrate

    Yeah, i know what you mean. When Misi was ill a couple of weeks ago and she did her 1st solid poo after a week i clapped-she was all excited and looked very proud of herself
    Glad Jenna's playful and happy-very good sign

    Hey Tkay, hows the little one doing today?

    I guessing was excitment, nerves and the drontal tablet combined. First day we bought Leo home he had a drontal tablet before we took him. Got him home, very happy playfull pup then within a few hours, big watery mess on lounge room floor! He was still eating/drinking and was very much ok in himself and was back to normal bowl movments the following day. Must be something with those drontal tablets and over excited puppy tummys!

    Hi

    Jenna is a little better I think. I phoned the vet yesterday as she was still producing very soft poos. She has given her some pink medicine called Peptosyl, I remember Holly having that when she was ill. Smells disgusting but Jenna takes it quite well. I got quite excited this morning because she produced her 1st poo that was actually in little logs,(lovely subject eh?) still soft but definitely more formed. Unfortunately though half an hour later she did another one and it was back to being runny again. Oh well, I'll persevere with the yucky pink stuff and the vet wants to see her if she hasn't improved by Friday.

    The internet is a mixed blessing, though, I've been googling puppy diarrhea and there's some scary stuff out there. Something a bit spooky happened. There was a posting on another forum about liver shunts and how this lady's dog nearly died because she was miss diagnosed. Anyway the spooky thing was that the poster's name was Tkay, just like mine! Freaked me out a bit. I hope it wasn't a sign

    Jenna is eating well though and playful so I'm still hoping it will all just settle down soon.

    Thanks for caring, I will keep you posted.

    Oh, no! Don't think that it was a sign.
    Like you said she's a little better, shes on meds now and I'm sure she'll be back to normal soon. Just takes a while sometimes.

    The internet can be bad for things like that. I wouldn't try to work it out via the internet, Tkay... Just follow what your vet says and she should be fine.

    Oh, and Occy wasn't suggesting that you should or would starve your puppy.

    Have you let her "breeder" know whats going on?
