Thread: Our Puppy!!!

  1. #1

    Default Our Puppy!!!

    DF and I got our puppy this afternoon. We decided to go for a Cavalier X Cavoodle and she is adorable!!!

    We have named her Poppy and so far she has only had one accident inside.

    She ate her dinner happily and has been snoozing at our feet ever since.

    She loves to be next to us, or where we are!

    We took her outside before as the breeeder said she usually has a poo around this time and she was dragging her back end on the concrete.

    Is this is sign of worms? She was wormed on the 22/01/10.

    Oh and she didnt poo either so am taking her back out in half an hour!

    ooooh i love the name !
    she sounds so cute do you have any pics?!

    ... my cat, her name is actually Little Pop, named after her mum - Poppy! .. she used use to do that bum sliding thing when she was pregnant , cause she couldn't get past her belly to clean herself , but not sure what it is with your poppy .

    congrats on your new pup! X

    Could be worms still, could be anal gland probelms, could be a vaginal/vulva infection, could be a number of things...

    What product/drug was she wormed with on the 22nd? If she truly was??? No offence to your breeder, but a lot of ppl say they do things and don't even bother. Makes me sick, but it is true on occasion.

    So what should I do about it? I am pretty sure the breeder would of actually wormed her. I forget wha drug she used but she reccomended for us to use Advocat from now on as she is 8 weeks old! She seemed to know her stuff when it came to worming/fleas etc etc and seemed to truly love her puppies.

    have you checked her faeces? Obviously she's got to do one for you to heck it, but I would certainly be checking the next couple of poos she does for worms/eggs etc - JUST IN CASE.

    Have a look at her anus. Is it red, swollen or inflamed in any way? Is there anything you can see that doesn't look entirely 'normal'?

    If she does it again, or repeatedly keeps doing it, I would be taking her in for a check-up by your vet. If that does eventuate, you could also take a faecal sample with you too.

    Thanks DA. She has yet to poo for me (see related Q in other thread! Haha) but next one she does I will check. Will I know worms/eggs if I see them? What will they look like?

    She has only dragged her bottom twice while outside and twice while inside. Will have a peak at her bottom bits and see if they look red too!

    Thanks again for the advice!

    So she got to her new home about 7 pm, and she has so far done the boot-scooting act four times?

    Something's wrong!

    Check her out and see what you can see. Don't be afraid to look! lol.

    Worms/eggs. Good torch, or better yet pick up the faece in a bag, napkin, and take it into good light. if the faece is fairly solid, poke something in it to break it up a bit so you can see the inside so to speak. You should spot what they look like if it's enough to make her drag her arse, anyway. Can't imagine it if the breeder wormed her with a good reliable worming product, but one never knows.

    Aw God, I am just not getting away from discussing dog's crap lately am I?

    Aww no! I don't want anything to be wrong with her just yet!!!

    The breeder emailed me photos of her Mummy and Daddy and thanked us for giving her a great home. She also asked that we update her on how Poppy grows and said that we were welcome to ask any Q's via phone or email. So in my reply to her I mentioned the bottom dragging thing!

    Will have a good look in the light tomorrow! She is sleeping now and was not too impressed when I took her out to go toilet!

    Just out of curiosity, how did you choose this breeder, and I take it you didn't actually meet the parents of these puppies. How did you choose your puppy? Was it with its mother?
