Thread: Puppy Poo's...

    Ok thanks!

    All the talk of the horrible horrible person who bred my pup has honestly made me paranoid that she is going to get (or already has) some terrible ailment and die!

    Silly I know but its how I feel! I wish I could just relax and know she will be ok!

    Well I suggest you get her examined at her next vaccination to ease your mind. You know in your head she's okay, you just need that reassurance.

    Yeh, your right! I booked her in today at our local vet for her next vac. Also got a worming tablet and flea med and booked her into Puppy Pre-School. And the vet nurse said she will get a health check at her next vac appt!

    Did you take her to the vet today - you said something about going back for vaccination boosters and checkup soon. For the first 12 to 24 hours after a worming tablet - the poo can be a little strange - even if you can't see anything that looks like worms.

    Regular cows milk can be bad for dogs. But yogurt is ok - a couple of dessert spoons a day or so - because the stuff that upsets a dog in the cows milk is converted to something else more tummy friendly in yogurt. Pretty sure puppy milk is for puppies and not the same as cows milk.

    I found my puppy was getting tummy upsets every couple of weeks for several days at a time which involved a short fast (longer as she got older) - which she really objected to and then a diet of chicken and rice for the next few meals. Which was a PITA. I used to get whole chicken, cook up a batch of rice and measure it out into little containers (you can get from the supermarket) and freeze.

    Eventually - I changed brand of dry food and the tummy upsets went away - I was astounded. The only ones we've had since are when I *know* she's eaten something really bad.

    Yes they do breath faster.



    My two week old litter of pups had the runs on Friday after their mother dug up an old bone. I just had to let them keep up the fluids and keep cleaning up until it passed thru the milk. I had to keep pinching the skin on the backs of their necks to make sure they were hydrated.

    For an older pup a day here or there of the runs is ok. So don't panic, puppy is still settling in.

    I did take her to the vet. Booked her in for her 2nd vac, had her weighed, got a worming tablet and some flea spot on meds. The vet nurse said she will get a full health check with her next vac appt.

    We have been giving her puppy milk on her dry food but might lay off it and just put water on her dry food.

    There was heaps of grass in her poo! Espesh the 2nd little bit she just did on the carpet! It was def runny and almost all grass!

    No-one was meaning to make you believe that your puppy is going to die. We were trying to explain to you why we believe that the person you bought from was irresponsible. You will know if something is wrong, and you will take your girl to the vet if there is something wrong.

    Thanks! I do know this...I do! I know I am being silly and paranoid! Just am worried about her! She is still happy and playing and wagging her tail so that reassures me!

    So if she's had the worming tablet, all the poo and grass eating would be consistent with the tummy burbling discomfort that would cause but it shouldn't last very long.

    If the odd poos and extra grass eating happenned before that, then it's something she ate which hopefully will work itself out and you would have been able to discuss details with the vet? Frosty's poos this morning - included daggy bits from eating long bits of grass but them not being chopped into small bits. Some other poos I found suggested she'd swallowed some fairly big bits of stick - unusual for her - she mostly spits stick bits out then again if she was really hungry... so she would have eaten the grass because her tummy didn't like the sticks and sure enough it's all out now.

    Bleah.

    I always pay attention to her number 2s - because that's how I know she's ok (or not). And if I should happen to pick up after someone else - I hand them the bag with their dog's stuff so they can check if they want (and to remind them they should pay more attention to what their dog is doing).
