    I'd vote for the worming tablet. Frosty only gets those once every three months. Every month, she gets the flea stuff with no adverse reaction (Frontline anyway) apart from disliking the initial cold blast to the back of the neck. The worming tablet - always gets weird poo for the next 12 to 24 hours.

    you could try keeping a diary of what you've been feeding, when the wormers are, and the flea treatment and the vaccinations etc and how your dog is each day - to see if there are any patterns.

    You've only had her two days, combine that with worming tablets etc then there is your answer to everything IMO.

    I like the idea of the food diary! Will do that!

    yeah jade has soft pooh and smelly second day, we took her to the vet and they said it was most likely to be an upset tummy missing her mum and brother's and sister's.

    This should probably go into a thread of it's own since there are a few novice dog owners on the forum at the moment.

    But here are a few tips for the first 5 days or so of pups life in their new home.

    Keep the diet plain. Don't alter it from what they are used to.
    Expect puppy will miss their litter mates. Mum is not as important as you might think but their siblings are.
    Do not bring over every Aunt, cousin or friend to see the new puppy. Save that for week two.
    Keep things routine, where the water bowl is etc.
    Don't overwhelm them with your attention, you will go back to school or work and then they will be left on their own - what then another new shock.
    Expect them to cry at night. Figure out a plan of what you will do when it happens.
    Inform neighbours you have a new puppy.
    Expect them to have accidents in the home.
    There is a strong possibility of runny motions.
    Do not jamb new meds etc down puppies throat; your breeder should of supplied you with the info of when they need doing.
    If you notice worms etc in the poo, contact the breeder as they will firstly want to advise the other puppy owners and will be able to tell you what they have been using.
    Do not jamb a collar and lead on them and expect them to walk around the neighbourhood.
    Do not take them to other peoples houses for the first couple of days, let them get used to their own first.
    Do take them for short car rides after about day 3. Take a towel and have someone hold puppy.

    There are a whole heap of other things in my puppy packs but my computer times out. So I hope this helps any novice owners. And if needs be feel free to move this post.

    So Poppy had only water on her last meal and had a poo outside before. It was nice and firm! (who thort I would ever be so happy over a puppies poo! Haha!)

    AND...her belly looks not as bloated as it was when I got her home! She has a bit of loose puppy skin around it now when she is rolling around which I hadn't noticed before!

    She is still scratching a bit tho...I guess its to do with being bathed every 4 days!

    Hi Amy86

    I guess you could expect an itch like that to maybe last as long as a mozzie bite - for me thats between 3 and 10 days (a bit allergic). Have you got anything soothing and dog friendly to stick on it, like aloe vera out of the cactus leaf, or maybe yogurt (although she's bound to lick that off which won't help much). Or maybe just a warm face washer or rag to the bottom for a couple of minutes, if she will let you. Or a cold one. Or just wait.

    Yeh, its more of an all over thing. Like a scratch here and a munch on her foot/tail/thigh there. Not a constant thing at all.
