14 week old puppy tummy.

Post by KMack02 on Sat Apr 25 2015, 21:54

Pepper has been with us 2 weeks now and is settling in beautifully, but on Wednesday we noticed her stools were quite loose, no change in routine, diet or excersise so we kept an eye on her, made sure she kept her fluids up and by Thursday afternoon all was back to normal.

Today her stools have been loose again and this morning she was off her food but has since regained her appetite, and I'm just wondering what's the best way to handle the runs and at what point should I be concerned?

We brought her home at 12 weeks and on the advice of the vet she had her first vaccination 2 Wednesday ago and he wants to split her 2nd one so we can get her out socialising quicker due to nervousness around other dogs. Could it be the vaccination itself causing it?

She's fine in herself, still playful and alert

It could possibly be the vaccination.. when Zeus had his, he lost his appetite for a day or two and his poo was runny.

Keep an eye on it, if its the same after a few more days, I'd go to the vets just to be sure everythings OK.
