    DefaultHelp Needed

    Jordan is 15 weeks old. She has had diarrhea for two days now. I tried giving her plain rice with a little bit of dry dog food in it. But that doesn't seem to be helping. The only thing I can think of that might have caused it is a new type of treats. I read online lots of suggestions like yogurt, chicken, pepto bismol, and cottage cheese. I just have never heard of any of those things helping. I know she cant help it because she is going in her crate. She normally doesn't do that.

    Get her to the vet first thing tomorrow. Until then keep her hydrated. We open a tin of salmon or tuna (packed in water) and pour out the juice. We then dilute the juice with water. Sam loves it. Puppies/dogs get dehydrated really quickly.

    For food-I think I wouldn't give any tonight, just salmon or tuna water. If you don't have any of that, beef or chicken broth would probably do.

    She has been eating and drinking fine. She drank 3 bowls of water and she is acting normal.

    Any time my two have had not so great poops, I give them a spoonful or two of real pumpkin (NOT pie filling) with their food and it has taken care of it.

    Diarrhea for 2 days in a puppy needs a vet visit.

    When mine have loose stools, I use boiled ground chicken and white rice for a couple of days - usually works just fine.

    Aww I hope your pup feels better soon, definitly go to the vet. We had to with one of our dogs when they were 9 weeks and he ended up needing some antibotics for a week and it cleared up fairly quick.

    Take her to the vet to rule out any serious gastro-intestinal bugs. At that young age you don't want to take any chances.

    Could be coccidia or giardia or other parasites, in which case, need to be treated w/ drugs. ASAP. Good luck. Anne

    agreed. Lola and Gracie both have had coccidia. It clears up pretty quick with meds. Good luck

    Thank you for all the great advice! This morning her poop was perfectly normal. I just called the vet and they said to give her rice with her two meals today. If it comes back they want us to come in. They thought it was probably from trying the new treats.
