Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Poor sick Puppy :(   Mon Jul 30, 2012 10:36 am

This weekend, I think that Neeka is not feeling good again Sad It started off Saturday when she would growl when we touched her tummy or when we picked her up (in her stomach area). Yesterday she started having looser stools. They have always been soft. Now it is full fledged diarreah! Poor thing. I got her from the crate this morning and she had an accident. I had to give her a bath this morning because the runny crap was all over her fur

I am not fond of the food that the breeder had her on - Natural Choice Puppy. I kept her on it for a bit until she got acclimated to her new surrondings. I think that she is way overdue for a food change! Just bought TOTW Pacific Stream for her yesterday. I certainly hope that it does the trick.

If she's just now having a reaction to the food it may be something else that's triggering the runs. I'd get a stool sample just in case and take it in.

It started before the food change, I have held back on offering more of the TOTW. She has barely had any of it. If not better by this evening, I plan to take a sample in to see what is up Sad

Is she updated on her vaccines? Puppys get vaccinated at 6 wks, 9 wks, and 12 wks. For me, it's $75 per vaccination. Call around for prices in your area. If she's not up-to-date, I would take her in to get vaccinated, and get a stool sample while you're there (I don't know how old your pup is). She might have Giardia.

She could also be stressed/nervous about her new home! It took Juneau around 2-3 weeks before she was having normal stools.

Good luck. Smile

She is a tad bit behind. The breeder's vet wouldn't start vac's until 8 weeks.

She has had her first at the breeder
Second on July 24th - yes it cost me about $75 Sad
Third is scheduled for Aug 14th

I'll snag a sample after work and get it to the vet ASAP

That's a crazy price.

My vet does not condone 6 week old vaccinations, too many antibodies. We got Catos at 9 & 12. Then he got his Rabies at 4 months.

That sounds more like our schedule Smile first were at 8, second at 11.

Our second set of shots also cost $75. However, the first set cost the breeder about $35 in Indiana. Vets in our area are on the pricey side Sad

Most states require 1st rabies at 4 months, that's why vet's do it then, also all the dogs I have owned (when I get health records, some rescues I had no idea) have always had the first set of shots at the breeders somewhere between 6-8 weeks. Megan you go to a holistic vet right? They are probably way more cautious, and probably with good reason!

Last night she seemed to be doing much better. This morning she had nice firm poo. So I upped the amount ot the TOTW in her food mix. Hopefully it keeps going well.
