|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

|Subject: Puppy has the runs Thu May 15, 2014 5:43 am|| |
I've had Loki for 2 weeks now. He's 11 weeks old and since I got him he's had diarrhea. Had a fecal test done and put him on meds (which he's been on for the last week) and he hasn't gotten any better. He eats fine and is a lot more energetic than my other husky puppy Luna so I'm not too concerned but it is starting to get hotter and I'm worried about possible dehydration. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do. He's up to date on all his shots. Has been dewormed twice. I've had him on Blue Buffalo since I got him so I don't think it's the food but just in case I'm going to start transitioning him to a different kind. I'd be really appreciate any advice.

Did you increase his food shortly before this started happening? Too much can cause the runs, especially with a rich food like BB. Or...... did they just do a regular fecal? The regular ones don't test for giardia and coccidia, which are pretty common and cause the runs.

He eats a lot so I'm not sure if it is too much. The fecal test came back negative for everything except he did come back positive for giardia which is what the meds were treating.

If he came back positive for active giardia that's why you have a puppy with the runs. Be very careful as you can get giardia from your puppy! It goes without saying really that picking up and disinfecting the area he's gone in immediately. Wash all toys/bedding that could have possibly come into contact with poo. Once he's had giardia (or you, I speak from the most unfortunate experience) he's more prone to get it again...it actually never goes away, it just goes dormant in the system and can be reactivated by a small introduction of the giardia bacteria or even stress.

Thank you so much for your help. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if the meds do their work.
