*Every dog has an upset stomach at some point. It is the most common thing that you can run in to with a puppy, and there are thousands of possible causes… So it’s no wonder why pet parents are often on the hunt for a cure. It can be very easy to resolve if taken care of quickly & correct, or it can be distressing and messy, to say the least! It can take anywhere from hours to get a puppy back on track or as long as months depending on the cause & how the problem has been handled. If you have changed your baby's food numerous times, tried different medicines and treatments, are using toxic products, have over or under dewormed, you have most likely have added to the amount of time it will take to get back on track.  I ask that you please read all of the information that I have you in the learning center, preparing for your pup tab, & how to purchase tab. This is here for you! Asking your breeder to fix a problem when you haven't followed any of our recomendations seems a little silly.  It is so very hard to help fix a problem when I am not with you raising your baby. You can prevent these problems!

 

*We highly suggest keeping your puppy on the products that we recommended to all buyers at the time of purchase. We have been doing this a very long time and know what our breed does best on. Changing your puppies food before they turn about 8 months old is something that  we 100% do not recommend, and we make buyers all aware of this. Sometimes pet owners first instinct is to change the food if they get an upset stomach, don't do this. Just like humans, it is normal to get loose stool here & there.

 

* For the first month, please only feed your baby his or her food (you can even give your baby a piece of their food as a treat). After about a month you can gradually begin adding our recomended treats to their diet as long as their bellies are ready. 

 

 *Do research on these products that you use and see what the side effects are. The main side effect in many toxic products is diarrhea. We ask that buyers keep toxic products away from their puppies.

 

*Make sure you arent feeding your baby more than 1 cup at each meal (more will be too much to digest). 

 

*If your puppy is having diarrhea, there's no reason to panic unless the problem is very severe. However, you should watch your pup carefully and if the problem doesn't resolve or progress within one or two days, you should make an appointment with your pet's veterinarian. If you know that your baby got into something tell your Vet! Young puppies can become dangerously dehydrated in 24 hours or less. Make sure your dog is getting plenty of water (electrolytes are great to add to water)! If your dog is lethargic, feverish, bloated, vomiting or has a large amount of blood in this stool or in his vomit, you need to consult your Vet!
 

**Home Care for Mild Diarrhea**
If your puppy is having some mild diarrhea but is otherwise playful & energetic, you can start by:
1. Adding Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) to your puppy or dogs food. You will mix about 1 tsp to their food for 7 days straight.  You can order DE from chewy.com. If the diarrhea does not progress within a day or worsens, proceed to step 2.

2. If the diarrhea does not start to improve or gets worse, take your baby to the vet, and bring a small stool sample with you to test for worms  & parasites. If the test is positive your vet will worm your baby. If the test is negative move to step 3. Also be aware that false negatives occur quite often, it is always good to have them test again.

3. If your babies test comes back negative, ask your Vet to prescribe Tylosin (brand name: Tylan). Tylosin is an an antibiotic primarily used for dogs and cats to treat diarrhea and inflammation and should solve the problem fast. 

 

There are MANY reasons to why your dog may have diarrhea but here are some common causes:
Stress
Change in diet
Parasites
Viral infection
Bacterial infection
Ingestion of garbage, toxins, or foreign object
Food intolerance

Using toxic cleaners

Using toxic flea & tick products
