Puppy diarrhea

When you dog was a puppy did it have diarrhea often? When did she outgrow if? Was it from food or parasites?

I checked "puppy had diarrhea". Hank was at the 24hr. vet clinic for diarrhea the weekend after we brought him home. No parasites were found but he was treated with meds. and recovered.

Our pups have picked up giardia at least once each, and sometimes they eat something in the woods that throws the system out of whack for a day or two. We've never had chronic, food-caused problems. One dog did have chronic giardia on and off as a puppy and finally got over it when he was about a year old.

Sasha had soft poo for a few weeks (never diarrhea) and we slowly changed food over to what Gunner eats and added pumpkin. His poo looks just like Gunner's now. : )
We had him checked at the vets and no parasites or worms.

Chester seemed to have on and off diarrhea for awhile but he outgrew it by the time he was around 5 months.

Roxy did have an intestinal bug around 5 months, but with a little TLC (and medication) it cleared rather quickly. She will get soft stool every now & then, and runny poop for a day if she eats something she shouldn't ::recalling Monday::

But she is recovered with firm poop again... tummy's can be sensative. Just write down the things your pup eats, so if he/she has an upset tummy - you can start to rule out what does & doesn't work!

GOOD LUCK!!

My golden puppies (5 through the years) have never really had diarrhea - one had allergies that started in young adulthood that kept him from eating until I switched to cooked, then raw. But diarrhea that lasted more than a day? No.

They have all had loose stools a time or two from unfortunate choices they made about what really is edible

Riggz was diagnosed with colitis when he was a puppy. After several months of very expensive dog food we discovered if we added rice bran to his food he does just fine. Its nice to not have to shovel and hose the yard too

So where do you get rice bran, and how do you feed it?
