Puppy not eliminating completely

My 9 week old girl, who is adapting remarkably well to our home and family, is giving us trouble in the housebreaking process.

A few minutes after eating, she needs to eliminate. She gives clear signs and someties even whines a bit, and we take her outside. She will eliminate in the yard, sometimes quickly, sometimes after a considerable amount of time. So far so good.

But then when we bring her back in, if we turn our back for a second, she will eliminiate again in the house....sometimes twice.

The initial stool is well formed, the ones in the house less so.

She had diarreah when we got her Friday, but we seem to be making good progress there. Like I said, her initial stool is well formed and looks like it should, at least to me. A week ago it was pudding.

Any ideas?

Probably still stressed, after all her world has been turned upside down. Just to make sure she doesn't have a worm I would bring a stool sample to your vet and have it checked out.

Also, since you know she does eliminate pretty much as soon as she's inside, I would keep her outside a little bit longer after she's gone the first time. Encourage her to go potty if you can.

Bring a stool sample into your vet and check for parasites.

When I brought my puppy home he did the same exact thing. Turns out he had coccidia. That particular parasite is usually transmitted from their mothers through her feces. It can take 13 days to show signs or symptoms. Sometimes it takes a stressful event, like bringing a puppy to a new home, to set off signs and symptoms.

It was a quick fix. A pill once a day in some peanut butter did the trick. He is fine now and is almost fully house trained at 14 weeks.
