Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Because young puppies do not have a mature immune system, it is easy for them to develop a Urinary Tract Infection or a Vaginitis if this is a female. Your vet will have ot check this puppy and start your puppy on antibiotics because the puppies immune system cannot fight this off. I wish I could give you a home remedy for this but without the antibiotics that are only by prescription, this could get worse without treatment.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
This is most likely a UTI so amoxicillin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs may help. It is hard for me to say since I have not had a chance to examine your little one so do the best you can. At this age, there can be other issues causing this such as a hereditary problem and we cannot know this without a good physical exa. If the puppy is still active and nursing, he may do fine.
You are very welcome....I hope your little guy will be ok!!
