Yes, all the pups have been affected, seems to be contagious and has spread to all of them over a 7 day period. The pups are wormed at 2, 3, 4 weeks with Pyrantel and 6 weeks with Safeguard for 3 days.

I have talked with my vet about the stool sample and the blood work but thats day's or week away and puppy's don't have that time, if its infection of the liver what would be the normal med give for this type . give me some type of answer instead of take it to a vet and run test. i knew that before I sent the question. I have been raising pup's for years and bottle feed many 1000's and have not seen this. prognosis for your pup is rreally going to depend on the underlyiing cause. yep I knew that too what I don't know is what does it sound like the underlying cause is.
there stools are not alway white. now some of them are yellow and some are brown but still have diarrhea. and when we have sent stool in before and the vets have to send them to the univers. then its day's before we know something. and white stool can also be from not processing there food mal obsortion.
