I have a question about a puppy who has been separated from

I have a question about a puppy who has been separated from her mother. The litter appears to be 3x's bigger in weight and overall size compared to this puppy. I have removed this puppy from her pack because she was not eating and has bad diarrhea. Her poop is dark green. She will not interact with her litter mates and will hide in the corner of the whelping box.She appears to be the runt although I might just be assuming so based on her weight.My question is regarding removal from the litter mates completely while she gets better or do I put her back into the whelping box ? I know it is important for puppies to be with other dogs to develop skills needed in life. I have been giving this pup a lot of love and affection and she sleeps bundled up in her favorite blanket next to me at night. I just want this pup to have the best shot at getting what she needs to get better.Please advise.

My Great Dane shredded a towel on Tuesday when no one was home

My Great Dane shredded a towel on Tuesday when no one was home so we don't know if he ingested any of it but he has started to have light brown liquid diarrhea and tried several times to move his bowels further. He is eating, he is not lethargic and seems to be ok otherwise. We have been giving him rice, pumpkin and a pro biotic milk to help his stomach. He has had surgery in the past for eating a sock but his symptoms were very obvious with that. There were a few small strings in some of the waste that I sprayed with the hose in the yard. He drinks and eats regularly.
