I just got a 7 week old golden doodle puppy yesterday. He

Hi! I just got a 7 week old golden doodle puppy yesterday. He seems to be under stress due to leaving his mom and litter mates but I just want to make sure the signs and symptoms are all that of stress rather than something more serious.While sleeping and awake he breathes very quick and shallow and whimpers/whines during doing so every now and again. Along with this, he has a little bit of diarrhea, although we are in the process of weening him off of a bad brand of dog food. His belly is bloated but I'm not sure if it's normal puppy belly or something else. He tends to want to drink A LOT of water and he devoures his food very quickly even when I put a tennis ball in the bowl to slow him. I am breaking up his meal into 3 meals a day.Please let me know if you think I should consult a vet.Thanks so much,Macy

I'm looking to get a Cavapoo puppy. I spoke to a breeder

Hi,I'm looking to get a Cavapoo puppy. I spoke to a breeder today and she said that dog (have been bred before) had an entire litter of much smaller than normal size puppies. The entire litter will be teacup size and that this has never happened before. I think she said she's been breeding for 6 years. (she's predicting that the puppy we are interested in will be about 5-6 pound fully grown. She is 12 weeks and 2 pounds now). She said the puppy is full of spunk..running. playing eating normally. She says the puppy seems to think she's larger and acts like the boss. The puppy has been to the vet twice (going again tomorrow) and all seems to be well.Why do you think an entire litter would be significantly smaller in weight than all previous litters? Should this be a red flag? Should we pass on this puppy/breeder?Thanks for your thoughts!

My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal

My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal plus. Took it with dinner and vomited about 4.5 hours later. She has emptied her stomach and wants water which makes her throw up more. Should I let her have the water! Are there any serious side effects I should worry about? Also will the dose be effective even though she threw it up? Thanks

He is usually very peppy, had a good appetite and doesn't mind going outside to do his business. Noticed behavior changes last night and continued all day today. What can be the problem and what is best first aid?
