Hello,

I am sorry to hear your puppies have Coccidia. How long have they been taking the Albon?

My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

It is more likely that the diarrhea is caused by the Coccidia, which do cause runny and sometimes bloody stools, than the Albon. Albon is used to treat diarrhea, as well as the Coccidia parasites. You can try adding probiotics to their food, like Fortiflora or Proviable. The runny stools should resolve before you finish the full course of the Albon. If it persists, I would check another stool sample to see if there are any other parasites, and if the Coccidia are gone.

Let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer.
