Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

What color is the discharge? Snotty/green/yellow like pus?

Are you stimulating the pup to pass urine/feces after you feed it?

Was mum nursing it and you are now giving puppy replacer milk?

Is the puppy's belly quite round or sore? Is he straining like he needs to pass stool?
