Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am very sorry to hear about your puppy. Has she had any vomiting? Is there any blood in the diarrhea? How often has she been having diarrhea?
Ok. How is her energy level?
Has she been to the vet yet? Had any deworming or vaccines done?
Ok. If you feel she is lethargic, and she has been having diarrhea and not eating, the safest thing to do would be to take her in to an emergency vet if one is available to you.
In young small puppies, it is very easy for them to get quickly dehydrated when having frequent diarrhea. We could be dealing with something as simple as parasites or upset tummy from changes in diet with a new home, but we also worry in puppies with these symptoms about things like parvo virus which can make them much more ill. Because of this, that would be the safest course of action. Is there an emergency vet near you? If you aren't able to do that, then syringe feeding her water and pedialyte to try to keep her hyddrated and keeping her in a warm area so she doesn't get too cold and taking her in as soon as the vet opens tomorrow would be recommended.
