He’s 9 weeks old. Not that I know of. I just got him last week. Some of the other pups in the litter had same problem one went to ER and tests showed no parasites. He had his vaccines. Pushing on tummy doesn’t hurt him
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Friend, in a puppy common causes for diarrhea are parasites, infections, ingestion of a foreign body, etc. to name a few causes. It is important to remember that there are parasites (coccidia, giardia and whipworms) that are known to cause diarrhea, yet, be negative on fecal analysis. I would recommend discussing with your vet about deworming the puppy with Panacur. In the meantime, change his diet to rice with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef. The rice will help make the stool firmer. Do not give anti diarrhea medicine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon! Dr. Peter

He was already dewormed as well
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

It is not likely that he was dewormed with Panacur. You see, there are many different type of deworming medication and not all dewormer treat all of the parasites that affect dogs. In addition, very often we need to repeat the deworming medication. What is the name of the dewormer he was given?

I don’t know the name. On his paperwork it just states dewormed and date
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Well, Panacur would be given for 3-5 days and needs to be repeated after 3 weeks. So, this further supports that he was not dewormed with Panacur. It is likely that he was given Strongid which does not treat against Giardia, Coccidia or Whipworms. Panacur will treat against Giardia and Whipworms. To rule out Coccidia he will need to be treated with Albon.
