DrB, I am the one with Dozer the mastiff. We also have a puppy with diarrhea. I was wondering if they could have a virus?

Hi, is your puppy sick other than the diarrhea? In other words is the puppy eating, drinking , not vomiting etc?

The only other thing he has is itchy ears and a spot where he's losing hair on his back....which I believe is allergies. He actually has an appt with the vet this weekend.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
He is eating, drinking and full of energy

ok, so this could be parasites or it could be food allergy.......

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

It is possible that the puppy gave your older dog parasites....

Is it possible that both dogs having diarrhea is related or coincidence?

Yes it could be related and that would be most likely but it could also be coincidental too.....need parasite testing to know for sure....

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

So if your puppy is doing well, then probably not viral....

If you do not currently have any other questions please rate me as this is how I make money to support my family. Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have. ( You can rate me at top right of page).

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
