Customer Question
A small 4 month...

A small 4 month old puppy has had diarrhea for 3 days. It is a little more formed now like a frosty The last two days there has been a little blood in the feces. She is not fixed. What do you recommend?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Freya

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Freya?

No. She is acting normally. No committing and eating and drinking just fine. She just gets into everything so worried she could have eaten something causing this.

Puppies do get into a lot of things, but there are also lots of things that can cause loose stools and blood.

I think that is a good sign she is acting normally and eating and drinking like she usually does.

Has she had a first check up with a veterinarian yet?
