Customer Question
She has puppies 9...

She has puppies 9 days ago. She has had diarrhea for nearly the entire time. I have served her to puppy food, Blue Buffalo canned & dry alternating, but the diameter continues. She is active, plays catch with her toys and is otherwise alert & the puppies are doing well. She does not seem to be dehydrated and is not vomiting.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name?

Sadie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sadie?

She does seem to get very stressed when the male comes into the room, so I keep him out.

What color is the diarrhea? Any blood?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
