Have an 11 week old puppy and s health has seemed to decline

Customer Question

Have an 11 week old puppy and his health has seemed to decline in the past 24/48 hours. He had yellowish brown diarrhea and just a little bit ago his diarrhea is not white. He is not eating but he is drinking. He's updated on all his shots. In fact had his shots last monday. He seems very down and a bit weak. What could this be?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Has he had any vomiting, gagging, or retching?

Is he drinking a normal amount?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (iebones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

When was he last wormed?

Any blood or mucus in that diarrhea?
