Thank you!. There are several reasons we mosr see diarrhea in Puppies. These include food intolerance. and Purina Puppy Chow not the best Puppy food especially in large breed dogs.
Bacterial infections can be picked up outside and can cause the diarrhea you are seeing..
Viral infections are also a common cause of Diarrhea. Since Zeus is eating sticks in the yrad this falls into the categegory of foriegn body and garbage ingestion and well as picking up toxins..Parasites like round worms, Hook worms, Coccidia and Giardia very common in puppies, but need to have a Fecal sample done by the Vet. Lastly stress can also promote Diarrhea.
My suggestion is to have the Vet run a Fecal sample to rule out Parasites, Bacterial and Viral issues. I would also look into a better brand food for puppies like Natural Ba***** *****D for large breed puppies. It is a graiun free limited ingridient diet specialy formulated for Large breed Dogs growth.
In The interim until you see the Vet, please start a bland diet of 1 part skinless chicken breast boiled, to 3 parst white rice. To the mixture you can add some Pure Canned Pumpkin which is a high Fiber food to help firm up the stools. You also need a Probiotic, like Forte Flora to help replace gut flora in the intestinal tract. I suggest the Vet visit as soon as reasonably possible. This is a common issue in Puppies, but needs to be resolved. Please hit reply to discuss this information.
