I adopted an 8 week old lab/weimaraner mix from the humane society 10 days ago and he has had loose stools and been gassy since I've had him. He's been into the vet twice and treated for a throat infection both times, and he was also given anti-diarrhea pills and started on a bland diet (half rice or oatmeal plus half puppy chow), including limited water consumption, but he still has diarrhea. He was neutered the day before I got him and has had his first shots. His stool sample was negative for parasites. He also had his first heartworm pill. I am concerned that he is not getting the nutrition he needs and that there might be something else wrong. He seems to be sleeping more than usual and his appetite has declined in the past 2 days. Is there anything else I can do?
Although diarrhea is common in young puppies, it is time to go back to the vet. Your pet may need more aggressive treatment. Good luck, vetcare
