HELP Puppy diarrhea
Hey everyone so I've had my puppy Nylah for about 2 weeks and shes turning 3 months tomorrow!
Shes been very happy and active but when I took her outside this morning she had Diarrhea.. She would do it in a spot than move up a couple inches and than do it again..
Any tips and suggestions? I fill up a sandwich baggie a day and separate it throughout the day. My friend (the woman I bought the dog from) told me to add a bit of sugar to her water and it should help solidify things up..

I'm not to sure what to do.. please help :(

I've also had only one of her sets of shots done and she goes out into the backyard quite frequently to go the washroom, is there any chances shes got a parasite or anything?

Vet visit check for Giardia. Bring a stool sample. It's hard to detect you may have to bring another to be checked. Pure pumpkin plain can firm up stools. I'm betting it's parasite though

Take a stool sample to the vet and have him do a parasite check...worms/coccidia and a giardia snap test (giardia is a different test than the worms/coccidia).

A little pure pumpkin in her food might help if she just got into something in the backyard which doesn't agree with her.

Plenty of info on pumpkin for dogs with a quick search.

Don't just treat at home and you can't just drop of a Stool sample

Diarrhea in young pups is very concerning and I would be worried about parvo way more than giardia
