Default German shepherd having loose motion

I recently got my german shepherd when she was 5 weeks old. Its been 3 days now and i guess my puppy is not excreting the way it should. The faeces is a mixture of semi-liquid & semi-solid. After I had noticed this for the first time, I had changed her food a little. I would like to know if the way she is excreting, is normal for a puppy at her age. Also she is very sleepy from the last couple of hours. Other than this, my puppy is very active and playful.

I would be very pleased if any anyone could reply to my questions as soon as possible.

Have you taken her to the vet? She may need to be de-wormed or have parasites.

Yes, take her to a vet.

What are you feeding her and how much?

Five weeks is very young. What country are you in and what foods are available to you in addition to what you are feeding?

No, this is not normal.

Your puppies both need to see a veterinarian right away!

Veterinarian visit. ASAP. Internet health assessments are not advisable.

why would you accept a puppy at that young age? and yes, get to the vet asap.

I went through the same thing. The rescue I went through lied about my puppies age. She ended up being MAYBE 6 weeks... They told me 12ish... Psssht... I took her to the vet. They put her on a dewormer, perscription bland diet for puppies and if your puppy starts to do a little better add some pumpkin... And I really swear by the pumpkin but see your vet first. They will probably give you some meds first.

Wow 5 weeks old should still be with mom. Some puppies get lose stool when stressed or a change in diet. But vet to be safe, there is so many things little guys can have that is a simple fix with the right meds, but can die without Good luck
