Also, do not over feed! Small meals 3 or 4 times a day is important for pups. What are you feeding, how much, and how often? I'm not overly concerned what you are feeding - I don't want to get into a long chat about food again; what amount do you feed each time; and how many times per day are you feeding.
I would not give pups any treats. I would treat them by using the kibble you are feeding to them. The ingredients in treats often messes up a pups tummy.
Have the vet check for worms, Giardia, and Coccidia in the stool sample.

Diesel7602 My boy did this when I brought him home because I changed his food from what the breeder was feeding him. then the vet said it's the wrong kinda food so I had to change it again :banghead: I've heard pumpkin can help, or 2tbs of yogurt in his food can help with tummy problems. Also , don't quote, but I've read that over feeding can cause soft served poo. I would say check maybe for parasites, like others have posted, but they covers that.

Suburbandiva Have you been giving him any treats or rawhides or anything between meals? That was what did it for us - it wasn't the food it was the rawhides that we didn't even think about as food. Is he eating anything in the yard like rabbit poo or something falling from the trees that could be causing the later poop to be runny?

gnet158 Could be his stomach too. My boys overnight poops are firm, but it seems like the others mainly 30 minutes after eating are like soft serve ice cream, with watery one every now and then. But he's eating grass, leaves, and other stuff too.

gsdsar I would run a stool sample to the vets to check for parasites. If positive then you could take you pup in for exam and get meds.

On/Off Loose Poop

Sorry to be descriptive. Not sure what to do in this situation. Ever since I brought my little guy home (this past Saturday), he has been having on-again, off-again loose poop. At first I thought it was just because he was stressed about the change, then it seemed to get better, then it got worse again. I did some research and made him the boiled chicken/rice combo which I have fed him for two meals now. He had a normal poop and then a bad one again later on. I'm not sure what to do . He has a vet appointment for Monday, will it be ok to wait to talk to the vet until then? Or is this urgent? I should mention it is just loose, not watery.
