Florinator Posted November 28, 2020 Report Share Posted November 28, 2020 My 4-month old puppy has been having very loose stools lately. Or maybe I'm paying more attention now than I did 2 months ago when we got her... Nothing changed in her diet, so at first I started freaking out about parasites, viruses, worms and whatnot, but it's weird, because she'll have 2 perfect stools and a totally watery one, all on the same day. Some days she'll have 1 good one, 2 watery ones, some days all her stools are loose. I don't remember her ever having *ALL* her daily stools "normal". She's my first dog, so I have no baseline for comparison, I have no idea what "normal" is. My browser history is full of pictures of puppy doo-doo... I started giving her a spoonful of plain yogurt twice a day a few weeks back, and it looked like it was helping at first, but now I'm not so sure. She looks and acts normal, no behavior changes. We feed her the Blue Wilderness Puppy kibble, and half a can of the Blue Wilderness puppy wet food at dinner. She gets less than a handful of treats a day (which I cut into smaller pieces than as they come, because I don't want to fill her up), as we train her to do tricks through the day. She chews on a beef tendon or a bully stick once or twice a day (as I alternate them, any one of these lasts her more than 3-4 days), and before bed I give her a piece of a cow or pig ear. I cut the ears into long strips about 1 inch wide, so she never gets a full ear at once. She had the 3rd round of shots a week ago, and got Pyrantel (de-wormer) on every visit. I did start taking her on walks in my neighborhood before she had all her shots, which is why I'm freaking out somewhat. I'm baffled at the randomness of it all. I would expect all of them to be bad if she were sick. I'm going to take her to the vet, but it'll be a few days until I can get an appointment, so I figured until then, I can see what the collective Border Collie nation has to say about this.
