Baby Karma has stool the consistancy of chocolate syrup. Just started today. Oddly, so does the 11 week old lab next door. She hasn't eaten anything odd lately, just her dry food and a milkbone. Any suggestions? Extra water? At what point should I call the vet?
It is possible that both dogs found something outside. My dogs found some fruit from a tree and ate themselves sick one day as a kids. I ussually leave a constant supply of water and feed the dog rice. If it doesn't clear up or you are conserned about the condition of your animal take it to the vet.
I'd call the vet right now actually. ANy time small puppies get diarrhea there's a concern of it being Parvovirus. Even if your dog has been vaccinated for it, it can still get the disease. Better safe than sorry.
Dear Karmas Mom, You should take her to the vet as soon as possible. Give her water frequently to keep her hydrated. It could be parvo, so take her to the vet. The food would definatley not do this to her. Feed her dry food too. Extra water would definatley help. You need to get her to the vet ASAP. Best of Luck, LindyLou
the food could do that to her, she is 11 weeks and her body is going through a lot of changes. it could also be a virus/stomach flu type thing. there are a lot of things that could cause that. learn learn learn then save a lot of money by only going to the vet when it is really necessary!
