Okay me and my bf bought a puppy from some people today. They seemed quite sketch, bt I didn't feel the puppy should be punished for that. They said he's 7 weeks. We found ticks on him a couple hours later. Soon after he went poop and was bleeding. It was not alot of blood. He's eating normal and drinking water normal as well as playing around when he's not sleeping. We did get him a dif type of food. They showed us they were feeding him some Walmart brand kibble. And we got him some good brand softer can chow. Please any suggestions? I'm hoping its just the food they were giving him. Please help!!
Your puppy probably has giardia, which is an intestinal parasite. This is very common puppy problem. It is usually detected by blood in the puppy stool or by your veterinarian after testing your puppies stool. Take a sample of his stool to the veterinarian when you have your puppy veterinarian checked. It also an easy fix, but when you take your puppy for his vet check, let the vet know the puppy had/has blood in his stool. Your puppy is very young and should not have been sold to you at that young of an age, but as long as he is eating and drinking you should be fine as long as you get treatment. Please keep the puppy away from other puppies and dogs until he has been treated. Your puppy should also be dewormed and tested for coccidia which are also tested with the stool. These are come puppy ailments, donít fret. Thanks and enjoy your puppy.
