    Default Runny Poop from 6 1/2 week old puppies.....

    My 6 1/2 week old puppies now have diarrhea.... I had their first set of shots and their first worming on Thurs. (4/26). They have been eating fine and they are now drinking plain water! This morning I got up to feed them their "breakfast" and there was poop everywhere! I cleaned them up and got their food ready to eat, and they went to the papers on the floor and it shot out! Runny..... I haven't changed anything other then for the past 2 days I've given them a tsp. of Dannon Plain Yogurt once a day (per vet orders). He said " it will give them good bacteria". I feed them 4 times a day and their last feeding was around 9:15-9:30 last night. I've read that i can give them pumpkin, if so how much and how often? I have to get their poop firm..this is killing me!!

    Some dogs can't take dairy products so first I would do is stop giving them that yoghurt and see what happens.

    @RiiSi is right, the yogurt will make the stool loose especially if served alone. You might want to give them the yogurt in the morning feeding. When I gave yogurt to the pups, I mixed the yogurt in the soft food. Cut back on the amount & I would give them pumpkin in the food also, it will make a huge difference. Keep fresh water out for them. I would Give each of them a tsp. of pumpkin immediately.

    @Sherry is right, give the pumpkin right away, (straight pumpkin in a can, not the pie filling kind" plus either stop the yogurt for a day or two or mix it with their food, and maybe cut down the portion of yogurt a little and that should help.

    I would stop the yogurt right now if you are feeding Fromm puppy, just until you get it settled. Fromm puppy has good bacteria in it already, but you may want to take a sample to your vet of the poo to make sure their is no coccidia, which is common in young puppy with low immune digestive systems. Pumpkin will help as well.

    You can bathe them, use a bit of Johnson's baby shampoo and warm water, no water in the ears!
    Most of our pups leave bathtime lovers because of this routine:
    I wrap them in a towel after i dry them and cuddle them for about an hour to make sure they don't get chilled, then make sure it is not draft anywhere they are until completely dry.

    Still really soft poop! Vet gave some anti diarrhea medication , but they still have very soft poo?! Will the pumpkin make it like that too? Feeding them 4 times a day do it? The Vet checked their poop for Coccidia, but it was negative (yay), but I just don't get it?.... They are eating Fromm Puppy Gold, do you think that that could be the culprit? Help Please.......8(

    Maybe too much food, that can also cause the poopies. How much are they each eating per day?
