    You got great advice above, hope Bruno feels better soon, and it's nothing serious. The bland diet and pumpkin should help. Pls keep us posted on his progress, and what the vet says.

    Thanks everyone! Slowly he seems to feel better, and was playing at a BBQ today! He's eating without loosing it right away, by now were sitting inside and he's whinning and shivering. I have him wrapped in a blanket in my arms, so hopefully he's feeling better soon. I love the little guy so much!

    You've been given great advice by Becky (@jakeisgreat) for the food.

    I have two questions ... firstly what did the breeder tell you to feed him.

    Secondly, please make sure the vet checks for giardia in the fecal sample!!!!

    The Vet is sending the sample to an outside lab for much more thorough analysis, so I'm sure that will be covered.

    As for what the breeder has told me to feed him it is Royal Canine Mini Starter. Problem is, we haven't been able to feed him any kibble since he arrived as he's been having diarrhea. So far its been 3/4 cup of rice, 1/4 cup of broiled chicken, and a 1/2 tablespoon of pumpkin. He loves it, but the stool is getting worse, and I apologize for being graphic, comes out looking like the canned pumpkin, so I may nix that

    I hope Bruno is feeling better soon. Hopefully the vet will be able to give you a clearer picture of what may be going on w/him once the test results come back. It sounds like he is eating and drinking normally though so that's a very good sign. Keep us posted please!

    It sounds like you are doing all of the right things... The most important is that you are communicating with your vet. Make sure puppy has plenty of fresh water and you might want to consider not taking him anywhere until the vet gives you the all clear.

    When I got Ftse he too had diarrhoea and I fed him boiled chicken and rice and it soon cleared up but his was from feeding him raw meat the breeder told me that her husband started them on raw and they got diarrhoea. Bruno is so adorabull I do hope feels a lot better real soon and don't forget to post some photos and keep us updated.

    Dont assume Giardia will be checked for. My guy had it for months before it was discovered (was not checked until a 3rd stool sample was taken and sent to a different lab). Ended up stunting my pups growth and he is 3 years old and NEVER had a solid stool (now he need to have his anal glands manually expressed due to this). Just saying to make sure its covered as you cannot assume anything.
