    @melindaregner the only immediate thing you can do is canned pumpkin (not pie filling) or bland diet but if the diarrhea is bad you will want to find out if it is a parasite or bacteria by bringing a stool sample to your vet.

    @desertskybulldogs:

    Before we brought him in to the vet on the 24th, we actually saw the worms in his stool (still brought in a stool sample), and they put him on some meds. Bunker still had worms in his stool for the next day or so, but since then has had none. Do you know if they will be able to tell if it is tapeworms again from a stool sample, even if no worms are present? When he had the tapeworms before, his stool was like soft serve/mousse, but now it is straight liquid. Glad we take him in on the 8th...want to get this figured out! Thanks for your help!

    We are having the exact same issue with Belly. When she came home with us her poo was fine..after a few days really runny. She's going to the vet today with the baggie in tow to see if she has any issues. Supposedly we have her on the same food as the breeder which I would like to get her off of when she is a little older. She's on Eukanuba small breed puppy food and is almost 9 weeks old. When we switched our bully Cassie over to Royal Canine Bulldog she never again had tear stains or issues with her wrinkles.

    @Angelgirl if you are going to spend that amount on dog food, you really should try Fromm. It is way better than RC, and I think you would be really happy with it. RC spends a heafty amount on advertising- which gets taken out of the quality of the food. Pretty much anything you can get at a pet retailer is always going to be a second or back up choice if possible, the reason you do not find many of the best brands at pet retailers is because they wont make enough $$$ selling it.

    @BullyB
    They should be able to see eggs. Fully developed parasites lay eggs. You treat them with de-wormer, and kill all the adult and young worms. But the eggs still hatch. So in 10 days you need to retreat, before the worms become egg layers, and after all eggs have hatched. Doing it a 3rd time is not a bad idea too.

    Here is the thing, I have had several bully puppies and about 4 of them had worms. So I kept 'going back to the vet'..... 'come back in a month'.... 'oh dear the worms are not gone'..... 'lets do a recheck'..... I remember on Molly alone I spent over $1000 the first 3 months. So I went online to learn about these worms and that is what I found out!!! The vet was not scheduling me back at the right day, and I think it was on purpose!

    If you really want to deworm on your own, you can. You can order dewormer online, it is not expensive, and you can treat yourself and save a fortune.

    BUT, with that being said, you should also make sure it is not coccidia or giardia, which does require a different medication. But I anticipate that if you bring up the life cycle of the worm and the egg hatching cycle your vet will be pretty inclined to have you back in their office on the EXACT day the medication requires.

    For regular worms the medicine goes every 10 days, but I have used a more expensive product called Safeguard which also clears giardia, and that was given every two weeks.

    Stress is also a factor of diarrhea, and many puppies may get it because of adjusting to a new home.

    Food change can also contribute. If it is either of these, 2 days on a bland diet should tell you. If it is not stiff using bland diet, the odds are there is something else wrong.

    This is why it is important to get a fecal done, and if your pup has diarrhea that is SHOOTING out-- like a spray-- get them to the vet.

    @ desertskybulldogs

    Do you buy Fromm online? I'll admit Royal Canine was terribly expensive...it was just wonderful to not have the tear stains and dermatitis .

    On a good note..looks like my little one was just under stress from a new house...no parasites. They gave us a dewormer just to be on the safe side.

    @Angelgirl Yes petflow.com sells it and I believe reading they only charge like $5 to ship. Carolinapetpantry.com sells it as well.

    Just wanted to give you all an update so far. I took Bunker's poo to the vet this morning. They called and said they didn't see any parasites, but that doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't have one. So, they are putting him on a dewormer...panacare...it's a powder to put on his food, and another round of the antibiotic they gave him before (metanitrozole or something) and said to mix rice in with his food. We are to bring in another stool sample to his next appointment on Saturday morning. Hopefully something works...I just think it's wierd they didn't find anything. Bunker is acting fine, but what a messy cleanup! Thank you all for your advice!

    Gertie got liquid diarrhea back a few months ago. I'd had her for about 2 1/2 months, so she hadn't had a recent food change or anything. So I took her to the vet and she was cleared of all kinds of worms, no coccidia or giardia. I was told to do a bland diet. So I did, but I also did Activia yogart. They don't have plain, so I used vanilla. It says it's for "naturally regulating your digestive system", so I figured it may help. I don't know if it did the trick, or the bland diet part, but it didn't seem to hurt. She cleared up in a few days.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
