AngieW in Texas Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 Our mostly German shepherd puppy is having a lot of stomach issues. She was fine the first month we had her with no problems at all. The vet dewormed her the day after we got her from the shelter at 10 weeks old. She started puppy class two weeks ago. The next day, she had diarrhea. She never had any accidents, but she did wake me up during the night to use the bathroom. The vet got her fixed up with metranazidole and propectalin and dewormed her again. We did a sample and they found one roundworm egg, so that's why we dewormed her again. She missed the next puppy class because I was sick. The 3rd puppy class was this past Saturday. The diarrhea started that night because she woke me up to take her to the bathroom 3 times. I took her to the vet yesterday. They gave me propectalin again and recommended that I give her some canned pumpkin with her food. If the diarrhea didn't stop, they said to just call and I could pick up some metranazidole again. She woke me up twice last night to use the bathroom and she still has pudding-like stool. I just collected her sample to take to the vet and I will be picking up the metranazidole this morning. I find it curious that both times this has happened the night following puppy class. I wonder if it's because of the amount of training treats there, although the treats I was using were mixed with her regular kibble, about 1/4 cup of training treats to 1 cup of kibble. Any suggestions on what I can do for her? She is eating Royal Canin puppy food, which she hasn't had any problems with, although right now she is eating the special EN diet kibble.
