i posted a couple days back that i got a new puppy.i took her to the vet for her 1st shots and check up, she is doing great with the exception she has had diarrhea twice since then.once last night and then everything went back to normal now she had it again tonight.

i asked the previous owner what food she used so i didnt change food to fast (purina puppy chow) and i double checked with her to make sure its the same food.she says yes. i thought it may of been a dog treat that the vet gave her but the diarrhea went away and then came back like i said.

over worrying? i will call the vet tomorrow but i thought some could chime in here as well.

Not a big deal as long as the puppy is feeling good, acting like a normal puppy. Its a concern that requires a vet visit if its been consistent for more than 2 days, or at the first sign of blood.

Hopefully it will be gone for good tomorrow.
