Hi Dr Kara My 13 week puppy has on/off loose stools. My vet req stool sample (as won't vaccinate until stool sample back- but still haven't received it (sent in 17 Aug). I'm concerned that he can't be socialised until he is vaccinated but also worried about his stools.
He is eating and drinking ok, has been wormed and de flea'd.
His stools fluctuate between dark brown and semi formed to lighter and not formed at all. He is not allowed to go out except the back garden. He is happy in himself and is very playful.
He has been eating Iams puppy food, chicken and rice on advice from vet. I have since given him James Wellbeloved puppy sachets which he eats with enthusiasm.
Thanks Rebecca. The sample should take 5 days but is still pending. Once the results are back I will know what to do but my vet isn't very forthcoming with information. If I don't hear by tomorrow, I will chase again for an answer.
Thanks for your advice.
