hey guys sorry I have been asking so many freaking questions. Gotta love being a first time dog mama, But I have noticed that Teagan my 9 week old westie pup has been having blood in her stool. It is not always there only occasinally. She still plays like crazy, eating drinking normally I have not noticed anything behaviour wise that might make me suspect that she is sick. I was thinking it might be from worms but she is from a really good breeder has had her first shots and her dewormings, so I was just wondering of you guys might have possible answers to this? I will be calling her breeder tonight and see if she might be able to help me out, I am just a little worried right now not trying to make a big deal out of this as of yet.

Thanks guys for listening to and helping me out again.:)

Hayley

That warrants a call to the vet.

One thing you should have done already is after getting the pup from the breeder was to take her to a vet for a complete physical. Do not take the dog to the vet that the breeder recommends. If you do not already have a vet in mind in your area than ask friends and family what vet they use. The reason for not taking it to the breeders vet is the breeders vet could be biased.

I totally agree with the above. The first thing I did as soon as I brought Cooper home, was take him to my own vet, even though he had been to the breeders vet several time for vaccines and check ups. Have your vet see the pup asap for a physical and fecal exam. Good luck.

thanks guys I will be.

another question? could the bleeding be caused by change of food diet? I have been putting organ puppy food into her food the breeder has been feeding her. The bleeding did not start until I started doing that, which I have stopped doing that for now to see if the bleeding will stop, also should I be wetting down her food? She eats solid food no problem, but maybe it is too much for her little body to handle right now, The breeder was feeding the puppies wet food.
