View Full Version : New Cav Owners

5th May 2008, 07:37 PM
Hi all, We are new cavalier king charles owners. We've got a one year old black lab and wanted a friend for her but not quite as big as her, after lots of research we thought that the cavalier nature was the closest to a lab but in a smaller body so now we have a litlle boy that we've named Diddy. Its taken her a while to get used to the little upstart as she sees him but is coming around, the only problem is that he's had an upset stomach for a few days which we were warned may happen due to the stress of a new home. We are giving him chicken and rice to help but its not really helping. He's off to the vet for his puppy check tomorrow so we will give the vet the 20 questions. Look forward to lots of chats with you all.

Be sure to take a stool sample in. Sometimes puppies have the coccidia parasite which is really common and it will get set off by stress.
