    Default is this normal?

    Hi all

    I have a 9 wk old male Cavalier. Ever since I have gotten him he has not done any solid poos. He has had his parvo and has been wormed. I got his first round of vaccinations 2 weeks ago, he is getting his second set this Saturday.

    I am feeding him Red Mills Leader dry kibble which has water added to make it moist as he is still cutting his teeth. He drinks a good bit of water also.

    He is very active and playfull so I am wondering how serious are these loose stools? There is no blood in them

    Haven't got time this morning to write a long reply sorry (on my way out) but please get your puppy to a vet straight away. This can be serious.

    when you say soft poo do you mean just soft or runny or fluid like ???

    if its just soft i don;t see the need to worry its prob either done to the wornmer OR some puppy foods being high in protien ...is he a good / greedy eater ? this could be why

    also at 9 weeks he won;t be yet cutting his teeth after all he has only just got them them this normally starts around 4 months

    Its soft, sorry to sound crude but its like an ice cream that has melted in the snow except its brown!

    God I know he is so young but he teeth are quite sharp already! My poor toes are not safe when he is around!

    it sounds feeding related many pups that are greedy suffer from Mr Whippy poop ( SORRY )

    his teeth are sharp becuase they come through that way its not that he is teething he already has then ....

    good luck i think i might keep an eye on the amount your feeding and see if the poo firms up

    thanks for that Inca I will keep monitoring the situation, he seems to prefer 4/5 small meals a day rather than one big meal, he will have bit, have a play and then go back for another little bit.

    Yeah when i was feeding mine and they were puppies i would feed them 3 small meals a day, to me 4/5 small meals is a bit to much. I am with inca it sounds like the food might have to much protein in it, this happened with my first dog freddie and i had to bring him to the vets and he is now on Royal Canine and loving it!!!

    hum will have a look at introducing that royal canine and see what its like, I only went out and bought a 4kg back of the red mills last week! I have tried the Pedigree Puppy pouches but he is not interested in them.

    See how he gets on with red mills, he needs to stay on the same food for awhile but if u feel it is not agreeing with him change talk to ur vet about it!!

    Wit fred i put him on pedigree puppy knibbles and it went straight through him as it was to strong for his little tummy!! I am sorry (for the way i explain it) but it is the same as if u eat a curry or something that does not agree with u.

    PS i think we are going to need pictures soon!!!
