    Bella (also 9 weeks) developed a tummy bug days after we brought her home. I freaked out thinking it was a tapeworm because she dragged her bottom on the ground.

    The vet examined her "sample" and cleared her of worms, and checked her temp etc.

    He gave us anti-biotics to give her for a week. Sorted her out within a day or so.

    Hope he hardens up soon!

    Btw - Bella still drags her bottom along the ground...

    A lot of Cavs can have softish poo for the first year, or bouts of the runs. Once the current one is sorted out, maybe you should try switching to adult food? Some pups just find the puppy stuff too rich, and that can cause issues. Holly had the runs constantly as a pup - and looking back, I wonder if it was partly due to the rich puppy food. Even now she doesn't respond well to rich stuff, whilst normal adult kibble is fine.

    Hi Lisa

    I'm starting to wonder if its the food myself, ill wait until he is finished his tablets, although mashing them into his food is not proving very successful!

    pop it in some cheese or a slice of ham

    i too thought it was feeding related in the first post thats why i asked if your vet had examined a stool sample i think they are quick to dish out anti-biotics IMOP
