Remedy for Puppy with Diarrhea?

I have a teacup Yorkie puppy who's going to be 8 weeks old next week. She weights 1 pound 4 ounces. She has diarrhea. Want could I give her so she could poop normally?

Take the puppy to the vet ASAP. Diarrhea can mean any number of things, and in a puppy, it can be quite serious. This is not something you want to treat with home remedies.

Hi, it would be a good idea to take your pup in for a fecal exam. Sometimes pups can have intestinal parasites- completely treatable. Make sure your pup is drinking lots of water and some organic canned pumpkin could help temporarily. Good luck with your new puppy :)

Took my 4 1/2 lb Chihuahua to the vet as she had diarrhea for weeks after being adopted from shelter.


She received an IV injection of mult vitamins, vit C and fluids. At home I used NutriCal - high calorie oral jel many times daily to keep up her blood sugar. Get that from vet or petstore. Also, syringed Pedialyte as she wouldn't drink much.

Food included cottage cheese, boiled rice and hamburger or chicken. Lomotil and Pepto Bismol was prescribed per weight.

Good luck. SMK
