My 48 days old Lab puppy passed stool for 7 times today,help?
My 48 days old Lab puppy passed stool for 7 times today so far (it's 10:30 PM right now), and the tools were a little loose. In last 4 stools, at the end of stools a couple of drops of mucus came out, and I could see a little bit blood in the mucus. The stools were not completely liquid, but were softer than normal.
I am not sure why the bloody mucus is coming out, but I am a bit worried.
The puppy seems very normal otherwise. She is very alert and playful when she is up for it. She eats very well, and drinks water as normal.
I had dewormed the pup with half tablet of Drontal Plus at 5 AM on 8 November, and then a vet gave 7-in-1 vaccine at 1 PM on 9 November.
About the food, I have been feeding Royal Canin Maxi Starter to the pup, but from 10 November, I am mixing a little bit of Royal Canin Labrador Junior 33 with the Maxi Starter.
The pup is born on 26 September, so she turned 48 days today.
I called a vet to find out what could be the issue, and he said it could be a kid of dysentery, and gave names of an antibiotic syrup. I was a bit sceptical about giving medicines to dogs without justified reasons, so thought to check with you before I give any medicines.
Please let me know what I should do.
I am looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
Thank you very much in advance.
