hi

just to let you know, the parvo test came back negative,which was a huge relief. They still dont know whats causing her diarheoa but the blood in it seems to have stopped. We have been given a diarrheoa treatment in the form of paste. If we see any more blood she has to go back for tests.

She seems a lot better im just glad its not parvo.

Did they test your pup for coccidiosis? It is a protozoan disease, puppies can acquire the infection from contaminated premesis {where kennel sanitation is poor, puppies reinfect themselves from their own feces. The disease spreads rapidly through a kennel} or from their mother if she is a carrier.
Five to seven days after ingesting the oocycts the first signs can be mild diarrhes which progrersses to mucous like and tinged with blood. There is loss of appetite, weakness, dehydration and anemia.
Sulfonamides and antibiotics are used to treat coccidiosis.

i am sorry to hear that your little pup is poorly and i hope you find out what it is and have it cleared up soon. but as sheplovr has already mentioned, i am wondering why your pup is so late having its imunisation injections, which should be at 8weeks and depending on your own vets preference the second 2 or 4 weeks later...then 10 days later you can take your baby out to explore the big wide world which is vital for extended socialisation. let us know how your pup is getting on....

I feel so badly for the poor little thing, what has the Breeder said? Do they never give puppy shots, just sell for money? If it is serious, I would make sure they pay or replace. I know now that might break your heart but if this might be a lifetime disease, they should replace the puppy....Pray it will be ok.
most breeders here in uk let puppies go to new homes at 8weeks, without having given 'shots', as (see previous post) the 'shots' are given slightly later than you give them. but the puppies will have been treated for fleas and worms as prescribed by vet, and will have also been vet checked...if ofcourse you have got your pup from a responsible breeder.

As a vet tech, it sounds like Coccidia to me too. Coccidia can worsen with the stress of a new home. I would take in a fresh stool sample to your vet and have them check for it. I hope your pup feels better soon! (((HUGS))))

I don't know if the OP will return, but frankly, I'd be looking for a new vet ASAP. For the vet not to have a Parvo kit on hand is really, really bad. My understanding is that the earlier you catch Parvo, the more likely it will not be fatal. To say wait till the morning to test for Parvo is really unacceptable. And testing for Coccidia should also have been done, if it wasn't. Yep. I'd be at another vets yesterday.

BTW, Parvo has a very strange smell, and vets can often tell just by the smell if your dog has parvo or not.

Just a question, did they do a fecal pathogen test for kidney failure? Moose suffered from that and his diarrhea was VERY bloody. Also, how about distemper? We had a coonhound that suffered from that. Please, keep us informed!!! And I agree with Agilityk9trainer - it is time for you to find a new vet!!!!!! Pronto. This problem should have been solved last week.

Keep us updated! I'll be praying for your puppy!
