since he's so young he might been sensitive towards the bacteria if his imune system has been low. might be causing an infectin in his intestents. I would suggest to call a vet and get an apointment.
I love dogs cause they do not lie.

Mabel had this but had it really bad, the diagnosis was sever colitis and infection shes on a really hypoallergenic diet and at the time it was bad she went on antibiotics but at such a young age it is so easy for them to sink fast with any bug so best advice would be to get the pup checked by a vet, mabel went down quite fast she didnt seem to be absorbing anything and was failing to thrive didnt have any energy she was like an old lady not a puppy and she was passing lots of blood and mucus hers started at about 5 weeks old but only mild it was really bad by 11 weeks old, shes one of our adult girls babies that is why we had her at 5 weeks if you wondered

Oh and she also had a couple of anti inflamatory injections

And should say hello sorry its at a worrying time for you

Hope your little pup gets better quickly keep us posted

I would never give a young puppy any meat to eat, keep it on a regular diet and exercise. It may need wormed, have a blockage, eaten something it should not have. The best advise if from a pro: A VET!! We can only guess to guide you to do the proper thing, get it help as pups do fail quickly with diaherra especially. If you can get it to drink pedialite children take when ill, it brings up the electrolites from dehydration until you can get into seeing a vet for a scope, swab whatever he/she does.

Hope all works out a minor thing, but pups can find the darnest things to get into and get very ill.
