Where and how did you get your puppy? Did she have all of her shots, including parvo? Did you switch her food? When was her last visit to the vet?
Without knowing more it is hard to tell whether it is something simple or something serious.

yes we did switch her food......because she was at a pet shop and has had her first injections- she is only 8 weeks old and is getting her next ones in november.

how did you change her food? did you mix the old brand in with the new to ween her off of it or did you just stop the other kind and give her the new. if you didnt mix the food and ween her off then it may be the cause of it. their little tummies are very sensetive and need to be adjusted slowly to new foods or it can cause big problems, one of them being diareah which can cause severe dehydration in puppies. give her lots of water, i would not keep her on the food and would switch back to the original food asap, and gradually introduce the new food. at 8 weeks she is very very young to be this sick, and is more suseptible to other problems if she gets sick. i would also get her to the vet asap to see if anything else could be causing this problem, as parvo causes diareah and will kill puppies. i do not trust petstores as they tend to slack on the care that they need as baby animals.

welcome snoopdogg_girl....
yes, i agree she needs a check by your vet....take all her papers you got from the petstore with you to her vet visit so they will know what shots she's had.....diarehha is problably from stress of new home, new food alot for a pup to go through.....

Yeah good luck. I hate to say this but puppies from pet stores are often really sick. Hope your doggy is ok.
