i have a male black/tan 8 week old puppy . I recently got him on thursday. The breeder gave me a dewormer that i had to use for 3days(today finished). She gave me Albon pills though . ( im completely new at this, first puppy) I wasnt satisfied with what i was told "the puppy will undergo stress so this clears bacteria" . I have enough knowledge to know that if she gave me those little pills to give him its because he NEEDS them medically, So i did my research. I contacted her ASAP when i read why the medication is taken and she told me he has Coccidia. Im a bit disappointed she didnt tell me that from the beginning. I';m so afraid i love this little guy so much. He's active, run plays jumps. He's eating dry kibble (pedigree for puppies). Yesterday he didnt POOP until 10PM and then again at 4AM. I did notice his poop was hard and he was struggling so def. it is constipation. (this is where i get confused. when researching coccidia it says symptoms are diarrhea and he doesnt have diarrhea but the opposite ) I was told when this happens i can add a bit of milk to his water so he can loosen up. it worked . Ahh his nose. sometimes its dry, other times is a bit wet. Is it true dry noses means unhealthy pup? If anyone can answer all these questions please do so. Im new to this and i Love my little guy ! I dont want anything horrible to happen.
