Newborn Puppies with Diarrhea
HOW TO TREAT DIARRHEA IN NEWBORN PUPPIES
Diarrhea in newborns (1- 4 weeks old) can be frightening and deadly so consult with a vet immediately. Some loose stool can be due to over feeding, if you are bottle feeding as well as the mom, and it can be due to a diet too rich for the puppies causing "rapid transit stools". This can happen with goats milk. If your vet determines it is an infection they will be put on Amoxicillin antibiotic drops . In addition there are two things you can do to help with this situation.
Hopefully you have read my other article on whelping and weaning ahead of time so you are prepared and have these two products on hand.
FIRST: With loose stools try to see if just using the BacPakPlus probiotics alone will hello with the stools. Do this by mixing a little probiotics in the palm of your clean hand and addig in a little room temp distilled/bottled water - made into a little paste and wiped on their tongues AM and PM to get the flora of the gut starting to kick into gear and help with digestion.
If that does not make a difference soon enough, then you may need to use Ox-E-Drops.
In Serious Situations:
If by some chance the puppy does start with bad loose stools, you
can give the diluted Ox-E-Drops (see above) internally once every
90 minutes - 4 times a day until the puppy improves.
After the enema, wait 20-30 minutes and take a healthy pinch of BacPakPlus and dissolve in 4 CC of slightly warmed water, pull up into the syringe (no needle) and give an enema with it to establish flora in the lower gut.
ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA - Instructions from Biopet Nzymes Website
Puppies with Aspiration Pneumonia can be given Ox-E-Drops internally 3 times a day and diluted as stated above (always diluted in water), as well as in a vaporizer.
FOR RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS (i.e., pneumonia, Dog Flu, congestion, breathing disorders, kennel cough, sneezing, asthma, bronchitis, wheezing, bacterial infections). -
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE AS AN INHALANT
Nebulizer Use: Mix 7-8 DROPS of Ox-E-Drops Concentrate with each OUNCE of water in the nebulizer reservoir (reservoirs usually hold 2 ounces).
Directions for Pets:
Place the pet in a enclosed area like a small area like a flight kennel or small cage with the vaporizer near. Cover with a towel to make a tent so the vapors are directed toward area where the pet can inhale them. (avoid hot steam near their nose or face). Allow the pet to breathe the vapors for 15-20 minutes of EACH HOUR for a period of 4-5 hours. Repeat the procedure for 2-3 days.
