Hi all, Can anyone out there tell me is it normal for a bitch to get diarrhea after having puppies.

This is not a very good place to be asking, gilmickston. The board is very pro-spay/neuter and there aren't a lot of members with whelping experience. If it's been some time since the pups were born and the dam is still having a loose stool, your best bet is to talk to a vet. She may need meds, and it would be a shame if the pups should come down with something, too.

She still needs to see a vet, though. Is there one available for you to call? (I don't know what time of day it is in Ireland :o)

How bad is the diarrhea?

As far as I know it is not normal. I would take her to the vet to have her checked out since if there is anything wrong she will pass it to her pups while nursing them. :eek:

Glad to hear she will be getting spayed. :thumbs up

I hope there is nothing wrong with her......good luck and please post with an update. :fingerscr :goodvibes:
