Question Sick Puppy?

I have a 2 month old pup just this morning her poo had lots of mucus in it. And she's not really wanting to eat. What should I do? Should I be worried?

In a pup that young, not eating is a big sign that she's not feeling well. If it were us, we'd at least touch bases with the vet, if not make an appointment to bring her in. And, at the very least, we'd bring in a stool sample for analysis.

It may just be a temporary tummy upset, but her immune system isn't 100% yet, and there are so many other things it could be.

I'd be Vetting too. Young puppies can dehydrate very quickly. Take a stool sample in with you if the Vet says to come in.
