  1. I got my french bulldog age 4 months. He had diarea with a little blood. when i took him but reacured that the antibiotics he was on was just finished, that he should be fine. They say when dogs fly from another country they get nervious and end up with bowel problems. It never stopped so i took him to vet, I got more of the same meds, and de wormed him. had his stool checked and all was good vet says, He stated that it may be food related. all my dog ever ate was THE TASTE OF THE WILD dog food, and asked me to put him on RAW only. I changed him to raw. he still has diarea just not as bad and not so frequent. But he still has a bit of blood in it and he throws up. just doesnt look like a happy puppy should. He is so thin and im so worried. does any one have an idea what is going on?

    1. Im not sure but i also think he is loosing hair on his chest and under arm pits. when he throws up, it smells like he poops out his mouth, do u think he could have intestinal leaking inside of him., or could it be because of the raw food he is eating?

        Hi jackie

        Thanks for your comment. The topic of hair loss is very common, but you may have some allergy or lack of food. With what do you feed him? On the other hand the subject of the bad breath can be for not carrying a dental hygiene, there are products for cleaning your teeth and improving bad mood for dogs. Maybe you can try some of that.

      Hello again Jackie,

      Your puppy is very small and sometimes these things happen. The subject of the feed is very important, for example we of small we changed it to one of lamb and they happened to them equally they had bloody diarrhea, but as soon as we changed it, they improved a lot. In our opinion give you raw food or BARF diet from small is not the most advisable, it is preferable to give him a good feed until the year of age, chicken and rice, or salmon and rice and when adult and try if you want a diet in raw. Now to cut your diarrhea, you can give 3 or 4 days a little rice with boiled chicken breast, sure it will be better. :)

  2. Hello we recently got a Frenchie pup(8wks) and haven’t had him home but 5 days and he has been regerataing water or fluid.

      Hi Andrew, thanks for your comment. We are sorry for what your puppy is going through. Vomiting can be caused by internal parasites and maybe it is the medication that the veterinarian is giving you. On the other hand sometimes the puppies come with the parvovirus and this needs a treatment for it and even a few days in observation at the clinic. We are not veterinarians and we do not have a concrete solution, but if we have experience with these problems and we know that it is hard to medicate your puppy but think that as soon as it improves and regains strength it will be better. We hope it improves in a few days. Much encouragement! Hugs!
