I'm here because I have a little problem with my new puppy and hope that your experience will help me get through it. Her name is Meg and she is a chocolate & white border collie and is nearly 11 weeks old. I collected her from the breeder last Tuesday who told me she had no problems and had been seen by their own Vet, having had her first vaccination the previous week. When I got her home she (almost) immediately passed a very loose stool on the carpet before I could put some newspaper down. I was given some BETA Puppy Food to give her, but she continued to pass very watery stools, so I gave her chicken & rice to help calm things down. She didn't improve so I consulted my Vet who prescribed Pro-Kolin+ which seemed to help and who also advised me to re-introduce the BETA puppy food gradually over the weekend. Well, that didn't work out too well, so on Monday I reverted to the chicken & rice only and her stools have firmed up somewhat even though the Pro-Kolin has finished.
Now I'm concerned that she is not getting all the nutrients her growing body needs just with the chicken & rice, but don't know what to do next... She is happy and lively and loves her food (which she gets in four small meals a day), so I don't think there is any underlying infection.
I really hope someone will be able to advise me,
