ooh that is not good.  Make sure the puppy is just getting lots of fluids.

Mix 1/3 cup hydrogen peroxide in with 2/3 cup of water, add a teaspoon of baking soda.   You probably want to test the mix on  a lil corner of carpet, but I haven’t had any problems with discoloration, but definatley test it first.  then dump it on and let it sit there for a couple minutes and blot away.  After it dries a bit youmight want to rinse the rest of the mix away with water and vinegar.  The vinegar smells but it really helps neutralize odors too, even though it smells at first. 

Good luck, sorry you’re off to a rough day.

AW. Poor Puppy.

Will the crate (just the flat bed portion) fit in your bathtub? If you go to a pet store they’ll usually have pet shampooer for accidents. Renting a carpet shampooer might night be necessary? Unless it’s that bad?

If you puppy is continuing to have diarrhea, I would call your vet and ask if they can make a recommendation over the phone for the problem.  At the very least, they should be able to tell you when to come into the office if the issue doesn’t resolve.  Did you change the puppy’s food recently?  Sorry, I don’t have a lot of suggestions about the carpet…

I don’t really have any suggestions for the carpet other than the steam cleaner and bissel pet formula – we used that when our puppy had diarrhea all over our living room and it worked. 

Make sure you keep an eye on her and make sure she gets lots of fluids – when this happened with our puppy it turns out he had eaten a bit of his bedding and it cause inflamation of his stomach so he had to be put on pain meds and an antibiotic to clear it all up.  It was awful


Good luck!

That sucks – that happened to us once and it was a mess to clean 🙁  The best thing to do is rent a steam cleaner ASAP – that really got everything out of our rugs.  Also, try to get something in your pup’s stomach.  My vet usually recommends some white rice, which will calm any inflamations in the pup’s belly and hopefully put an end to everything.  And of course leave out plenty of fresh water to get her hydrated – if she won’t drink (mine doesn’t when she’s sick), you can try to add a bit of low sodium chicken broth to the water (just for taste) and that will usually entice the dog to drink more. 

Good luck!!

If your pup is still experiencing diarrhea, canned pumpkin (NOT SWEETENED) and mix it in with her/his food.  Only a about 1-2tsp.  When either of my dogs has loose bowels, I always do the canned pumpkin until it’s more solid (the poopie…eeek.)

Yup, I was just going to say, 100% PURE canned pumpkin from the pie/baking aisle. For a small puppy I would say 1tsp or a bit less. I give my 50 lb dog 1 tbsp if that helps you gage.

It’s the poop cure all. If it’s runny it helps firm it up, and if it’s not coming at all it helps get things moving 🙂

The ice is great, make sure she stays hydrated, keep her on the rice/chicken, and I would also withhold treats that are edible.

If you don’t have one already, a spot bot pet cleaner can be a lifesaver!

when this happens, i’ve always given my puppy a small spoon full of plain yogart. that settles their stomachs pretty quickly and they love it. for the carpets, you can dilute vinegar down and it will get rid of the odor and and staining. it’s a cheap and easy method and works everytime. also use this if your puppy is having trouble with potty training.

sounds like you have it covered, tho!
