Cavapoo Question

Hi I have just got an 11 weeks old male cavapoo. He is totally adorable but has had diarrhea...


Hi I have just got an 11 weeks old male cavapoo. He is totally adorable but has had diarrhea since he arrived 2 days ago. I have laid out newspaper and a puppy pad but he seems to be going all around it. I came home yesturday to a large area of mess. Any tips? Is it normal to have diarrhea for a few days when he's settling in? Is there anything I can give him to help? I have taken him outside a few times but he hasn't been to the loo outside yet. Thank you

Is your cavapoo on a good quality dried food diet? At his age he can dehydrate very quickly with diarrhea so I'd get him to the vet.

My cavapoo did as well . He ended up with a parasite giardiasis .

My cavapoo who we rescued also had giardia and needed flagyl until it cleared up.

It's perfectly natural. Your cavapoo is clearly nervous as he has only just moved to an unfamiliar setting away from his family. The best thing you can do is just let him get used to his surroundings and keep him on whatever food the breeder had him on. (or give him a wet food) I was very lucky with my goldie who didn't throw up, have diarrhea or even cry in the night! He's wonderful. Enjoy having a puppy whilst it lasts :)

Have you tried hamburger/rice cooked up? I would make up a small batch and freeze and give as needed? I think it might be a male thing? His littermate sister never had this problem. My male cocker spaniel had this as well,but more severe. He was NO people food and had to get a rice puppy food. He out grew it at 1.5 yr. old~~~GIVE LOVE!

Pedialite can help your puppy regain his electrolytes after a bout of diarrhea.

Ask your vet if his digestive system is okay and if he is sick. IF YOU CAN TELL HE IS ABOUT TO 'GO', QUICKLY PICK HIM UP AND PUT HIM ON THE NEWSPAPER. if HE 'GOES' ON THE NEWSPAPER, PRAISE HIM AND GIVE HIM A TREAT. AFTER HE MASTERS GOING ON THE NEWSPAPER, GRADUALLY MOVE THE NEWSPAPER OUTSIDE. then REMOVE THE NEWSPAPER AND ABOUT EVERY HOUR OR TWO, BRING HIM OUTSIDE TO GO. FROM, VET2B
