our pug milo is having diarrhea right now,he hasnt eaten anything to day.his last pooh has some blood.but he is energetic.im so worried.what should we do?im a new pug mom.and have no idea.thanks for the help.
I agree when it comes to these little ones you should never wait on anything as with alot of their health issues some things need attention right away.Pugs need alot of special care as alot of people want them because their cute and they don't realize there is alot to taking care of them but,you should be calling your vet in case of a problem.
Don't wait for tomorrow! Blood in diarrhea needs to be seen immediately. Pugs can lose too many fluids and electrolytes in a short period of time. Please call NOW! Let us know ASAP; our prayers are with you and your little cutie.

For future reference just take a look at this article http://home.ivillage.com/pets/symsolve/0,,j6cd,00.html (you can find a lot of good info on other sites too).
When one of my dogs have diarrhea, I first try to suspend all food in the first 24hrs and give them pedialyte and some probiotics to try to easy off their discomfort. Bland rice and some cooked chicken always seems to help too. If after 24hrs it does not get better I'll call the vet for advice.
Best wishes to Milo :)

"Hi Sophie, it sure has been awhile, your daughter is very cute, and how old is Milo now. I know the time has flown by, Linus will be 10 and Lizzy 9. I hope all is well. This is the first I have been back to Pugslife in a few…"
Sad to say Sophie that most of the migrated to Facebook, I just gave up. Di and I remain I touch by email and I kept in touch with Pam in Arizona, and with Molly in California until she died last year, her and Izzy within months of each…"
"The pushchair came out of Amazon, around £40 Mark, not the greatest but we have had good use if it. We were considering buying a new one but they are really all of a muchness. If Milo is anything like Hektor he will love the fact that he can…"
