Q. I have 2 week old litter with diarrhea. Is it was safe to feed a cc or 2 of Pepto or plain Yogurt to them at this age?
Hello Cindy, my name is Elaine, I saw your website online and called. The lady recommended that I refer my questions to you... I hope you don't mind. I have a litter of English Bulldog Puppies that are 2 weeks and 1 day. Every time they eat off of mom they are getting diarrhea. I was wondering if it was safe to feed a cc or 2 of Pepto or plain Yogurt to them at this age. I know in the past I have, but they were a little older. I've never had a litter have it at this age so I wasn't sure and I wasn't an expert opinion... Thanks so much for you help.

A. I would find out why they have diarrhea before I gave any medication. It could be something you are feeding the mom, that is making them have loose stool. They could have parasites like roundworms or coccidia. I would get a stool sample checked by a vet and go from there.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.
