3 Month Old Puppy... New to Puppy Care

by Carly
(Cedar City, Ut.)

Hi everyone! I recently brought home an Aussie/Lab mix. She is a wonderful addition to the family and wants only to please us. She will be 3 months this week and I am wondering what is normal for her bathroom breaks. Ever since we brought her home about 3 weeks ago she has had very loose stool. We have her on Purina Puppy Chow and took her to the vet for de-worming. This helped a little, however, she still has loose stool and I just wanted to see how normal this is. I've had a number of dogs, however, they were all adult rescues and I am very new to puppy care. I'm just wondering if this is normal for a puppy her age or if I should consider trying additional fiber or another supplement. Any suggestions would be great!

I feed my Aussies Blue Buffalo Freedom. There have been quite a few articles about Purina.

I feed my dogs Solid Gold. They carry a good puppy food called Hundchen Flocken (Dog flakes in German). Solid Gold also carries a supplement called Seameal which might help with the digestive problems.
My 1st Aussie was an Aussie/lab mix. He was such a special guy. Very smart, strong herding instinct, silly as he could be. He looked and acted like an Aussie. He had a very long, thick coat. Most people thought he was a border collie. Dundee would herd geese in the water and once saved my girls--or his girls-- from a coyote. He was one special boy.

Feed your pup food with no wheat, no rice, no soy. Purina Dog Chow is not a good choice.
