Q. Got a new puppy and was told he had his shots and was wormed, now he has been lethargic and has had diarrhea, His eyes now have a green discharge?

Answered By

A. it is meant to be worming, not working in the last sentence, I am sorry for the spelling mistake.

Answered By

A. Diarrhea is common in puppies after adopting due to new environment, stress, new food etc. Eyes with green discharge strongly suggest conjunctivitis. It can be beginning of upper airways infection too. You should take the puppy to your local vet to make sure he is ok. Please,remeber that puppies must be vaccinated twice to get full protection. Also, working should be repeated avery few weeks in young dogs.
