    The wormer sounds too me like it was puppy drontal..We have had a dog have an reaction to this wormer as well as another, and both times he has been alot worse than just the funny poo, he was stumblie all over the place..And he needed to go straight to the vets :)...
    But thats not to say that your dog hasnt had a reaction too it..Just maybe not as bad as i have witnessed
    Runny poo can be a number of things in pups, like change of food, stress even down to the change of water..
    Having crusty eyes can also be a number of things..
    None of us can really tell you what is up with your pup all we can do is give you a few idea to as what is up with your pup, when at the vets this evening i would ask him about it and see what he suggest!
    Good Luck

    You need to make sure your pup isn't dehydrated, if she is, then it is important you get her to the vet Asap. I know it is only now only three hours from the vet appointment but if she is very dehydrated she may not last that long.
    See
    How to Detect Dehydration In Your Puppy (or other pets) | eHow.com
    shows you how to check for dehydration.

    7 weeks isn't very old and they can do downhill really fast if they are dehydrated and it is difficult sometimes to get them back

    I thought 7 to 8 weeks was optimal for leaving the breeder.

    I hope he gets on ok at the vets, poor wee thing.

    Have you done the test?
    The fact she is drinking means nothing as she may still be in a negative balance in that she may not be able to drink enough to make up for peeing and the diarrhoea, which can mean she could be dehydrated.

    thought id let u know how we got on at the vets...the vet looked at her and done her temperture and said that was fine...he felt her tummy and couldnt see a problem with her...he did give her 'Pro-Kolin'...ive got to see how she gets on and take her back to see him when she has her 1st injection on friday...she still has the runs though and there is still blood in it...but he didnt say anything regarding this so if she still has it by friday ill ask him again...she did have a better night last night with no crying through the night...but i did have to bath her this morning cause of her poo all over her backend!:(

    Is pro-kolin all they gave? No antibiotics or anything?

    Phone your vet and inform them of the blood in the feces.

    Are you feeding her a bland diet? Maybe some chicken and rice until she is better, then slowly reintroduce her normal food.

    Id be tempted to take her back today. Did the vet take her temp? Was it normal?

    Definately give your vets a ring.

    Id be tempted to take her off of her dry food, this wont help with dehydration as she already has the runs, and dry food offers little in the way of moisture.

    Get some chicken, either precooked, or raw and cook it yourself. And offer her small but frequent meals. Also encourage her to drink as much as she can, as she needs to replace the fluids shes losing.

    rung the vets and they said that it is nothing to worry about but if the tummy upset continues within the next 24 hrs then give them a call bk...i asked them what i should feed her and they said to continue with what im doing...they said the pro-kolin they gave me will help bind the stomach up so she should improve.

    yes i was thinking about the chicken idea...might give it a go and see what happens then.
