Answer by  mpartin (1600)

If the puppy is otherwise healthy, then usually diarrhea in a puppy in attributed to something he has picked up on the floor and eaten that has upset his stomach.

The most common reason of diarrhea in puppies is intestinal parasites, or worms. Certain diseases, foreign body obstruction and dietary indiscretion are some other causes.

It's not uncommon for puppies to have diarrhea and it's usually caused by something they've eaten. If you've changed their food lately, that could cause it. They might have gotten into something they shouldn't, puppies are so inquisitive. Keep an eye on them and if it continues, they may have to go to the vet so they don't get malnourished.

If there is blood in the stool, it could be parvo. If not, it could be something it ate or some other sickness. Take the puppies to the vet.

Puppies of any kind can get diarrhoea. Causes are similar to causes in all mammals - an infection, eating something they shouldn't, exposure to poisons. The main risk is dehydration due to fluid loss. If the pups are still feeding from mother, the vet should check her out too.

If you are feeding them table scraps that would be the major cause of the diarrhea. If your puppies have a bug and they are not feeling well they could get it too.
