    Default Hello!

    Uhm Hi!

    I'm new around here, recently got a pug and I'm basically just learning as I go. Right now it's nearly 4am and I am writing this from my bedroom floor where I'm sleeping besides my pug. He's had diarrhoea for the past hours or so (he's 4 weeks old) at first every half an hour, then one two hours ago and an hour ago again and I am lying besides him as he sleeps... I didn't want him in my bed in case he couldn't warn me ahead to let him down to poop (he does this already... is this normal?)... He's been acting normal and drinking water, and we have a vet appointment first thing tomorrow (today) morning... so hopefully everything will be fine soon!

    So, hi from my bedroom floor! Tchaikovsky (my little pup!) says hi too!

    (Quick question, he doesn't snore, but he's a pup... anyone knows when they start to snore? He breathes very softly you can barely hear it. Thanks!)

    Hi there Navydream and welcome! I am a bit concerned that your pup is only 4 weeks old and away from it's mother. A good breeder would never allow a pup to leave it's mother until at least 8 weeks and usually longer for toy breeds. Keep getting water into him and then you can follow the vets advice. I am keeping everything crossed that he will be ok.

    welcome.. you are going to have a long "Start up" with a pup so young! There's a lot of learning that goes on during the first 10 weeks of a pup while it's still with it's mother...

    This is a place full of wisdom however... people will chime in with suggestions... (Mine were nearly a year old when they came to me so I don't have much "first paw" knowledge!)

    Welcome and good luck with Tchaikovsky. This is not an attack on you but no breeder should remove a 4 week old puppy from his mother.

    Welcome to Pug Village.

    I am relieved to hear that you have a vet visit scheduled so soon. 4 weeks is far, far too young for the pup to have been separated from his mother and he will need extra special care over the next couple of months. I hope that some of the breeders here may see this thread and chime in with advice on how to care for one so young.

    Diarrhoea in a pup that age is something to take seriously as they can get dehydrated and go downhill fast.

    Good luck. I hope he gets better soon.

    Was the 4 wks a mistake????? Did you mean 4 months??

    A 4 wk old pup is barely weaned.

    I'm so glad you're getting to the vet!!

    Please let us know if he's okay! Have them check for coccidia too...

    Hi everyone! Thanks for your concern! I know he's waay too young but that's usually the age the give pups around here (if not younger) I know it's wrong but I couldn't find any other older ones :( and they had no pugs on adoption on our only rescue center (they only had big dogs and some cats and I don't have the space for big dogs)

    Tchaikovsky is fine! n.n ♡ We went to the vet and he was very helpful! He's pooping fine now!

    He's drinking plenty of water and eating enough and being his playful self! I was so worried... but he's fine now. (And still not snoring... but I guess that's cause he's pretty young)

    Ah, also I work from home so I'm with him 24/7 and when I'm not here my brother is taking care of him. We adore this little one, so he's never alone.

    Thanks!
