Poor baby. Sounds like she needs another Vet visit with tests to find source of her diarrhea. Praying for her and you.

Iím sorry to hear about your puppy. Iíve never bred my dogs so I donít know all the ins and outs that can happen but I would go back to the vet as soon as possible. Hopefully someone with more experience will get online and provide more information. Iíve only had to deal with a puppy with Parvo, which may be something they test for if there is ANY possibility of exposure.

I have to ask what caused the 8 week old puppy to die? Could parvo be a possibility? Are you giving nutrical or similar supplement to keep sugar up? Was any genetic testing done to make sure there couldn't be something genetically wrong with the pups?
