Default Newly whelped bitch. loose stools

Well a question about something you have never been asked before- Loose stools.

Well this One is about my newly whelped bitch toyah.
I understand it can happen shortly after whelping, we're day 5 today and she hasn't had a solid stool since. She woke me up 4 times during the night last night. Usually I'd starve her for the day but obviously can't do that due to the puppies.

could there be something wrong or is it just one of those things that happen after whelping?

It is one of those things that happens after whelping sometimes.

With my bitches I often find it is after eating all the placentas, so I very much try to only let them eat two or three and I dispose of the rest. Not an easy job I know.

Also it can be down to the stress of having a litter and the volume of food that you are pumping into her to produce enough food for the pups. So she may well not "firm up" again until after the pups are weaned.

I have had good results using Prokolin and know always have plenty in before a litter is born.

It can also be used on the pups a little later on if you have any problems with them.
