We are pretty strict about not taking our pups to places frequented by other unknown dogs - parks, pet stores - even the floors of vet offices. I would ask my vet why I can't take my pup in my own yard. What kind of risk is he considering?
Yes I'm in Portugal, I didn't mention but nicely noticed yes it's two exotic viruses which I don't know the name in english, only happens in the south of Portugal and both humans and dogs can have it, the yard itself is dangerous because some insects act as carriers. Oh well the puppy is gonna have to stay in until hes 4 months

Understood. That makes perfect sense. Stinks about the potty training, but better safe. Wow 4 months. Well, I adopted my pup from the shelter, so he didn't get an early start to housebreaking either. He was probably close to 4 months by the time I got him. He isn't perfect yet, but he is getting the hang of it. 4 months isn't the end of the world.

Bad news people yesterday beside beside the puppy's poop there was a little drop of watery blood on the floor, I didn't take him right away to the vet because he took a shot the day before and I've read it could somehow be related, could also be the stress of going there for the first time, but today he did it again, he does it after he poops, I don't think it's anything serious hes very active eats and drinks perfectly, but i'm not sure if it's normal, yesterday he pooped like 6 or 7 times in 24 hours, it could be a bowel irritation, he did the deworming in december, i've also read his food eukaneba causes this sometimes, anyway i've collected a poop sample and i'm taking him to the vet after lunch I think he will be fine though, has this happened to anyone in here?

Very good idea to get that sample to the vet. Please let us know what you find out. Praying that it is nothing serious.

Blood in the stool is never a good thing.
It's very good you are getting him to the vet today with a sample.

Hey! Along with the sample I got a little paper with the blood soaked it in since I've read different blood colors can mean diferent things,soI wanted to be more relieved before the results, just by the blood the vet said he didn't think it wouldn't be anything serious the pup was good no behavior change eating/drinking habits, the results were just a parasite named giardia lamblia, I thought of that since I've studied parasitology but could be so many worse things I had to get him checked, he will be fine very quickly already ate the pills, hope I didn't get it aswell though :P the vet said most likely he got it that one time I let him outside he stuffed his nose and mouth in the soil and the last deworming could have not been 100% accurate aswell

Just wash your hands well! Not much fun if you get Giardia too

Cassie had Giardia twice when she was a puppy (4-5 months)-signs of it were diarrhea with blood. She was treated and hasn't had it since. It is endemic in my area in dirt and contaminated water-humans can get it too. I'm a nurse and have seen many cases in humans. Make sure you wash your hands as Techie said. We frequently power wash the patio area so she doesn't pick up anything. Cassie is eating Eukenuba small bite and hasn't had any trouble. Then again you can't become a fanatic about everything-she'll eat bugs, grasss, blah blah...lol
