so the color of the fur is red? there isnt actually anything dried or on it? and its not on the skin its not a rash? could just be the color of the fur then.

no point trying to treat something when you have no clue what it could be, when was she last dewormed? puppys ahve to be dewormed alot more often then adults I think until they are 6 months it like every month. I would have a check up , bring in a fecal sample if possible with you they can test for other parasites. is she eating and drinking? unless she isnt drinking or has bad diarreah I wouldnt bother with the pedialyte.

for the gooey poop with a bit of red in it though I would still take her to the vet and get a fecal done and check for worms and parsites that isnt normal and should be checked , regardless of if she is acting normal . that do you mean your other dog is chewing his leg? like raw? have you checked for fleas at all? is it red and only one area he does this?

Pictures would help. Eating leaves is just a puppy thing and could make the poop gooey. If you just got the pup it could be a shock to be in a new place and she may not want to play and could stress her out and have runny poop. Nothing to worry about just yet unless she looks worse tomorrow or she has bloody stool. Blood can come out in stool and not be parvo but could be a GI upset.

Treating her for fleas if she does not have them is not going to help! You can tell if she has fleas by looking at her skin. Flea dirt are little black spots on her skin if you look closely, or look for any fleas. Treating a dog for something they do not have is not the way to go. You are putting chemicals on a puppy and I do not recommend that unless they have an issue you have diagnosed not guessed.

yes fleas are easy to spot best place is to check atthe rear and right above the tail if you brush the fur backwards you will eitehr see fleas or like PK said small black dot { flea poop}. I personally dont like the flea shampoos if you dont wash it completely out they can lick it off and it can make them sick , If you want to go pesticide route id get advantage or something similar like that from your vet { apparently they have a pill form as well now } I use natural I go with brewers yeast and garlic pills they work great for my dogs but have heard some say they havent seen results so up to you.
