BLUE NOSE PITBULL THAT IS SICK, SWOLLEN STOMACH, RUNNY STOOL

i have a blue nose pitbull who is sick.
She is about 14 weeks and her stomach is bloated and has a very runny stool, and is very lethargic, she is very out of character right now.
These type of symptoms could indicate anything from an upset tummy due to eating something she shouldn't, to a parasitic infection (possibly puppy worms or Coccidiosis), or any one of a number of contagious dog illnesses that puppies are vulnerable to.
If your puppy is up to date on all her puppy shots, then hopefully it won't be one of the more serious illnesses such as Canine Parvovirus but it's still possible.
Only your vet can make an accurate diagnosis and I strongly recommend that you get your pup to your vet right away. She needs to be examined so that you can find out what's going on and get her treatment if necessary. Puppies can get very sick, very fast so I wouldn't take a 'wait and see' attitude at this point.
I wish you the best of luck and hope she's doing much better soon.
