Your question seems to have been cut off.
However, I would like to make a point of asking why you have a 5 week old puppy?

It is illegal in most states to actually sell a pup prior to 6 (and more commonly 8) weeks of age.
This puppy needs to still be with it's littermates and the breeder taking care of this apparent illness.

As the previous poster mentioned, a puppy that age should not have been removed from his/her mother. Doing so could be detrimental to the pup's health and behavior. What are you feeding the puppy? Has the puppy been examined by a veterinarian? Screened for intestinal parasites? There's no way for anyone online to diagnose or treat your puppy. Diarrhea in puppies so small could be life threatening and thus he/she should be taken to a veterinary clinic immediately.

For a pup that young, she needs a vet right now. She's a baby, and it's really too early for her to be away from her mother. Please take her right away!

Diarrhea is very serious when it comes to small pups of that age, I would call a vet. Calling asking questions doesn't cost a thing and could save your pup. At least you know you are getting advice from an expert.
