ill pup, not lethargic

My pup is 7 and a half weeks old. we had her at a house where a 4 year old pom and 7 month old jack russell mix had vomiting and diarrhea for a few days but they both got better. she began being sick four days ago and she lost her appetite for a day or two and had mucousy diarrhea, then we thought she was better yesterday as she was bouncing like her normal self, eating and drinking fluids and passing normal stools but today she has had 2 bloody mucous bouts of diarrhea. the first one was pink, this one this evening was almost brown. she does keep drinking water but has not eaten in 2 days. she was wormed at 6 weeks and has been weaned to solid food at about 3/4 weeks and her diet has not changed. i can not afford the vet bill at the minute but wondering what this could be.

This sounds like an emergency!  

Your puppy has not had her full set of  vaccines, therefore she is not yet protected from diseases such as Parvovirus.  Parvovirus can be deadly in puppies. The symptoms you describe could be due to Parvovirus, Gastrointestinal parasites, and other gastrointestinal diseases.

Please take her to the vet ASAP!
