    I would stop chicken as that could be a common allergy for these guys. Maybe try a duck or turkey. If you wanted to switch brands, some good kibble brands would be Acana, Orijen, Fromm, Earthborn Holistics, Zignature, just to name a few.

    Has her stool been tested for parasites? You can also try adding in some pure canned pumpkin (not the pie filling) or some slippery elm to help with the diarrhea.

    I use chlorhexidine wipes to wipe Louie's face every day.

    I will look up any of those brands as I only have 1 petco here in my town but maybe online would be better. I will try and add pumpkin next time see if that helps a bit. Thank You!

    Simply lose the chicken. @Cbrugs got you covered there. Acana has tripe in their kibbles n your dog needs a good probiotic. Tripe is a plus. After each wipe make sure you dry the face too

    Free 2 day shipping on Chewy.com if you spend over $49. I use it all the time, saves me lugging that big bag of dog food around.

    Petco doesn't sell those brands. Not sure if you have a more "boutique" style pet store near you.

    I donít I live in a small town in Texas I got only petco not even PetSmart and a local one but they only carry their own brand. I will try chewy.com I guess so would Acana be a good choice then? Any more additives or something I can add to the kibble that is recommended?

    I don't think Chewy sells Acana anymore but maybe their website will tell you where you can buy online. Acana is a good choice. You can add in a probiotic like raw goat's milk or fermented sauerkraut (in the fridge section, not canned). I also like to give sardines once a week (I buy the Season no salt added in water kind).

    Yeah I actually just looked up Acana and did see that they carry it in a local petstore about 30min away but itís worth it. Also which of the Acana type would be recommended I see they have a bevy if options and the puppy one says itís chicken based. Sardines huh?

    Which type of Acana dog food would you recommend as the puppy one they carry is chicken based I think

    I would start with the Singles line. It has just one protein so then it's easier to track if an issue comes up. Try starting with the duck and pear for a month and if no issues, switch to a different protein and so on. Acana is richer than some other kibbles so there is a possibility you will have to feed less of it.
