    Default I got a problem with my dogs food - need advice please

    Hi all, my 10 week old puppy was eating a UK brand dog food called Purina ( garbage food ) when i got him. I wanted to feed him a better quality food, but after 6 days of a gradual change he seems to have diarrhea ( not quite water but not hard either ) is this normal or should i consider another food to put him on?

    Are you still slowly changing the food over? (what food are introducing now ) and how much do you feed a day

    Hi again Pati, i am feeding 170 grams of food per day. I puppy was eating Purina Beta but after a bit of research i found this to be a poor quality food. I did read good reviews about the csj puppy food which i have in another thread, so i bought a 15 kg sack of that and started introducing it to him from Monday. I started with 1/4 cup of the csj and 3/4 Purina, now im up to 3/4 CSJ and 1/4 Purina. I dont have any of the Purina food left now and from tommorow he will just be eating the CSJ Food, even though his stools are quite runny.

    should i change him onto another food such as wainwrights, or stick this food out and see how he goes? Thanks very much for your time and help!

    I usually switch slower than that but since you run out ,give it a few days (dont feed anything other than dry food - like treats etc) and see whats happen ,make sure your pup is drinking and eating fine -if runny stools dont ease up it could be that something in the food is not agreeing with your pup stomach
    But in my opinion after few days maybe less his soft stools should stop (just keep an eye on them -for blood etc)

    At least you are trying to give your baby better food -we all been there ;-)

    Keep him for few days see whats happen -there is no point in changing food if your baby (eventually ) does good on it ;-)
