    Did you change her food gradually? If you just change their food all at once they will likely get diarrhea. It takes me about a week to switch brands of food, starting with 3/4 of the old food mixed with 1/4 of the new. After 2 or 3 days, feed 1/2 old and 1/2 new for a couple of days, then 1/4 old and 3/4 new for a couple of days, and then all new food. Stools may remain a little loose for a while--that's why I started giving the probiotic Fortiflora.

    I did have to abruptly change it. The breeder only gave me enough for 2 days and he was feeding the puppies stuff i can only get online. I called the company and because of new years i wouldnt get it until tomorrow or monday. Her last outing about an hour ago after dinner was almost back to normal again so hopefully by tomorrow we'll be ok.

    I think its definitely the food change now. Just went out again and shes got the diarrhea again. We go to the vet tomorrow for her health check so I'll see what they say. If she doesnt agree with the orijen after a couple weeks I'll start looking at slowly getting her on fromms. Fortunately she isnt having accidents and can control when she goes.

    Well, that wasn't too helpful of your breeder, was it? What was he thinking? She'll adjust to the new food anyway, just give it a little time. Keep us posted.

    UGH... if you ever have that happen again... use the bland diet as a transition food. I had to do this with our little guy we just got last week. breeder was out of food when we picked him up so i used ground beef and rice along with Fromm puppy and slowly lessened the bland diet till as of today, he is all puppy Fromm. Only one poo was very soft, other than that he was fine

    Its a great brand, one of mine was on the puppy and now I alternate between the adult six fish and regional red.

    Well it appears weve got to the bottom of the diarrhea. Georgia had her health check today and everything was perfect except she has a mild case of coccidia. The vet said its not uncommon and gave me some medication she has to take for 14 days. Its main said effect is diarrhea. So once we get rid of it Ill slowly introduce apples for treats again.
