    Default Issues with loose stool, change food?

    My 10 month old Olde Engligh Bulldogge has had constant issues with loose stool & diarrhea from the get go. We first had him on TOTW High Prairie and his diarrhea never seemed to go away. We switched him to FROMM lamb and lentil about 2 months ago and it immediately got better, but a couple weeks ago it started to come back. He's also been on a no treat diet because of this for the last 2 months as well. I've been thinking of trying a different 4 star formula but thought I'd ask for advice here first.

    yes... cut back to maybe 1.25 each meal and see it it firms up.... you can also add a tablespoon of pure can pumpkin to help too.

    I've been wondering if cutting back would help. I will do so! We've done pumpkin in the past and will again if we have to, but it would be great to find a food that just worked!

    Agree - cut down - we fed 1 cup twice a day plus green beans when we were on kibble.

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Fromm is high quality so you do not have to feed as much... at a year you can probably cut back to 1 cup 2x a day

    You could add a probiotic to his food. When Winnie had loose stools, I started giving her Fortiflora in her morning meal every day and we haven't had a problem since.
