    Default Fromms puppy pink causing diarrhea

    My puppy has been on fromms puppy in the pink bag for a few weeks now and his stool is very soft and has been. At first the vet said he had a parasite which we knocked out, then he had protozoas which we knocked out with a antibiotic but he has still got soft stool. He has grown a ton and seems happy I'm just worried that his stool is still soft. I've added a lil pumpkin to firm it up which has helped but I'm just wondering when I should consider switching foods

    Any chance you are over feeding him? How much does he eat per day and how old is he?

    That sounds about right, but if he's not doing solid bowel movement just try back it up by a little bit, do 1/3 cup for his meals today and see if the stools improve. It's amazing how even a tiny portion of food can cause such bad squirts in a puppy his age!

    Hi, it may be the chicken, as many bullies are allergic or sensitive to chicken. I don't think he's eating too much as most puppies eat 1 cup of kibble 3 times a day, but it may be the protein?

    Yes. It has duck and chicken in it.

    I use the Fromm Prairie Gold Puppy... it is red meat -- no chicken. But, also need to make sure you are not over feeding as Lisa stated --- how much do you feed with each meal?

    We've been feeding 1/2 cup 3x a day, will be cutting back to 1 1/3 total a day and see what happens. Have been putting a small amount of pumpkin in to firm him up some

    Here is a chart to help as a guideline and at 10 wks, I would think he should be OK at 1/2, but try 1/3 and see if it helps

    8 weeks 1/2 cup 3 times a day
    12 weeks 2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    4 & 5 months 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    6 months to 1 year 1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day

    Ya, I don't think it's necessarily the amount, but could be wrong. I will finish out the bag and see how he does and at that point may switch to a different fromms
