    Default Food change and diarrhea

    Hi. So Nora was on Merrick puppy formula since we got her in November. We have only been able to find chicken and rice puppy formula. I believe she is developing allergies because she has been chewing her paws and definitely does not suffer from any type of anxiety that I can tell. So I decided to go with Fromm. From what I read on this website, those who use Fromm love it. I feed her 3x a day 3/4 a cup each feeding. I am giving all but 1/8 a cup old and 1/8 a cup new and she has diarrhea. I added canned pumpkin to try and firm up her bm's a little. It doesn't seem like 1/8 a cup would be too quick a transition (this has been the last 4 meals). I don't want her to have diarrhea and get dehydrated but I also don't want to keep feeding her the grains and chicken longer than I have too. My vet doesn't want her on adult food until she is a year old. Should I put her on a bland diet for a few days and then try again? Sorry so long and thanks in advance!

    Yes. Bland diet can only help during the transition. Over cooked white rice and boiled ground beef will fix her up real quick

    You will love the results you see in her on the Fromm. She is beautiful!

    For me, her name was Abby

    Thanks for the reply. Should I mix the bland diet with the Fromm?

    No. You will want to keep her on the bland diet until her stool is firm and regular. Then you can jump right into full Fromm without any more tummy troubles.

    Make sure you get a Fromm without chicken..the surf n turf has chicken in it..I believe the beef Fritatta has beef and lamb.
