    Rocco was getting diarrhea when he was on Kirland Signature Chicken flavor (that's the brand the breeder had only she had them on beef and only chicken was available at Costco by me). Like as soon as the food flavor was switched the stool instantly was soft. Vet also gave me meds for deworming although test came back negative. We fed him rice and chicken for a few days and it did harden up. Once he started on that kibble again, it softened again. I think he cannot handle the chicken flavored kibble, because regular boiled chicken seemed to be fine for him. I switched him to Fromm's Beef Frittata about a month ago and have had no problems since.

    If he isn't eating the meat and rice, try adding some chicken or beef broth (organic, low sodium) to it so it has more flavoring. That is what we've been doing for years with our dogs.

    However, I have heard canned pumpkin (not the pie filling type) help cures it within hours...

    My bullie puppy just got a case of the poops too because he gobbled some of the big dog food and I actually read this article minutes ago:

    When we had just got Castor he had tummy problems and our vet recommended small portions of round-grain rice cooked in plenty of water (so that you can serve some 'rice water' too) with some ground meat or chicken. That worked well here.

    We ran into a similar issue with Loki where it seemed over night he started getting the poops and shedding really bad. turned out he was allergic to the food that he was one for almost a year. The grain and Chicken/Beef all of s sudden didn't sit well. Bland diet as recommended above then slowly back to kibble is all that you can really do at this point.

    Purchase fortiflora. Bullies do not produce their own flora in the gut which could be part of the ongoing diarrhea. ItIis considered a probiotic. Sprinckle half package in each meal. Kaopectate 1 tlbs every four hours as needed. Until stool is firm. Plenty of water during the episodes.

    Oh Bless his heart!!! That bland diet seems to be what he needs right now. I make all of Sheldon's treats he doesn't get ANY store bought treats and if we go out I bring a bag of home made treats with me to give to people who want to give him a treat that way I know what he is getting. I will be praying for both you and Bentley!!! HUGS to you both!

    Also keep in mind that it won't necessarily get better over night - it will be "soft serve" for a few days and slowly start firming. Just don't try introducing too many things to make it stop - it could cause more issues...
