    I was letting him free feed, about 2 cups total a day. then I actually read one of your articles about diarrhea and over feeding, which I mentioned to the vet as a possible factor to the diarrhea. So, she recommended 1 1/4 cups, divided up 3x a day. I felt that was too little so I went to about 1 3/4 divided up 3x a day and then the next day I realized I should listen to the vet. Last night I started on the bland diet for some gut rest for him. I’m only feeding him 1/2 a cup of boiled hamburger meat with rice and I plan on doing that 3x a day. Is this the right amount for a puppy or still too much?
    I plan to feed him the bland diet until his stools return to normal and I’m researching some foods that do not have sweet potatoes, since he has the yeast issues. I’m looking at Wellness Simple Recipes, but it’s not offered in a puppy formula. What would you recommend?

    Also, the vet did do a fecal test which came up negative for parasites. Would giardia have been detected in that test? He’s gaining weight and is active.

    Giardia has to be tested for specifically so you might want to call the vet and ask.

    Look at some of these foods.... Zingnature, Acana, Orijen, Earthborn Holistic, Fromm. They are top quality kibbles

    @AKbully, I personally find your brand has too much potatoes n peas. First ingredient is beef then 2 veggies then lamb. Proteins needs to be one behind each other and not in between. Potatoes n peas can give a belly gas. I keep reading all your comments and seems even the vet isnt sure what it is. If it was one of my dogs, now this is me I would put my dog on a fast (fasting) for 12-24 hrs. Dont worry they wont die of starvation. Must always have water at all times. This is a recipe I kept as one of my Doberman years ago had same issue as yours.

    Goes like this: After fasting, feed a bland diet. 1 part boiled, skinless, boneless chicken breast to 2 parts boiled rice (brown or white). Do not use any oil, salt, seasoning, or any other additives. Feed your dog very small portions 3-4 times a day for the next 5 days or so, gradually increasing the amount to their normal daily portion.

    Continue feeding the bland diet until your dog returns to normal, then add on a couple days. Gradually incorporate your dogs normal food. Start with normal food with chicken and rice, then and and so on, until youre feeding as usual again.

    You can also later add some yogurt since hes a pup. Go slowly!!!


    Your Kibble: Deboned Beef, Sweet Potatoes, Peas, Lamb Meal, Potatoes, Pork Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Pea Protein, Potato Protein, Natural Flavor, Salmon Oil, Deboned Salmon, Flaxseed Oil, Apples, Blueberries, Gelatin, Salt, Organic Dried Alfalfa Meal, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Minerals (Zinc Sulfate, Iron Amino Acid ...

    No, febendazole doesn't need a Rx. If changing the food to a better quality one at smaller amounts doesn't help, plus you can try adding canned pumpkin ( not the pie filling one ) and probiotics, then try the febendazole. https://www.amazon.com/Merck-Safegua...gateway&sr=8-3
