    Default Still Has Diarrhea Please Help

    Hey guys. Im worried about Bentley. He has had soft stool, border line diarrhea, from about the time we switched his food from Royal Canin to Blue Buffalo chicken and brown rice puppy kibble three weeks ago. I cut back on his kibble to about 2 cups a day thinking i was over feeding him. Been about three weeks and stool hadnt hardned up so we treated for diarreah. Water for about 24hrs to help "flush" him out. Next day I boiled 1 cup of white rice with two cups of water and 1 chicken breast shredded with about 1/4 cup peas and carrots, and a fresh bowl of bottled water. About an hour later we take him for a walk and he pooped A LOT LESS than usual but also SOFTER than he had been pooping. Is this a good sign or should I be trying something else....? Please help.
    (btw he recieved his rabies vaccine one week ago)

    You probably already answered this before, but have you has his poo checked for parasites?

    Hi - when Oliver was younger he was on Blue Buffalo and also had diarrhea. We were told that Blue Buffalo can sometimes be too rich for a puppy's belly, especially if he has a sensitive stomach. We ended up switching to Nature's Recipe and a grain-free diet. A couple of tablespoons of canned pumpkin (plain - you can find it in the baking aisle at the grocery store) definitely helps bind them up. Sometimes one day of rice and boiled chicken isn't long enough. If the diarrhea is yellow-ish and mucous-like (sorry to be gross), it could be a case of colitis.

    BUT, make sure he is checked for parasites also in case it isn't food related.

    Also, if you only gave him water for 24 hours, eating anything might still give him diarrhea after being so empty.

    We've had 2 bullies and both had what the vet described as "soft serve" stool, as its consistency was like soft serve ice cream. We tried multiple puppy foods with both and both cleared up after we started on adult food. I'm assuming the higher fat content in puppy food is too difficult for our bullies unique digestive systems

    Ok so first thing is to get him off off the BB and continue the rice and chicken for a few more days. He already has an appt. for the vet on Saturday so will have them check the stool. colitis sounds scary! Hoping not the case :-(

    I would also start adding a tablespoon of pumpkin (remember, not the pie filling, pure pumpkin) to his rice and chicken each feeding. Pumpkin is the wonder food, works for constipation and diarrhea

    Hello. I hope by now it is getting better. Rupert is our 6 month old bulldog. He gets loose stools if he is feed to much and if we give him to many treats. We have switched to only high quality treats and we do feed him blue buffalo dry puppy food. I tried to introduce some canned wet food as a change and treat..and little Rupert had loose stools again.

    I would still check with your vet, but try that. I was also told to add canned sweet potato to his food for loose stools too. I did not really see any difference with that.

    good luck!

    Update. 2nd day on boiled rice and chicken with veggies and he absolutely loves it! He's more playful now and even wants to run when we go outside, lol. So funny. Well he finally pooped and it was firm! Yay!! Thinking maybe his body is absorbing this food better. Anyway, When I cut back his food he seemed a little thin to me. I'm starting to think that maybe he just doesn't do well on the BB. Definitely switching food. Does Fromm get the most votes ??? Lol
