    Did the vets do any fecal analysis to look for internal parasites or giardia? How bad is the diarrhea? Is it liquid, foamy or soft serve?

    its soft serve but sometimes liquid. I have taken her to the vet and they have done afecal analysis. They said everything looked fine and gave me some type of meds to firm up her stool ... no luck.

    When you switch foods, are you switching slowly or just doing a straight switch? Sorry I keep posting more questions....

    yes i mixed food for awhile before going straight new dog food and she has been on the bulldog royal canin for about a month and a half now still the same ... ive tried wellness and royal canin so far.. first was royal canin puppy... that didnt work so i went to wellness fish diet .. still no luck.. so then my vet informed me that i could start giving her adult food when she was 7months old so then i switched to royal canin bulldog formula ... still no luck.

    had this issue with my Beefy when we got him until last week. I switched him back to By Nature Salmon becuase it has NO CHICKEN and this is the only one his tummy can tolerate. I also added Yams to his morning and dinner meal. I also give a probiotic/enzyte daily and pumpkin and thankfully this week. No DIARRHEA. Try adding yams and a probiotic/enzyte supplement hopefully that will help and check the ingrediants for any type of chicken because even when the main ingrediant isnt chicken and most dogs can tolerate it sum cannot

    Yes I was also going to suggest trying a grain free food with no chicken in it. Fromm has the enzymes and probiotics in writing, I have had great success so far with the Beef Fritatta, you can get it online from Carolina pet pantry with free shipping!! Www.carolinapetpantry.com

    We use the Royal Canin 32 Medium Puppy since we recieved Winston at 9 wks, he is almost 7 months now, and what i noticed was that his stool was soft and drippy in the begining, but a few weeks in and he was having more solid stools. Now all his stools are solid, and we have had no other heath problems, his coat is soft and shiny and his tear staining is minor. I was conserned also intinially, but the vet said his stool was fine. I would say unless it is causing other health problem and unless he can't hold it to get outside, give it a few weeks and see if it hardens up.

    Jozi is switching from Iams to
    Taste of The Wild right now. She
    is doing very well so far. I have read
    on here and even the lady at the pet
    food store suggested putting canned
    pumpkin in her food. If you try this make
    sure that you get 100% pumpkin,and not
    pumpkin pie filling.

    Gertie did this when she was about 4 1/2 mos. old. She wasn't switching foods. I took her in for a complete going over, nothing wrong. I did a bland diet and vanilla Activia for about a week and she was fine.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
