    Bowser is still on his bland food diet and he poos once a day and it is very little but at least it is solid. Should I feed him more often than kibble? I'm feeding him 3 times a day right now.

    On a side note, I think I may switch him to raw when he gets better.

    That's wonderful! He's pooping less because he's eating bland. No fillers like kibble. You could add one more feeding (4th) if you feel he's hungry.

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    So I've been feeding Bowser the bland diet for almost a week and his stools have improved and become solid. So I decided last night to start mixing in his kibble with the bland food to see if he was ready to switch back. Well today he's had 1 solid stool and 1 very soft, liquidy stool.

    I don't know what it is because he's been on Fromm all stages since I brought him home. His first bag was the surf and turf and he is now on beef frittata. He finished half the bag of beef frittata already so I didn't think it was the switch in favor. I feed him 1 cup 3 times a day so I didn't think I was over feeding him.

    I don't know what it could be and I don't want him to suffer through any more diarrhea. Should I just go to the vet in the morning?

    I'm thinking the diarrhea reappearance is from feeding him the kibble. Maybe he still needs to be on bland for a few more days. I have been feeding Tate bland for a good 10 days and this a.m. was the 1st time i gave him 1/2 bland, 1/2 kibble. I was also adding pure pumpkin into his food every day. Did u do the pumpkin? i found that it helps a lot.

    agree with Henny --- add a little pure pumpkin during the transition back, also cut back the kibble just a bit too, even as little as 1/8 less of a cup can make a difference
