Re: puppy diarrhea

Re: 4 Health Dog Food

I'm aware that better foods exist, but as for the quality for the amount I'm paying for I think it is a winner. TOTW and Wellness are both really good foods, but also I a lot more expensive (at least 15 bucks for a same size bag). In a perfect world I would love to feed my dog one of those but In my...

Re: 4 Health Dog Food

The fat seems about right for the protein level.. what are the ingredients? I think I've seen this as one of the new foods at Pet supplies plus. I've heard a few people feeding it. I know taste of the wild is higher protein and a really decent price.. not sure how they price or ingredient compair.....

4 Health Dog Food

Has anyone on here fed their dog 4 Health Brand dog food? I'm in the process of changing my dog over to it because I was told his current food was a bit low in protein. The nutrition values of the puppy food seem to meet the requirements that were suggested to me by someone on here. Here is a few: C...

Re: puppy diarrhea

So I'm putting Tank of the rice and hamburger diet for a week. It yesterday by fasting all day and boy did he not like that. Today I did a 80/20 split of rice and hamburger and I believe he enjoyed that. I fed him 4 small meals which equaled to almost one daily feeding he normally would have had. I ...

Re: puppy diarrhea

I'm thinking about switching to the Blue Buffalo brand of commercial food after I can get this diarrhea under control. Eventually I would like to put him on a RAW diet but I'm waiting for him to get his adult teeth in and matured. I personally think a natural diet is more beneficial anyways. I would...

Re: puppy diarrhea

Yeah I was told the same thing about the Large Breed puppy food by the vet. Both parents are over 50lbs so I'm assuming (which I hate to do) he will be over 50lbs as well. I think I'm gonna go with this rice and chicken diet for a days to see if that helps. It's just odd cause every once in a while ...

Re: puppy diarrhea

He's eating Natures Recipe Large Breed puppy food. Its protein percentage is right around 22 which might be a bit too high for him. I'm giving just under the the suggested amount because I read somewhere that overfeeding can cause some problems. He has access to fresh water whenever he wants and has...

puppy diarrhea

So I picked up my puppy last Wednesday from out of state. The person I bought him from gave me enough food to last for 3 days so I had to switch up his more rapidly then I had hope for. Well starting Friday he has had mostly runny stools. Out of all the bathroom trips in a day, only one is a hard st...

Re: early pregnancy health problems

Yeah she's on a pretty good puppy food. When she is done nursing I would like to transition her into a adult formula. She seems to be going back to her old ways but I wasn't too certain any other complications I should be aware of. I assume this might affect her growth and she might not reach her fu...

early pregnancy health problems

I just wondering how detrimental early breeding is to the overall health of a dog. I took in a foster who was pregnant at the time. She just turned one shortly after she had a litter on 8 pups. 3 of the dogs passed away and the other 5 are healthy 3 week old puppies. The mother has become increasing...
