Sorry to misquote you on that one then Jill :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mole Many thanks I'll give the Wainwrights salmon and Potato a go in a couple of weeks once I know he's settled.
Marley is my first Labrador and my first puppy as I've always had rescue Collies before now so it a bit of a minefield :?

Diana Mole, as mentioned above, Skinners and wainwrights do a salmon and Potato puppy food which, for my rice intolerant dog has changed his gut imeasureably.

When a puppy has the runs it can take some time for the bowel to heal and reform and process stools effectively.

Hopefully you read the link posted on the previous page about a route to try and sort this out and taking steps down that route will help.

I'm sorry I thought you said you'd tried 3 or 4 different foods in almost as many weeks for some reason....

Nanna07 Hi

Minnie too struggles with rice products, yet is fine on Chappie original which has rice on it.

I would leave it a bit longer than a week if it was me, give him a chance to settle. I would stop everything else, treats, biscuits etc.

We turned to wainwrights salmon and potato they do a puppy, a tinned and treats so you can keep it all very similar. There tends to be a fish version in most ranges.

Mole Thanks all......I do understand about changing food but since he's had diarrhea on and off for over a month I figured that a change was due. As I've said the Chappie is working a treat so I'll leave him on that for another week then think about introducing a new food....but which one? I'm sure now that his upset tummy was due to the rice in his food but they all seem to have rice in them [img]

Diana Chris I hope maybe all of this or part of this post may help.

(Edited to say duh so sorry I forgot the link!)

Totally agree with above, at least a month to 6 weeks should be given on a new food before making a judgement on it. You so rarely see people actually DO that though. I am always stunned that food companies give out small sachets of trials of their food. Its almost guaranteed to give the receiving dog the runs! especially as most people are only changing food because something is not happy with the dogs tummy!!

Personally I see dry Chappie as not a good food at all, but like anything, some dogs with stomachs of iron can stomach it. The tinned Chicken and Rice meat I see as an occasional for upset stomachs short term or, like someone mentioned above an occasional extra to a fussy eater with a good solid quality complete dry food, rather than a means to an end on its own.

Personally.
