Ok so I tried Orijen, loose stools didn't like it, acana same, now he has faucet diarrhea what to do. I went back to the original Nutro Ultra he was on at the breeders to let his stomach settle. Never had such problems with food before with any puppy! This is the vets fault for wanting him on Iams which started this mess. Oh and last night he threw up in his crate, I'm sure he ate something else that did not agree with him. Ugh

I'm sure it will get Balon back together.

A lot of quick food transitions can also cause serious tummy trouble. I hope you can help get Balon's tummy settled with a bland diet!

First thanks so much for all the help you guys have been thus far, like I said I have never had a puppy with so many tummy troubles. I just feel so bad for him. Balon eats like a pig, he eats 1 cup of kibble three times a day and I mean he eats it! When we first got him unfortunately he had roundworms, so that was quite a problem, he even threw up live ones which was totally gross! He was wormed an additional two times even after testing negative for all parasites. I keep wondering if all that worming threw him off balance. He also tested negative for giardia (sp) and he doesn't interact with other dogs except my Ruby and I know she is healthy. I actually had him on chicken and rice and even that didn't clear him up. I did read Claudia's comments, and may have to try her egg one, are the eggs scrambled first?

Now I just got home from work and my son said the poo is a bit thicker today, so that is progress Embarassed

I agree, I tried Orijen literally like 20 pieces mixed into a cup of food and he eat everything but the Orijen, so doubtful that was it, same with Acana, he just ate around the few pieces lol.

I scrambled mine when I was doing the egg diet with Ghost. That fixed her tummy problems in a matter of a couple of days. Good luck!

Well Balon just ate his meal of 3/4 cup green beans and 1 scrambled egg and let's just say he ate it all! hunger is not his problem lol and it is the first time he growled and barked when Ruby went to see what was in his bowl, of course I took that as a learning lesson and kept removing the bowl, waiting for a sit/shake putting it back. Then I fed him piece by piece (NILF) he never growled at her before funny over eggs and green beans lol.

Trying too many foods too fast can definitely cause some problems.

Both of mine have sensitive tummies and one was diagnosed with IBS (they wanted to put him on Prednisone for life and a vet prescription food). I kept him on Orijen and refused to put him on medication for life. I use some probiotics from time to time and if / when either has diarrhea I use this product (works amazingly well for us): http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/products/perfect-form/

unfortunately the egg/green bean diet only helped a little, he is still pretty mushy, and he threw up the green beans 3 times.
