I have a 1 yr old cockapoo who seems to have a bit of a dodgy gut.
When he came home at 8 weeks we tried to move him from Gusto puppy to Acana, and he got colitis.
Vet said Acana was too high in protein for his system, he did a day of starvation and then moved onto steamed cod and sweet potato mash, and he improved.
We then went onto Wainwrights grain free and he wasn't much better, so searched for a food that had fish and potato and ended up on Fish4Dogs.
He then turned a corner, his poop improved and the first of the day was solid, getting more soft each time, especially when he was being exercised.
Then he decided he didn't want to eat it, so we tried wetting it which worked for a week or two, again the refusal, so we added wet meat, after a few months he refused that too regardless of flavour, we used Forthglade grain free wet meat.
He is now on Barking Heads TLC, and again its been really good, he really seems to enjoy the taste, but now we are finding that he seems starving after eating and the poops are poor again, especially after exercise.
So I'm now thinking of changing foods again and I feel stuck.
I don't want to try raw again, we tried that before the Barking Heads and he cried and fussed and refused to touch it.
Does anyone have any advice?
Should he be grain free? Should I choose a recipe that's high in meat or lower in meat? which meats tend to suit sensitive tums? brown rice? oats?
I'm in a spin!
Thanks in advance
