Sorry to hear about Max's illness. Have you been told that the diarrhoea is a side effect of the chemo or is this a separate issue? If due to the treatment, I think that if I was in your situation, I would be inclined not to mess around with his food at the moment. However If he is struggling to eat enough to maintain his weight, it might be worth considering one of the cold pressed foods like gentle or guru etc. The recommended amounts look quite small compared to other dried food so it might be easier for him to eat a little more. In my experience they have always been gentle on the digestive system too. Although not as high in meat content as some foods, the grain is a healthier brown rice. Some of the high meat content food can lead to diarrhoea especially if the portion is too big. Often a little trial and error period is necessary to get the right balance which may be hard on Max right now.
