Thanks, Dottie. That’s very helpful and chimes with my own instincts! Phew...

Hi, everyone!

Background: I changed my rescue pointer/brittany cross on to raw back in spring and it suits him perfectly. Natural Instinct complete (various flavours). Bones or a kong filled with Nature’s Menu nuggets as well.

So: I have just adopted a second dog - a brittany. He is an absolute doll and I would like to change him over to raw. His foster was feeding him half tinned Pedigree and half Wagg Worker kibble. Ever since I got him home his poos have been loose. Not exactly diarrhoea but not far off. He is scheduled for a vet visit tomorrow anyway, but I would appreciate some advice. Should I wait for his poos to firm up before changing him over to raw, or start the transition straight away? Or should I treat this as a real upset stomach (rather than a natural one due to change and stress) and put him on chicken and rice or Chappie for a few days and then proceed to raw?

Many thanks, Dottie, both for the welcome and the advice. The vet has prescribed antibiotics and has sent off the sample. We'll see!

Dog foods / Advice needed - changing to Eden kibble
« on: Nov 29, 2018, 22:02 »
Asking for some advice!

The dog: Hector, a male brittany/pointer cross, almost 9 months. VERY food-oriented and will eat anything, whether or not it agrees with him. I rescued him just over 2 months ago. Loads of energy.

The background: About a month ago, Hector had a nasty stomach upset - he was on Royal Canin Puppy Medium at the time. Once he was better, I started to change him over to Eden Original kibble, as I had planned to do before the stomach upset got in the way. I’ve been doing it very gradually and he is now getting about 50% Eden and 50% Royal Canin. He is skinny - not underweight, but only just - and is continuing to put weight on well. He is fed twice a day - 0730 and 1800. He gets a Kong (frozen kibble only) and a fair number of treats on top of his food allowance.

The problem: For the last few days, the morning poo has been fine but there have been several runny poos during the day. Could it be another stomach upset? The new food disagreeing with him? Should I consider reducing his food allowance?

Thanks in advance, everyone!
