That's what I think the issue is with Odie. If half kibble half ziwi doesn't work with Toby, just try kibble and see if his stools firm up. When I did this with Ode the first time, her diarrhea was gone in a day.

Yeah, I think I am just going to do straight kibble. On my way to the store now to find a kibble. I'm going to give the ZP to Rocky... My mom is thrilled- free food for a month for her chi, lol.

I truly think it is too rich for him. He's always had a sensitive tummy (my grandmas husband gave him a tiny piece of steak and he was sick for days, and dietary change is difficult for him). And he did fine on the homecooked chicken and rice- but I can't keep him on that log term, it isn't a balanced diet.

The pumpkin didn't work over the period of weeks I have it to him. The probiotics aren't working. I've tried two different meat sources. No parasites or bacterial issue. Only common denominator is the ZP.

Sounds just like my baby boy. Only thing that worked for him was Wellness Simple.

At least we have lots of great kibble options available here though! Lola has tummy issues too, she does the best on duck formulas (free game bird Fromm) and I don't remember if it is go! Or now! But they make a grain free small breed kibble that she did great on too. Just FYI. Let us know wht you pick love!

I hope he likes it! Bc Lola runs around squeaking her baby lamb chop at 6 am trying to wake us up to feed her Fromm!! It's so annoying!! Lol

Start off very slowly. Mix in the pumpkin and probiotics. Lots of small meals (3-4) would be better than 2 big meals. Try it for a week before you change anything. In other words try it for at least a week before deciding its not working.
