Thanks, I was planning all of this but the more frequent, small meals. Makes sense though. I will give him 3 smaller meals per day.

Hope everything returns to normal! It sounds like he's exactly like Ode. I bet once he's eating just kibble he won't have any issues. We didn't even need to give any pumpkin or do a slow switch. It was 100% the ziwi. Too bad, because it's such a great food.

It does sound the same as what he went through. It is a shame because it is such a great food. But I guess it's not so great for our babies. Rocky is doing great on it- my mom says he has never looked better! It really depends on the dog. I would still 100% recommend it to try- just because it is too rich for Toby doesn't mean it isn't an excellent food!

Ashley make sure the probiotics are dairy free some dogs cannot tolerate it and can cause the stools problems what is the brand

Ashley,

2 of my chis are doing great on ziwipeak. My 3rd one used to be fine eating it and then she started having diarrhea, losing weight and fur. It was so stressful to see her like that. I put her on THK zeal, embark and some cooked meat. She is doing very well and is on her way to her usual self again. I think ziwipeak is too rich for her but my other chis have never looked better. Every dog is different. I hope you find the right food for Toby soon.

We started Fromm today. I waited until after my final yesterday in case he got sick from it so I wouldn't be up all night with him right before a final. Now I have until Tuesday before my next final for him to hopefully adjust. He had 1/8 cup of Fromm mixed with some chicken and rice for both breakfast and dinner. And we had solid poo. Not that it means much, I've gotta give it at least a week to see how it works. Just wanted to provide an update!
