I've been wondering the same thing. Although my chi doesn't have diarhea, she's having the stomach issues, gas, unsettled. My problem is that I don't know what else I'd be able to feed her because she's so limited to what she can have & right now I'm afraid to change; that it could cause more problems.

I truly don't think it's the food because its on and off. I'm wondering if he is getting into something although I don't know what that could be.

I'm with you on this. It would be odd for the ziwi to be affecting him all of a sudden, without something else going on. With Odie, her diarrhea started 2 weeks after switching to ziwi, so I knew that it was likely that there was a connection. I wonder if he just has some kind of stomach bug?

There MUST be something in the air lately; as Kahlua has had tummy issues lately too. So far I've been treating symptomatically (a tiny dose of Pepto) and am praying it's just a bug that needs to run it's course. Her poos have been normal, that's the weird thing. She just seems gassy/unsettled. Anyway obviously not any advice, but wanted to send some healthy vibes Toby's way. They make us worry so much, don't they? =(

Do you take him out much? Dogs get stomach bugs just like people do. I would try pepto and fluid only for a day or so.

Yeah. I called the vet and they reopen on Saturday. I made an appointment and I will cancel it if he feels better. I think it's something going around, it seems like many of us are dealing with it. I just feel bad he's sick.

Good luck with Toby. I hope you can get it figured out. It does seem weird that he was better and now feeling bad again. I agree maybe he is getting into something. I notice my two have their noses down in the dirt and leaves a lot lately. They seem to be finding something to eat.

IF your pup seems OK on mixing the ziwipeak and kibble, then I wouldn't increase him to total ziwipeak. It seems that it is too rich alone.
