Default Diarrhea again... Could it be the water? Travel?

Toby's been on Fromm for over a month and he's doing great. However, since Sunday he's had some loose stools. Today it is diarrhea rather than just "mushy". I'm concerned- could it be the water here? He was fine the whole time we were in Florida and he was eating the same food. Could it be from travel? We got home Saturday- I have no ideas why he's doing this. Any ideas?

It could be the water there.. Or maybe he just has a sensitive stomach? Penny is like that, she gets diarrhea randomly for what seems like no reason. Do you give him a probiotic daily even if he is feeling fine?

I'm sorry Ashley to hear about Toby's tummy troubles again! I just wanted to say that I hope he feels better soon!

Maybe you should try bottle water to see. Maybe he ate something when he escaped in the plane?

Or he just hate NC and wants to go back to Flordia and that's the way he's showing it! (Just kidding!)

It could possibly be something in the water that is different in NC to Florida. I'd say it's more likely down to the stress if travelling and being without his canine pals and extended family. I know that because Mylo has a sensitive tummy too stressful situations can leave him with a bit of upset. Hopefully he'll be better in a few days. Trying bottled water to be sure could be a good idea though. Good luck. Hope Toby feels better soon. I know how frustrating and worrying this can be! Hugs to you both!

Aww poor munchkin, not again!
It can definitely be the stress of travel.
I hope he feels better asap Ashley!

I was thinking same thing. Try filtered water but I also think it was the stress of traveling and maybe even missing his FL family.

Thanks guys. I started him on bottled water last night. He is on probiotics daily, even when he is well. I'm hoping its from traveling and me going back to school- he's a bit upset. Hopefully he will be better soon. I just feel bad for him- it can't be pleasant. But he seems to be in good spirits and plays. So fingers crossed!
