Please help -Diarrhea
My 11 week puppy started having diarrhea on Sunday. I did not change his food and he did not get into anything. I contacted the individual that we purchased the puppy from, as he had stated to do so if the pup started having diarrhea. He provided a few suggestions for us, including giving the puppy some plain rice, or plain yogurt. He also suggested 2cc's of Pepto Bismol.
My family decided to try some plain rice and that seemed to help; however, when we started reintroducing the puppy food that the owner had provided us he started having diarrhea again. I am starting to wonder if perhaps the food (Nutrience Natural) that the breeder had the pup on is not good for him. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? Am I able to feed my puppy rice and then introduce chicken and other foods into his diet? Do you think that perhaps it is the puppy food that is causing the issue? The puppy had been dragging his butt on the floor since he brought him home even though he had had all of his initial shots and everything. Although he didn't have diarrhea from the start, he did have loser stools on and off from the start, but we didn't think it was concerning then, but maybe it is the food?
Any help, suggestions, feedback would be greatly appreciated.
