I've had Bear for about 2 months now and he has had diarrhea on and off since we picked him up from the breeder. I've taken him to the vet and he has been tested for parasites each time coming up negative. He was treated for Giardia just in case it was not presenting in the samples. He's been on antibiotics and special food. The only think that seems to work is the I/D prescription diet. He is otherwise very healthy and an extremely happy and adorable pup! He's growing and a good weight.
I was wondering if anyone's puppy has experienced food allergies or a sensitive tummy?
You may want to try out something along the lines of Nature's variety raw medallions. I've found that many dogs seem to digest it better than kibble. My two guys are fed raw.
Have you tried Innova for puppies? Remember when switching over to a new kibble you should do it over the course of 5-10 days. Some dogs may even take longer. I would give it at least 3-4 weeks on the new food once you've made the switch complete.

and take a look at some of the 5 or 6 star foods. Hills rats a 1-2.
The ingredients of the Hills is just horrible. Ethoxyquin is very bad... cancer causing. Look it up.
