Q. If pup allergic to something in her food and I switch to veggie food how long to make diahrrea go away What is a good brand try She is on bluebuffallo

Answered By

A. I forgot to mention that you should slowly transition from your old food (blue buffalo) to the new food you decide to switch to.. or you should slowly switch to it by adding it here and there to the white meat chicken and rice mix you are feeding your pup to settle his tummy. The slow transition will help your pups tummy EASE into the change.

A. Do not switch to feeding only vegetables to your dog.. dogs cannot digest vegetables that are not pureed, so it would basically be like eating nothing. Typically when a pup has an upset tummy, vets recommend feeding a little bit of white meat chicken and rice, maybe with a little bit of LOW SALT or UNSALTED broth until their tummy settles.

Blue Buffalo is an alright food. Taste of the Wild is a good kibble. Orijen is a pretty good kibble too.. research them. I feed my pup Ziwipeak http://ziwipeak.com/ which is a very pricey, air-dried raw food diet. It is an absolutely fantastic food to feed your pup, so if price isn't really an issue, I'd try Ziwipeak. There is nothing artificial, and it's typically great for picky dogs, or dogs with allergies.
