A. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. Feed a good quality food with named protein sources. No meat meals or by products.. Stay away from discount or store brands. These types of diets typically contain low quality ingredients and more fillers which may result in more frequent defecation and loose stool. .
