Q. Changed to a different grain free dog food. Within hours of change, Abby has diarrhea. Doing a mix of old and new food. Anything help with her tummy?

Answered By

A. If she has had more than a couple of episodes of diarrhea then you can try a pro biotic paste from your vet or pet store. If the diarrhea continues despite treatment or she shows any other symptoms then you should see your vet. You are doing the right thing by gradually changing food. Try and do it over 7-10 days.
