Type of dry food

I have rescued a Pyrenees that has developed a very loose stool and after deworming and a course of antibiotics it is still loose.
The next trial is amount of dry dog food per day, then what type is best for him.
At present he's on Authority Puppy and was doing well.
Any good suggestions?
Thanks Graham

Food
by: Donna

Many of us feed raw diet. Kibble is a very processed food.

If you are interested:

That doesn't solve your present issue. It could be anything.

That said, have you tried boiled hamburger with rice for a few days? Try this. Boil the burger and drain it to get rid of grease. Mix with more rice than burger at the start and gradually increase the rice. Also try adding a couple of tbsp. of pure pumpkin. Not pie filling.

If none of this works, it's time for some more testing.

Here is some good information for you:

Stool
by: Anonyymous

Have you had a stool sample check for parasites? If the puppy has giardia or cocsiddia a wormer will not take it out. Also make sure the food you are using is grain free and especially corn free. As for me, I have had a lot of luck with taste of the wild bison flavor as my base and I add 13 ounces of white meat chicken. Good luck.

Dog food that worked for me
by: Michelle

I go to Petsmart and they will return any item that is open and eaten. We finally decided on Blue Buffalo large breed sensitive stomach for Russell. No more loose stools. On saturday, he sits by the stove and wants a scrambled egg on top. Weird.

He gets no treats (doesn't care for them) and this solved the problem.
Blue Buffalo has coupons at the register at times.
He is not a big eater but I divide the food up for breakfast and dinner. It took him a long time to let us watch him eat. We would have to leave the room for him to eat. Sometimes, I would let him out and he would just eat his meal on the porch. It has taken us 5 months to sort out his quirks but he is totally worth it.
