Default Orijen dilemma

When I first got my pup, I fed him Orijen large breed puppy. Everything was fine for a few weeks then he started to get diarrhea. I thought about changing foods and my vet kept stating that because we induced vomiting on the little guy when he ate something was the issue. We started him on Carafate to perhaps repair the **** the peroxide could have caused. The diarrhea stopped for a few days then returned. I went to a dog thing where they show case different foods at the Humane Society and talked with a few people. My vet was actually there. I talked with a few different people and decided maybe I need something give in addition to the food to help bind him up a bit since pumpkin did help slightly but still wasn't what I hoped. I got a few samples of food to test. Sojos helped bind him (and I don't give a lot of it, only a few tablespoons per meal).

I just wanted to let other people know what worked for me in the event they have the same issue. Most people probably think I should have just changed foods, but I wanted to avoid having food change sensitivity contribute to the issue.
