Tummy trouble
 
Hello All,

We recently adopted a beautiful male approximately 2 years old. When he came from the shelter, his bowel movements were fine. He was eating some Science Diet, and we tried transitioning that with our food, 4 health. Seems as if it doesn't agree, we went back to feeding him rice, chicken and some pumpkin. Things are getting somewhat better, but when I try to put some dry food in again, things tend to get worse. Any suggestions for a fella with a sensitive tummy....Thanks

maybe the 4 health doesn't agree with him. switch brands.
what kind of pumpkin are you feeding? a Vet visit maybe in
order.

We're going to the met next week for a check up and I will speak with him about it. I am feeding the pure pumpkin that you buy in the grocery store.

Sounds like he needs a good Digestive Enzyme/Probiotic!
Here are two great ones! Both are Human Grade ingredients
Sunday Sundae:
Sunday Sundae Nutritional Supplement

Digest All Plus: The Wholistic Pet

Forgot to mention that whatever treats you are using could also give him gut troubles.;)
