Default Solid Gold Wolf Cub Problems

Hey everyone!

I got my puppy about 3 weeks ago. He is full blooded and wonderful!

The breeder had him on puppy chow so I wanted to switch that quickly. We decided on solid gold wolf cub and slowly weaned off puppy chow.

At first his stool was fine but after a week of only wolf cub his stool is very loose and sometimes watery. He poops several times a day.

For those that used this brand, how long did your pups stomach take to adjust to solid gold? Does anyone have tips on what I should do next?

Thanks!!

He is young they can dehydrate easily. I would go back to what breeder was feeding or add half of puppy chow half solid gold stay at that for a week then less puppy chow for a week. Do a slower change it can take weeks to switch completely. Add some plain pure pumpkin to help with watery stools

Is it possible you are over feeding?

He weighed 21 lbs at last checkup and is now 14 weeks. I would say he's probably gained 5 lbs since our last checkup. We go again at the end of the month.

The food chart says for his age and weight he should get 3 1/3- 4 1/3 cups daily and he gets 1 1/2 cup per meal.

Try cutting back on food each meal maybe do 1 cup 3 times a day. See how he does.

I just got my boy and the breeder had him on Kirkland puppy food. I changed cold turkey to Wolf Cub, mostly because he wouldn't eat the puppy food anyway! He didn't want to eat the Wolf Cub either but now I put a spoon of cottage cheese in the food and mix it really well. He eats now but this morning he left some in the bowl. He is not a big eater! He is 12 weeks, his last check up was a week before I got him and he weight 23 pounds. I will have him in to the vet in 2 weeks and see. I give him one cup three times a day. His poo is fine so far! He had watermelon (my daughter had it and shared!) yesterday and now has a duck foot today so we shall see how all that goes!
I am pleased so far because he was itching soooo bad when I got him and now he has stopped that is the other reason I changed foods. It has help a bunch! No more itchy puppy!

Have you had his stool checked for coccidia or Giardia? My pup had coccidia at 9 weeks and now again at 8 months. They checked his stool last week they didn't see anything. Checked this past Friday and there it was. Digestive enzymes help and pure pumpkin for loose stools.
