thx. but that is what i was doing and i guess something in the satin balls doesnt do well with him. I was feeding him them a week ago not mixed in kibble and he had diarrhea again and loose stool for 2 days after. I think im going to stick with just his kibble and maybe some beef or chicken broth and get him to vet asap.

Im feeding him authority lamb and rice it is petsmarts brand. Had tried nutro natural choice grain free before that and he was on some kind of purina at previous house.

doggiedad i think you should take him to the Vet. when you go take a stool
sample and urine sample. i would have blood work done.

what are you feeding your dog? he may not like what you're
feeding him. don't feed your dog cream of chicken soup.
if you buy chicken broth or beef broth make sure there's
no salt added. you can make chicken broth. boil a whole
chicken for the broth an feed your dog some fresh chicken.

here's some toppings i use on his kibble:

sliced apples and pears (no seeds).
chicken broth, beef broth.
fresh beef, fowl and fish.
blueberries.
extra virgin salmon oil (human grade).
organic yogurt.
ground flax seed.
a variety of can food. sometimes i feed
him a can of food.
raw egg.

pressure cooked chicken. mash the bones.
you can mash the bones with a spoon or
your fingers. mash the chicken for a better yeild.
makes three quarts with water added. freeze 2
quarts. i give him a couple of hefty spoon fulls
on his kibble.

JakodaCD OA the broths are good in a pinch, but they contain alot of salt. And yes, having different things to eat could very well give him diarhea.

Angela gave some good ideas above, as well,, boiled chicken, (use that broth), maybe some tuna in water/canned? Cat food? ...

I think you need to have a vet visit, discuss your concerns and go from there

Angelina03 I always mix a little bit of deer meat (cooked plain) into Rocco's kibble. He loves it and eats it every time. Lean ground beef works too. When we run out of deer meat, I sometimes use eggs or plain white rice. Those works too, though he much prefers the deer meat.

JakodaCD OA I would still have a vet check him out.

His previous owners may have said he was wormed/up to date, but did you get his vet records to prove it? Not saying they are lying by any means. I would still have him re checked for possible worms.

It's good he's eating, but I agree trying something else. If you are looking to add to his dry food, get some good canned dog food , see how that goes.

Maybe he's just settling in, feeling kinda depressed leaving a home he knew?

my boy diesel chicken soup is loaded with sodium, try just a high quality dog food, by high quality i mean real meat, not soy or corn or wheat, good luck!

pitmanr2003 He loves the satin balls. But they are a pain to make for big dog and not what I would call inexpensive.

pitmanr2003 Try water and cream of chicken soup. Its cheap and he loves it
