Zola is 17 weeks today.
Two weeks ago, I decided to switch her from Acana puppy kibble to a raw food diet, after noticing a rash on her stomach/armpits (and reading a lot about different diets).
Since I suspected her to be allergic to chicken and it is suggested to start a raw diet with white meat, we started with "Naturally Raised Whole Pork with Grass Fed Beef Tripe". It went super well and her stools got a lot smaller, hard, and less smelly than with the kibble. She loooved it, her fur got shiny, she seemed happier, all the good stuff. At the same time I've been treating her rash with a shampoo the vet prescribed. After 9 days we finished the pork box and when we returned to the raw food store they suggested she switches to beef. They said I didn't have to introduce it slowly. I still bought 2 pork patties and gradually introduced the beef from Sunday lunch time, but maybe not gradually enough because she got explosive diarrhea on Monday night. On tuesday morning her stools were basically water so I returned to the raw food store and they suggested I go back to pork right away as she might be intolerant to beef.
She's only been having pork since lunch yesterday, she seemed to be doing better, but in the last 3 hours she went out 3 times with very loose stools.
Is she reacting to the pork? Or is it the remains of the beef?
She seemed to be absolutely starving after the diarrhea episodes tonight, was restless and kept going to the freezer for more food so I gave her a pork bone that has meat on it, and a bit of pork bone broth.
I used to feed white rice to my dogs when they would get diarrhea but I'm reading all those things about not mixing cooked foods in a raw food diet ... thoughts?
Also her rash (diagnosed as puppy pyoderma) seems to be controlled by the medicated shampoo but wants to come back as soon as I don't bathe her for 24h, and it seems to have gotten worse when I gave the beef for a day. I ordered a dog allergy test kit online hoping to avoid the 1200$ the dog dermatologist wants to charge me and am sticking to pork until I get results but in the mean time ... is it ok to only give her raw pork and pork bones/chews/treats for 3 whole weeks?
