After Timber's parvo and Coccidia, I swore up and down that I never wanted to see diahhrea again!!!
After all of that vetenary hoopla, I wanted to get Timber on something that would really help boost his immune system. So, I decided to put him on Wellness 5. My vet's office sells Canidae and Orijin. I had picked up brochures for both. At that point, I couldnt stop thinking about the Orijin. The only kind she had was the one for all life stages with fish. Boy, does that smell delicious!
So, we started making our transition. Everything went pretty smoothly except for the last part of the transition. I gave Timber a couple of days of 3/4 cup Orijin and 1/4 cup of the Wellness. The minute I bumped it up to a full cup of Orijin with no Wellness is when the poo poo trouble began. His poops went from finally being wonderful little turds to soft turds, to pudding like poo, to diahhrea. Ugh!!! Great, MORE diahhrea!
When that didnt clear up after a couple days, I bumped him back down to the 3/4 cup Orijin & 1/4 cup Wellness. I got his poop back to soft turds but its still not right. It starts out as soft turds and towards the end, turns to diahhrea. Some poops may be like that and some may be a little more regular. One can never tell.
Someone please, please help. Should I take him off the Orijen and just stick with Wellness? I was starting to think he pooped less on the Orijin and it didnt stink as bad.
He gets fed a total of 3 cups of food per day and is gaining weight wonderfully. 10 lbs in 3 weeks!!!
