New food - loose stools
First of all... sorry if I’m posting a lot haha. I’m just a very concerned dog owner... and it is weird because I was less concerned with my first dog.
Anyway - so I have a 3,5 puppy. I was feeding her Wellness Core Puppy (36% protein), and I realized she started having loose stools. Mind you, I was also giving her real chicken training treats. So with the advice of many people on this forum, I decided to 1/ switch her to another food - in this case Fromm Gold Large Puppy, and 2/ being her to the vet for a fecal test.
The test came back negative - no worms or parasites. And as for the new food... I tried to do the switch gradually, but because I didn’t have enough of the old food left, it might have been a bit too much too fast for her. So now she’s having loose stools - which is expected when switching food too fast. There is no blood or mucus. Just loose stool.
I am currently feeding her 3 cups a day - 1 and a half in the morning and 1 and a half in the evening.
Does anyone know how long it takes a puppy to adjust to a new diet? After how many days does it become alarming and I need to bring her to the vet to do additional tests? What can help to make the transition better - pumpkin purée?
