Hi Kevin

Keeks has always had a funny tummy & weirdly enough Chicken is his worst enemy ! Most vets say try chicken & rice but that did the opposite with him.
I know most people would not recommend it but we tried Bakers puppy dry mix & thats all he seems to eat without any probs at all.
Its worth a try if you just get a small box 1st
Cut out all treats for a few days too - some of the chews & sticks can cause probs

Hi everyone,

Beau never had much trouble with her tummy till she got KC. Now she has rice & chicken, gets better and returns to loose stools on returning to previous foods.

Is the immodium the one you buy for adults? A previous vet nurse I visit advised me to try pepto bismol or kaylin, anyone else tried these?

Beau used to eat nearly everything before as treats without any issues!

I couldnt agree more !
My previous dogs had dry "Dr Johns" complete @£ 10.99 per sack !
It suited them all well & they have all lived 11+ & beyond

I have used Kaolin and immodium for Shiro, they are good to help settle the tums, i also use pro-biotics this helps put all the good bacteria back in the guts.
