    UPDATE:
    Since I posted last, he finished the bag of Zignature and we switched him over to TOTW Sierra Mountain Roasted Lamb since we’ve heard so many good things about it. He ate it for one day and the color of his poop improved almost immediately! We were so happy for a second, the consistency seemed to be a little bit more solid too… until he stopped eating it. Entirely. He will not touch the stuff, he won’t even get near it! This is not a picky dog-at all. I thought maybe we switched to the new food too quickly and he was having trouble adjusting and then he started having THE WORST poops I have ever seen a dog have, to be perfectly honest. I don’t know how else to describe it other than he is having explosive black tar-like diarrhea. It is awful, it looks painful, he is NOT happy, and neither am I. I’m pretty scared because I’ve been reading recent reviews of TOTW making pets sick, but there’s been nothing confirmed. Has this ever happened to anyone out there? Black sludge-looking poop? Is his stomach just getting used to this new food? Should i just bail and try NutriSource or just go back to Hills i/d ????????

    Hi hi thanks for all the suggestions! Susan, our vet didn’t do any tests on his stool because it was too expensive and he made it sound really unnecessary. I am currently in the process of switching vets, finally, and have an appointment for tomorrow!! I cannot for the life of me remember what meds he was on, it was over a month ago and at the time I didn’t think it would become such an issue. All I remember is he was on FortiFlora and some white pills that lasted about a week (one in morning, one in the afternoon). Either way, he has not been on anything for about a month (not even treats!) in order to rule out anything else causing the upset stomach.
