One of the dogs had been having a few allergy issues for the last few months…mildly itchy ears, anal gland, etc. I had wondered myself if it was chicken. I bought a bag of the Fromm Heartland Gold to transition onto a few days before this started to see if that helped but never got the chance because of what happened. I’m not convinced it’s a chicken allergy that caused the diarrhea because BOTH dog had normal stools in the morning and then BOTH got diarrhea at the exact same time (2am). I was leaning towards a bad batch until I bought a new bag and nothing changed. I contacted Fromm, they say there was no ingredient change, but something is off. This morning was the first time in 2 weeks that they’ve had formed stools, still soft, but I’ll take it….and they’re day 2 into 50/50 of the transition.
Could be a coincidence but I doubt it.
Fingers crossed that this improvement continues.March 25, 2018 at 6:08 pm in reply to: My dog suddenly can’t eat his food #112521 Report Abuse
Interesting. I’ve come to the conclusion that it must be the food. Because I had 2 get diarrhea at the exact same time; I can’t see what else it could be. I bought a bag of the Heartland Gold, which is a completely different formula to transition onto. They are slightly improved so far (one more so than the other). If this doesn’t work, I’m just dropping Fromm all together and going to a new brand. They started on Orijen Large Breed puppy but never had great stools and didn’t really seem to enjoy meals until I switched to Fromm.
I’m currently also using a probiotic and pumpkin. My local small quality pet store also recommended the pumpkin latte powder. I stuck with the canned pumpkin because they really enjoy it.
I’m really hoping I get some results in the next week. This is so incredibly frustrating to have 2 dogs going through this, not to mention the vet cost because I didn’t know what was wrong.
Thanks for the response!March 25, 2018 at 5:08 pm in reply to: My dog suddenly can’t eat his food #112519 Report Abuse
I’m curious what happened with your pup.
I’ve been feeding Fromm LBA Gold to both my 2 year old Shepherds for over a year with no issues.
Two weeks ago both had diarrhea at 2am. They’ve been tested for multiple things and there’s nothing wrong with them that can be found. I keep going back to the food. I contacted Fromm but they say there’s no ingredient change. I’m thinking about switching foods at this point. They don’t have diarrhea anymore but their stools are not back to normal yet.
