    His stools do seem to be firming up finally but I’m sure we’ll have to wait to see. Most people suggest trying a different source of protein all together if they have issues with one. This is why we changed from the fish to the Bison. Maybe your guy needs a different primary source of protein. If this didn’t work then I was going to change the brand all together as was suggested above. Thank goodness for this site. There is such confusing info out there! Did your vet rule out any parasites in his stool? Even though ours did, she still started my guy on a round of antibiotics because she said there was some virus going around causing diarrhea. My female hasn’t had a problem though. She also said to give him generic Imodium once or twice a day if we need to till this is figured out. Hope you get yours figured out. I feel like it’s always something!! This is why people need to be dedicated when they decide to have pets 🙂

    By the way, I emailed Earthborn and haven’t heard back from them yet. Hoping I do soon!

    Oh, just as a reminder the food that became bad was Ocean Catch.

    Okay, soooo just when I was going to switch to another protein source from Earthborn, and knowing I have to wean them over, I noticed a rank smell coming from their current food. We always keep it zipped and in a plastic bin that is sealed. This loose stool issue started long before this bag but I obviously stopped that bad altogether. There is still about half in it and I’m about to email the company which is why I saved the bag. Has this happened to anybody else?
    He seems to be improving on the Bison protein with stools being more formed although he did have an accident this morning. Still giving him Imodium as needed. Just really concerned about how that food became rank!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think we are going to just switch to another Earthborn and see. I’ve had six boxers in my life and they each have their own issues. One thing we have noticed is most of them have had issues with their urine pH. They always have fresh water and drink a ton but that is for a different thread 🙂 On a more pleasant note, my poor husband is about to go land mine hunting in the backyard before we get hit with another blizzard. He deserves a medal!
