Hi, Having some troubles with the diet of my Dogue. We rescued him at around 18months. He was on a raw diet and after a few weeks managed to ween him onto biscuits and tinned meat which is much better then the raw diet. We just couldn't keep that up. However, he eats it fine and 9 times out of 10 his stools are fine but about once or twice a month he will have a bout of diarrhea. We use tails.com (hypoallergenic) for the biscuits and Rocco for the tinned meat. Although we did use Chappie before Rocco and he liked that too. Over the Christmas period my Dogue got severe diarrhea and sickness out of the blue. As usual we switched to rice and chicken to calm his bowels down plus the Protexin Pro-kolin + paste from the vet. After a couple of days of the diarrhea not clearing up and him being in pain when going to the toilet we decided to go to the vet. He had bloods taken which came back all good (thank god!). We are awaiting the results for his stools which have been sent off to the lab. The vet seems to think he might have an irritable bowel or colitis but yet to be confirmed. I know their bowels are very sensitive so we do not feed him human scraps and he only has rawhide and dental sticks as treats which he enjoys. Nothing that I have noticed seems to "set off" his bowel it just randomly happens. I was wondering what food others feed their Dogues and if anyone has had the same/similar experience. He is reacting well to rice and chicken but it has only been two weeks and I am not sure that is a good enough diet for him long term. Also he doesn't seem to be gaining weight even though we feed him quite enough every day and isn't too active. About 1 hour walking a day. He did weigh 45KG but since last load of diarrhea over Christmas he has dropped down to 42KG. He looks quite lean but not a typical large Dogue. Any advice would be great?
