Hello... so I have a gorgeous collie cross (called Skye) who just turned 1 at the beginning of June... when we rescued her at 10 weeks we were told to feed her on wainwrights which is hypoallergenic, grain free etc and we had always heard great reports and we haven't had any issues with her food until almost 2 months ago. We had got Skye into a doggie day care after months of trying to find the perfect care centre that we would feel confident leaving her from 9-5 for two days a week for lots of socialisation, play and walks ... she had two trial days before being accepted to ensure she would fit in and get along with the other dogs etc Skye was accepted as she got along great with the other dogs and just loved the staff however, after two weeks she came home one day with a very bad stomach - we put it down to her getting her paws on some food that she shouldn't have however, after a phone call to her doggie day care they ensured us that there's no food on premises unless brought in with individual dogs but even then there is no way any dog could get near it and no treats are given. We then thought it could have potentially been stress related around other dogs. I had phoned the vet and asked for their advice and they recommended that we fast her for 8-12 hours and slowly introduce her food along with some rice and boiled chicken - small amounts but frequently. After 72 hours of not much improvement and numerous phone calls we were given antibiotics and two courses of a probiotic paste which lasted almost a week. Thankfully we did see improvement and her stools did firm up over time and take some shape but never fully back to normal. We revisited the vet again just last week as this time we had a case of conjunctivitis and I wanted to ask about her stomach as we still weren't fully back to normal even though Skye was acting completely normal - drinking the usual, showing interest in her food and of course LOTS of energy. The vet has now told us to change her food to James Wellbeloved Fish & Rice which is also a hypoallergenic brand however, I have heard mixed reports about this brand and we don't understand going from one hypoallergenic brand to another (JW also has gluten which Wainwrights didn't so this will be an introduction of something new). We would love to hear peoples thoughts / advice... if any other dog owners have had similar issues with their dogs ... I really just don't want to mess her stomach about by introducing a new food if she isn't going to agree with it and we end up taking a step back. Apologies for the length of this post - I have been known to go on a bit.
