    hi guys
    After our beloved tess passed away we couldnt cope without another dog.We welcome George, 9wks old. Very alert,bright,settled in fantastic except for his eating.He also has the runs but think its just the change of environment as he seems happy enough. Vet checked him over today.
    Breeder fed all her dogs on Purina beta dried food with fresh raw mincemeat.
    Georgy wouldnt touch the same food since we got him so I tried dried food with fresh chicken and he just ate the chicken.Tried to moisten food but still was picking at it. Got him on a natural recipe that comes in a packet-looks like paste which consists of chicken,rice,veg..He seems to enjoy it. Vet would like us to get him back on the dried food.
    Is dried better for dogs?He seems ok on this.im happy just to see him eating but he still has the runs. He has had the odd puppy biscuit as reward,i suppose introducing new food will do this to him.
    thankyou so much

    Our bulldog pup is on James Wellbeloved dry food moistened with a bit of warm water (brings out the flavour apparently!) topped with half of a James Wellbeloved puppy wet food sachet. He has only just gone down to 3 meals a day and he is 6 months old. We found that smaller meals more times a day was better for him.

    This food is expensive but it definately seems to be the best when it comes to keeping him from having diarrhoea. We also give him a couple of spoonfuls of natural bio yoghurt after each meal whenever he is loose and this seems to settle his tum.

    If he really doesn't like the dry food then you could try him on the sachets and mix in a little bit of dry increasing it day by day. Hope this help, we are still learning!

    One thing we do know though is that chicken definitely gives our dog the runs - he can't have it at all even though he loves it!
