    Unhappy please help im getting so stressed JUST OVER DOG FOOD!!

    Ok so this is probley my 3rd post regarding dog foods.
    I now have some money to buy the good stuff of dog food and i was getting pretty set on artimas dry. But lilly as of almost a week ago has been having
    diareah with like a thick brown mucas all in it.. and this only started when i cut out her pedigree puppy wet and just gave her pedigree puppy dry ( to save money till i got the better stuff) now this has me very concerned cause if her tummy is so upset with being on a dry food only, how will she go when i get the better stuff and thats dry only.. and i think she has a skin condition casue she is always itching, but i read that some dog foods help with that. The one dog food i really wanted to put her on wellness core ocean dry is not sold in australia so i have no way of getting it.. If someone could please tell me a direction i need to head in as far as food for her that would be appricated.

    (p.s the pedigree puppy dry and wet was being mixed together so i just cut one out, i didnt add it :)

    The Pedigree kibble is most likely the culprit here. Too much corn and proteins from low grade sources. It is not that you are just feeding kibble.
    A quick call to the vet for advice would be a good idea ... but it this were my puppy, I'd feed a bland diet of boiled rice and chicken for a few days, then start with the better grade kibble, slowly introducing it.

    Same as i would regular meals. My adults eat once a day, youngsters twice, and puppies three times.

    I make bland diet from scratch - starting with boiling the chicken for the meat and to create a stock to make the rice with.
