What else are they feeding her? Any treats, bones, rawhides etc. Libbie had a lot of diarrhea when we first got her and we treated it with flagyl, gastro-intestinal canned food and probiotics. I do find bully sticks and rawhides really bother her. We steer clear of that stuff now.

Bully sticks, rawhides, etc seem to cause an osmotic diarrhea...

He does get bully sticks and buffalo shins but no rawhide. The only treats he gets is boiled chicken and lamb jerky. However when he's in his bouts of diarrhea he doesn't get any of that.

Sally's mom, What's a DNA PCR? I'll definitely pass on the information about flagyl and probiotics as well. Between that and a new vet and stool sample I hope they can get it taken care of. I feel so bad for them... Their last golden passed last winter at 14 and his last year with them was really tough and he had a lot of intestinal and allergy issues that were really hard to fix. When they got this boy, all they wanted was a healthy puppy and now they've had to deal with all this digestive stuff right off the bat

If they are buying jerky treats, please have them reconsider. Many are imported from China and have been implicated in many deaths.

He doesn't get any of these for sure... I work at a natural feed store and make sure that my dogs and all my family members dogs only get the best, including nothing from China
