My dogs also went through a period of diarrhea. My 1 year old, Bear, loves to chew on small branches that are on the ground. He also chews on mulched grass that has hardened. Heís been tested off and on and also been on Metronizadole a few times. My older 10 year golden, Lincoln, would also get diarrhea as soon as Bearís had ended. Iíve realized that Lincolnís diarrhea stems from a different issue. He has a tumor in the upper chamber of his heart so unfortunately, itís just part of the disease.
ďKnock on woodĒ Iíve gotten it under control. Iíve been supervising him when he goes out to make sure he doesnít pick up things from the ground. I think itís pretty much a puppy thing and he has gotten better. While he was going through the diarrhea, however, I fed him boiled chicken or ground beef, rice and Hills Prescription Diet W/D that I would get at the vet. I also sprinkled Purina Pro Plan, FortiFlora also available at the vet. I kept him on the bland diet for several days and once he had a few days of normal poop, I slowly re-introduced his regular food, Purina Pro Plan.
I would suggest you supervise the dogs when theyíre out so they do not eat dirt. Iím sure your vet has suggested a bland diet. I was going to ask if itís possible that your dog may be allergic to his food but you said both dogs have diarrhea. I think the root of it is them ingesting dirt. Good luck
