merrick food ?? Grandma's pot pie
need help i have a very finiky dog, he never really stuck to one food. it has een an issue since i was blessed with him a year and half ago.. but i have to say for the last 2 months he ate Iams wet dog fod, but only if yo pu him in his crate and said "eat presley", after 20 min.. he would sometimes he didnt.
He never ate like a "normal" dog . put the food down- and watch it disapear.. But then we were told by a vet to try "merrick" dog food. Well we did buy it and slowly mix it in his diet. Well good news is he loves that food licks it right up, and i think i did a wrong thing because for the last 4 days his poop is loose , diareah like, and he has gas.. Doc told me to mix rice to help. but so upset i just wanted to give him healthy food.. can some one help me? i want to know what to do, has this happened to anyone else? oh presley is acting the same, drinks his water, plays, just bad tummy, Does any one else feed there little buddy merrick food?
thanks presley's mom

Both of mine got diahrrea when I tried switching them to Merricks so I stopped it. I am now in the process of switching them to Wellness and have had no problems so far. I think some are just more senesitive to change in diets.

Some flavors of merrick's upsets Gracie's tummy and she won't eat it, mostly Cowboy cookout. She loves puppy plate and grammy's pot pie. I mix it with her dry food. No runs usually.
