can a puppy get loose stools from eating to many puppy treats? i assume they can, but just checking. Also, what is the best way to change a puppies diet? oh yeah, one more question can feeding canned food mixed with dry kibble cause picky eaters? I was noticing that my puppy just eats all the canned food she can from the dry kibble. I also noticed that she licks the dry food off the kibble and leaves the dry kibble in the bowl. Am I starting a bad habbit?
I personally don't feed canned food at all. It's 75 percent water on average, so you're not getting what you pay for as far as nutrients vs price and content. Not only that, it's horrible for a dog's teeth, dogs on canned food get tartar buildup at an unbelievable rate, especially if youd ont' brush their teeth regularly. And dogs tend to be picky about eating the canned food around the dry. If you change your dog's food, you should do it slowly, over a weeklong period at the minimum. Gradually decrease one food, while increasing the amount of new.
all my dogs seem to get diarrhea from canned food. even if i only mix in a teaspoon of it. its much better for them to eat dry food to keep their teeth and gums healthier. if you want to mix something in the food try some plain yogurt. dogs seem to really enjoy that. it can also help clear up diarrhea too.
