Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by to read. I hope you can help out and give your opinions. I like to get the most feedback possible.
This is the situation. My female Miniature Pinscher, Penny, is now 5 weeks and a couple days into her pregnancy. She was on Pedigree Puppy food mixed with some adult food. I wanted to better my dogs' diet, so I changed all of them to either Innova Puppy food or Innova Adult food. It has only been one day, and I am still mixing the pedigree with the Innova, so the transition goes smoothly. They all got Diarrhea!!! I know this is common when switching diets, but Penny has the worse case of it. The others do not have diarrhea that bad. Anyways, in regards to her being pregnant, is this alright? common? anything I should know about a situation like this? or am I just worried too much? Either way, thanks for the help. I appreciate it. Bye!
Hello. Thanks! Well my Vet said to put Penny on a 3/4 puppy mix and 1/4 adult mix. I am putting about 1/2 Pedigree and 1/2 Innova. With occasional snacks, fruits, etc. I give her plenty of water, but I am going to start giving her goats milk soon. Thanks for your help. And I would appreciate more feedback. Thanks again!
with the runs, you don't want to give treats tht have extra water. I have one dog who, when she had puppies she was eating a raw diet and she didn't have runny poo at all through her pregnancy. My first one though, had soft poo when she was only a few weeks from having her pups.
Hello. Thanks! I only give her treats once in a while. I think the majority of her extra loose stool is due to the diet change. Also, I am going to be giving her goats milk. I will make sure she has plenty of liquids. She is eating so much too! Lol....well thanks again!
hello eddy...sorry to hear your prego pooch has the trots...my advice is take a few samples into the vet...my vet tells me if the runs last more then 2 days with no let up to get them in..especially since she is expecting...i personally would er on the side of caution...i see your trying to do the best for your dogs and sure the food might be too rich...but many parasites cause the runs too...and when she is expecting she can get wore down...take care ...and I hope it is nothing...
Hello. Thanks to everyone first and foremost. Her Diahhrea has now turned into a loose stool. It is not very loose just somewhat. She seems to be doing fine. It is funny because all of my dogs leave the pedigree food in the bowls and eat all of the Innova. Go Figure! Lol...
Penny is 5 weeks and 3 days into her pregnancy. She is doing well. Thanks again and there is no limit to the feedback I am expecting. Thanks!
