Concerning bowels

I have recently switched my 2 year old pits food 3 times within the last 5 months. I originally had him on Nutro and wanted to find him a better food (no signs of concern at this point, just wanted to better his food) I switched him to Rachael Rays food where I was horrible misleaded into believing was good food and he had a lot of accidents and not wanting to eat so then I went to blue buffalo and once again he had loss of appetite and accidents so I put him back on nutro and now I'm noticing bowels that are runny/mucus with a tint of red. Is this just another side effect from switching food or should I be concerned. I will attach a picture.

When you change their food, it generally takes a week or so for them to acclimate. Its better, if possible to do a gradual change, mixing the new in with the old, and increasing new and reducing old daily. Since you have not been able to get a handle on this, it would be advisable to have your Vet do a workup on him, just to be sure nothing is going on in there.

Looks like it might be colitis. I'd get him to the vet for a check-up.
