Since they both have the problem, make sure to have loads of fresh water around. By that I mean wash the bowl frequently and make sure it is filtered water. I would also wet their food. Make sure they get out to relieve their selves frequently. The rumbling in the dogs stomach is probably caused by the poor quality of the purina. Switch back to the wellness. they were doing fine on it why switch it is a high quality food.
I'm feeding them Iams not Purina. I"m assuming it's something in the IAMS that is bothering the dog with the rumbling stomach. I switched to Iams cause it was local whereas Wellness had to be shipped to me. I would not feed my dogs Purina.
The immune system, which fights off infections is directly related to diet. Toxicity or deficiency is the cause of disease. My dogs have access to food and water at all times and I"m on a Paleo diet, not a SAD diet. And all animals need salt..it's a basic element of farm feeds because they need it.
They had different problems...only one has a UTI..the other had an infected uterus. But for some reason they both had subpar immune systems, was my point.
