If gets worse go back to vet even if no improvement. Is the food chicken flavor? Only had a friend who didn't realize her dog had allergy to it then gave tiny amount of chicken to her Dog and poor dog had runs and threw up. Just thought I'd mention that incase it is that.

The pup is too young for an allergy. That's not the problem.


You might try just staying with the wet food for a full week and see if his tummy is settled that way. If it is, then you know the transition to dry is the issue. If his tummy is still upset on the wet, then you have to look at other possibilities such as parasites, transition to new home and so forth.

Right now you have too many variables going on. Eliminate the one you can control, which is the food transition.

Hope that helps.
Good luck.

Do keep a close eye on him. Tucker contracted Parvo when he was 6 weeks old. They can perk up at times, and then go poorly again. Keep your puppy well-hydrated, as the Parvo virus doesn't kill puppies; it's the dehydration from vomitting/loose stools that does them in. And do keep us updated on how he is doing.

All I can add is maybe put a little (like a tbsp) or pure pumpkins puree into/onto is food; it helps to firm up the poop

Thanks everyone for your help and advice, he has just done a poo, first since this morning and it was a lot firmer, still a bit like thick paste, but came out formed so that's a good sign??

Yes, that's a good sign, but it could still go back the other way whether it's his food or Parvo. I believe it was Tess who advised to go back to feeding just his original wet food that he was on when you got him. That is truly the only way to tell if it's the food switch or something else.

Sounds like a food issue to me. My dog has the same problem when a food doesn't agree with him. He'll have firm, normal, poo in the morning, and progressively it'll get softer as the day goes on.

I'm hoping it is a food issue, as bad as that can be to figure out. Better that than something viral.

So scared there is something nasty going on. But he is trotting around quite happily .

He is a terrier x with a lot of JR in him.

Thank you xx
I would get him on something a little more healthy than pedigree. Taste of the wild ,blue buffalo, pure vita, Zignature ,Origen are all quality foods you could try. Small meals 3x a day. Dry will probably help firm up the stools. It is actually better than canned because it has more protein.
