Ok ill start off by saying he stays hydrated loves playing around like crazy and has had no emotional or physical setbacks but I want to see what can be done. So from the get go Hemi has solid stools but I had to cold turkey him off of the kirkland brand dog food bc I never bought that kind so he went straight to evo. He had huge stools and bad and I mean BAD gas and every few stools he would have diarrhea so i figured i would ease him into orijen puppy. I switched him to orijen puppy and he loved it more than evo. He doesn't leave the bowel eats a whole cup morning lunch and dinner but his stools were the same howevet now he has more diarrhea stools than solid and even the solids are more pudding style than fully hard. I got a little worried so I bought a wormer and two nights ago gave him the pills that night he had a horribly runny stool but the thanksgiving morning he had more solid ones than he's had in a week. Its still of and on but more so pretty solid with a little bit of liquid no blood though. I'm wondering could he be allergic to chicken? He kind of scratching for no reason nibbling on his legs and scratching his neck ( not sure if that's just the collar)
Any help would be appreciated.

Pumpkin will help with loose stools or this supplement Bixbi - Premium, USA Sourced, Jerky for Dogs as far as being allergic not sure. Do you give any kind of treats or chews that are different from the food if so what?

Also have you actually had the vet do a stool sample?

He is an am bully he's 4 months is utd on shots had two wormings first with the kennel at 3 weeks I believe and by me at 4 months just a few days ago.

As far as treats he gets nothing but his kibble only even as a treat I juat have a bag with me at all times with pieces for him the only toys he chews are pig ears and the occasional rawhide

Depending on what part 25-45 min like I said would be willing to travel for sure especially if you know them. Rather have him checked with reliable people than pay to get him checked by some jackass

I don't think the itching is from the food if you are doing Orijen. It could be the detergent you are washing his bed in... Or random stuff...and definitely could be a parasite. Sometimes just doing a 24 hour fast from food, and just give water can really help clear the system. That is what I would do.

Keep us posted!

My wife couldt find our natural oatmeal shampoo for our dogs and used this random cheap crap we had hidden in the back I'm thinking that's where the itching came from ill wait on welders info and I think I may try the fasting bc my next day off is tues but if I can get him seen earlier ill take a day off.
