Hi. I'm a new member, and I have a question about diarhea, pooping in the house, etc. My adopted Basenji mix, Pedro, one year, four months old, seems to have a somewhat irritable bowel, I guess.
I've had him now about one month, and lately he has had two accidents in the house (otherwise he appeared house-trained). I have been feeding him twice a day a modest amount of cooked chicken with Nature's Variety New Zealand dry kibble (Venison meal and other stuff, with a freeze-dried raw coating). He loves it. A few days ago I ran out of chicken, and substituted some cooked people food roast beef.
Can they digest beef? It seems to have triggered some digestive troubles, although Pedro does not seem to be distressed.
I sense that these dogs need continuity and similarity in meals. What do you suggest as the best diet to keep from surprising him in the night. At least he was smart about the accidents–he did one on the bath mat in the bathroom, and the other in the hallway on the way to the bath.
Thanks for your thoughts.:)
