My family and I have just gotten our first puppy Mila 5 days ago from a rescue organization. She is a lab/shepherd/boxer mix. They think she is about 12-13 weeks old. When the foster mom gave her to us they also gave us a bag of Purina Dog Chow. The foster mom mentioned that she eats Purina Puppy Chow but also will eat Purina Dog Chow. We fed her the Dog Chow that she provided us but Mila has had diarrhea pretty much the whole time we have had her. So when we purchased her more food we changed to Puppy Chow thinking maybe the Dog Chow caused the diarrhea. But a couple nights ago she vomited quite a bit of food and tonight she also did the same. Her diarrhea has also continued. Other than those times she plays like normal. She runs, digs and is happy. I also watch her like a hawk and she hasn't digested anything out of the norm. She has chewed on some leaves and branches but that's it. Please help, what should we do?View Thread
