Thanks for the history Rusty. Sounds like Begley has more severe diarrhea than what Willy ever had. Willy never had true diarrhea; only soft stools. The Blue Buffalo Basics line was recommended to me because it excludes Wheat, Corn, Soy, All dairy & eggs, which are all known causes of digestion and allergy problems. Since he is food driven I use his kibble as treats.

Can't the antibiotics themselves cause/worsen the diarrhea? They sure can and do for humans!

Yes antibiotics can kill the indigenous microflora that are necessary in addition to whatever they have been prescribed to target. This is why probiotics like acidophilus often are useful.

Worst stomach problems I ever had was after repeated ABs while undergoing chemotherapy - and that was after years of IBS and a brush with dysentary! Have to admit that I threw the medical advice out of the window, and ate huge quantities of live yoghurt, fresh cheese, and every probiotic food my body was telling me it needed, despite being told it would probably reinfect me. Worked for me - though I couldn't possibly recommend the same route to anyone else!

Plain yogurt is a very good source of probiotic organisms. I make my own organic yogurt using multi organism starter cultures. It is one of my dogs' favorite treats, along with blue berries, other fruit and for Peeves even bell peppers and other assorted veggies. But I would still keep things simple until pup's stomach settles, then add tiny amounts of other healthy treats one at a time so you know what works with him and what doesn't. Another thing I remember my vet suggesting when our dogs were babies was to give cookies of the same brand as the food they were getting so that the nature of the protein was the same along with any other ingredients and processing related issues.

I would wonder if the grass has had weed and feed on it... It takes forever to get out of the grass, and can hurt dogs.
