My lab is almost 13 years old. The last year he has started having tummy problems which caused diarrhea often. I tried the usual things, but nothing helped. My vet recommended this food. I wasn't wild about it especially after I read what it the ingredients. But I tried it. First off, my dog loves it. Then, within a few days his diarrhea stopped. I continued to feed him the EN for about a month. Then, I decided to try another food which is supposed to be very good for dogs with tummy issues. The difference is that this food has a list of ingredients that I liked better. Unfortunately, even easing my dog into eating this new food slowly didn't matter. He got diarrhea again. So I went back to the EN. My only worry had been that he could not eat the usual amount that was recommended. He could only eat about 1/2 the recommended amount or else he would get sick again. So I fed him 1/2 the amount and supplemented his diet with pumpkin, apple sauce and no fat yogurt to give him the calories because he had begun losing too much weight. Of course he loved the whole mix. I continued this for another month while slowly increasing the amount of EN I fed to him. Currently he is eating almost the proper amount for a dog his size. His tummy is doing extremely well. He has put on some of the weight he lost. Now his weight is at a healthy level. I had a very hard time finding this food too, thankfully Pet Food Direct carries it. By the way, I noticed a comment that it makes some dogs breath smell bad. I think the food smells but my dog's breath is normal. I am so thankful that I found out about this food. My guy was miserable and you could tell that he really hated the emergency walks they would occur at 2am or 3am and waiting for me to get dressed to go out was difficult. Thanks again!

My vet prescribed this for my Great Dane who survived the dreaded bloat and was having digestive problems afterwards. I don't think it tastes that great and it gives both my dogs stinky breath. But they eat it and it gets rid of his diarrhea. They do however love the canned version.

    Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets EN GastroENteric Canine Formula Dry:

    Our 10 year old rescue golden retriever has Cushing's, valley fever and other problems. He constantly had diarrhea. On the advice of our daughter, a veterinary who uses these products in her clinic, I decided to try them. The difference has been amazing. He loves the food, he wouldn't eat the more expensive dog food we were giving him. I mix the dry and canned. The diarrhea has stopped and he is running around like a 3 year old, Thank you.

      Comments about Purina Veterinary Diets EN GastroENteric Canine Formula Dry:

      My dog has a very sensitive stomache and food allergies. He is on a lot of medications due to this issue and also some other issues. To find a product that will not aggravate any of his conditions and also be nutritional and also that he likes has been a huge problem. This food has been working great in all of these areas. I feel blessed and lucky to have had my vet recommend this food.
