|I would first suggest a higher quality food such as Natural Balance, Canidae, Solid Cold, Innova, California Natural, Wysong, Flint River Ranch, etc...
Try the new food for several weeks and if there is still gastrointestinal issues you could have things like allergies, unbalanced intestinal flora, etc...
You can test for food allergies by using the elimination diet protocol which is 12 weeks feeding one novel protein and one novel carbohydrate he has never had before. The introducing one new food at time waiting 1-2 weeks between each new addition. If you see reactions such as gas, itchy skin, redness, etc.. you can count that ingredient as an allergy and then eliminate it from the diet.
Supplements like probiotics, enzymes, and green food/phyto nutrients can help with digestion.
