A gradual transition to a new pet food is important to avoid digestive upset. To transition, mix your pet's current food with the new food. Over 7 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend no transition or a shorter transition time.

    Great food!

    By on

    My 10 month old lab puppy started having soft, unformed, loose stools about a month or so ago. We ran a fecal test on him at the vet and discovered he had Giardia. We treated him with a few rounds of antibiotics and dewormed him and cleared the Giardia up, but there was no improvement in his stools. The vet recommended putting him on this food for a few weeks to help reset his GI tract. She said sometimes puppies need help clearing everything out and getting back to normal. After one meal of this, his stools were formed but still soft. After two meals, they were formed and pretty firm! We will be switching him back to his puppy food in a couple weeks and hope the solid stools continue.

    Seems to make an improvement in dog diarrhea

    By on

    So our 7yo golden started having GI problems a number of months ago. No symptoms of any sort, happy, energetic, and otherwise normal except she started having "pudding poop". The vet ran a number of tests, she got de-wormed, she tried hypoallergenic food, probiotics, tylan powder .... NOTHING worked. It was so frustrating to not be able to understand how a dog could go from normal to pudding with no other symptoms. As a last ditch our vet wanted us to try the GI Biome. I think she was the guinea pig for their office since this sounds like a relatively new product. Well lo an behold almost immediately she started having close to normal poops. Not perfectly normal like before but more So our 7yo golden started having GI problems a number of months ago.

    Helped with colitis

    By on

    My puppy started having soft, loose stools from the time we adopted her at 5mos. old and was on regular Hills food. After 6mos she was diagnosed with colitis and switched to i/d. Things were going ok until she had a major flare-up with blood in her stool and her vet put on her new Biome. What a difference it has made. Her stools are nice and formed, she's ok with the taste but I wish it came in canned as my dog prefers canned food over kibble. It's also very pricey. Aside from that my dogs sensitive system seems to like it.

    Definitely worth it

    By on

    After months of antibiotics and other probiotics with no avail this food completely took away my pups diarrhea. I will never feed them anything else because I spent way too many sleepless nights and coming home from a long day of work to clean up diarrhea. That was not fun. I tried weaning them off but they got diarrhea again so they are back on it and for good.

    Love New Food!

    By on

    Recommended by our vet to help with serious gi issues. Our little wire fox was having major gi symptoms and we were out of options with low protein and low fat available foods. Since switching to Hill's Biome on May 1, we have been totally satisfied and our pup has regained normal gi function and is gaining weight.

    This food saved us!

    By on

    After over 4 months of excessive diarrhea, we were at the end of our rope and our dog Cory was not a happy dog and neither were we. With our vets help we had tried a myriad of foods and medicines. Thank goodness our vet found out about this product! After just 2 days no more diarrhea! Our dog actually likes the food for the most part (although I wish they had wet food) and he is back to normal! Thank you for inventing this! Hope buying this food monthly won't break the bank though but guess it will be worth it for no diarrhea. Would give 5 stars but pricey and no wet food option (yet)

    Good for fiber responsive colitis

    By on

    My dog has fiber responsive colitis, for which we’d had him on Hill’s W/D for many months. He was doing reasonably well on that but was still having some stool and anal gland issues, and it made him have to poop 4 to 6 times a day. On Gastrointestinal Biome, his stools are actually better, and he only goes 3 times a day. And he likes it much more than he liked the W/D. We’re very happy with it so far.

    New Prescription Food for Digestive Health

    By on

    Our rescued greyhound, Socks, has had digestive issues for as long as we have had her. Our veterinarian had her on the original Hill's Prescription Diet low-fat ID kibble and canned food which helped somewhat, but she still had loose stools. We've had her on this new food for two weeks, and she has had a few semi-solid stools so we are quite hopeful.

    Awesome dog food, awesome company.

    By on

    We ordered this food for our dog who has had loose stools since she was a puppy. This is the only thing that has hardened her stools. And not to mention it was here the day after I ordered it.

    Prompt delivery - as usual!

    By on

    My vet doesn't carry this product, and after my dog had suffered from chronic diarrhea for months with no apparent cause, they agreed that this was worth a try. The product arrived within 3 days of my order. Unfortunately, my dog didn't find this food to be tasty and she won't eat it. She also just got a diagnosis that won't be helped by this particular food, so I am looking to donate it to another pet parent or a facility such as a shelter that can use it.
