Poor guy! The woman doesn't remember what brand the puppy was on - seriously? Nutro isn't the best brand, and suddently switching foods can cause an upset tummy (but I realize you didn't have a choice in this case). You may want to add a little plain pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) to his food to help firm up the stools. I'd look into a better food - check out http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/ to check out various kibbles. A good one will rank 5 or 6 stars; 4 at the very least. Your pup might do better on a grain free kibble, such as Acana, Orijen, Fromm, Blue Buffalo, Evo, etc.. Some of these companies make both grain inclusive and grain free kibbles, so read the bags carefully.

Another thought: has your pup been to the vet yet? If not, I'd take him. He might have worms or some other parasite.
