Yes. Pedigree is a very low-quality food. I would check www.dogfoodadvisor.com to find a more highly-rated food. A lot of people here like Taste of the Wild.

Sound Advice from the Vet.Years ago I fed my dogs pedigree, then I switched to Iams and then I went to Eagle Pack and I've been with Eagle Pack for several years...its not grain free, but three different vets recommended it, its all natural. I was recently going to switch to grain free and the vet advised me against it, he said if the food you give them now is not a problem, don't try to fix something that is not broke.
Yeah she's been checked for all that stuff! It was the food. She's pooping normally with pedigree, but once she's done with this bag I'll switch to one of the recommended brands.Pedigree is crap. I'd go with Blue Wilderness, TOTW or Wellness Core. Definitely switch the protein source, so if the current food is chicken based, try lamb or fish or duck. Dogs can also be allergic to grains, so a grain free food of a different protein source would be what I'd try for a dog with constant diarrhea.
You have had her checked for parasites, right? Giardia and worms can cause diarrhea and switching foods won't help that at all.
You'll want to start the switch before she's done -- mix the new food in 25% to 75% old for a week, the 50/50, then 75% new 25% old, then all new. This will help to reduce stomach upset from new food.Yeah she's been checked for all that stuff! It was the food.

Gah, why do so many people think this? Who is spreading this rumor?? I'm really interested in knowing.If you have a tractor supply company around you they sell a brand called 4Health (I think it's made by diamond too) and I have found that to be very similar to Taste of the Wild (which I used to feed) and a lot cheaper. My dogs all do very well on it and they don't have diarrhea on it which makes me happy because my one dog has a sensitive system and gets it really easy.
Never even heard of the food. Heard of Dr. Harveys, not this one but I will look at it.Dr. Tim's should be on your list. Annamaet is very solid too, just that its hard to find and the on-line prices are high.
PetFlow has Dr. Tim's at a very good price.
