Thanks for all the replies!!
He had another bout of diarrhea last night, at the time he would normally have his "regular" poop. He is still acting completely normal and eating good.
Anyways, he was on Hill's s/d for almost 2 months before this to clear up the crystals. He was only on the dry because he would NOT eat the s/d soft food. With this he had no problems, maybe even a bit on the constipated side.
Then I would say about 3 weeks ago we started slowly switching the food over to the c/d and this took about a week. and now he is completely on c/d.
I started out giving him mostly dry food, and a bit of soft at night (he doesnt eat much soft but will have about a quarter of a can sometimes). THen I didnt have any soft for a couple of days (4 i think) and this diarrhea started before I bought more soft, so about 3 days into having no soft food. I had since bought more soft food and he eats a bit of it as usual. Even though giving him soft food might sound counterproductive if he has diarrhea, i'm sort of concerned that he is losing fluid so i figure the soft food is giving him a bit more.
I think i'm going to buy the s/d again and see if that helps. I'm also going to call my vet and see what they have to say.
Thanks again anyone. i'll let you know how it goes. if you have anymore suggestions that would also be great!!!!
