Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that everyone developed diarrhea after changing their food.

I would recommend feeding everyone boiled chicken and rice, as this is very easily digestible and non-irritating. I also would recommend that you start everyone on a probiotic such as Fortiflora.

Once everyone's bowels return to normal, I would switch back to their previous food and carefully try different ones. I would suspect that the new food was very rich, possibly higher in fat, and this is what caused the diarrhea.

Does this help? What other questions do you have?
