can anyone point me to a diet plan that is good for this problem? don't want to feed hill's products. my dogs both got bacterial infections in their intestines. the vet prescribed a bunch of pills and cans of hill's prescription diet i/d. i see a ton of stuff on this board about how terrible hill's products are. the vet had a big hill's display and was wearing a hill's hat and hills scrubs. so i am skeptical about how necessary this really is. the dogs' normal diet is chicken, ground beef, chicken hearts+livers, rice, oatmeal, carrots peas and corn. recently we started eliminating things one by one to see if the diarrhea would stop, so we were down to just meat for the past week or so. i asked the vet if the meat was just as good. i should have asked if their normal diet was good. he said it wasn't balanced enough and the hill's prescription diet needs to be fed to them for 3 days.
