Our 12 yr old rescue, Tilly, developed diarrhea over the past month.

Vet put her on Flagyl and a bland diet of unsalted white rice and boiled chicken. Also prescribed Hill's D/D food, wet and dry. We're giving her dry venison.

She loves the chicken/rice, but is not so crazy about the dry venison.

Five days into this regimen, the diarrhea has stopped. She's begun to poop normally.

If she were feral, she'd probably have a diet solely of small birds and rodents [certainly no rice].

So, my questions are: Can we continue to feed her the rice/chicken combo? Are there enough nutrients?
