Please, do not alter your puppy's diet as changing environment is a stressful experience and feeding the right diet is important. When your puppy arrives in his new home it may show signs of stomach upsets and diarrhea because of leaving his mother and entering a strange new atmosphere. If the puppy does have diarrhea and this persists for more than 24 hours or becomes more severe, consult your veterinarian. If you want to change his diet, wait until your puppy has settled in, then gradually change it over a period of five to seven days.
