He's not getting anything extra other than his Apoquel and Fortiflora. No treats. No omega chews. No fish oil. So I'm guessing his digestive system isn't liking his food. I'm also thinking maybe it's the salmon? I looked up the Purina Pro Gastroenteric food and apparently I need a prescription in order to get it. And yikes is it expensive.

I hate the thought of changing his food again as I know a change in diet is tough on dogs in general...but I don't know what else to do. Someone above commented trying to feed him the food that he's on for a long time (a few months) with nothing extra. Do yall think that's something I should still try even though his poops have gone back to mush now that we're transitioning back? Or if it's possibly the salmon, should I try the Sensitive Stomach chicken and rice formula instead?
Has he been on the same meds while he was on the bland diet? If so, I'd say go ahead and try the chicken and rice formula instead. You might also try doing three smallish meals a day to start with.
