Kerry, I've used one of Dr. Pitcairn's recipes for diarrhea, quite a few years ago - had rice in it, and some other ingredients I dont recall. I used it for Mr. Black Kitty, who was FELV/FIV positive. IT worked really well. I didn't use it exactly, used canned chicken rather than raw, and it still worked well. After a few weeks, I switched to a canned lamb and rice food, and he still did well on it.
