Soy that is not adequately processed for pet foods can be poorly digested and allergenic. It can also bind other nutrients, making them less digestible for your pet.
Too much soy can cause loose stools in pets.
Wheat is commonly implicated in pet food allergies. This could be related to gluten allergy or sensitivity.

Gradually increase the percentage of new food every few days so that you transition completely to the new food over 10-14 days.
