Winston suffers from a very delicate stomach and was on a combination of Iams low resudie and some canned i/d food and doing well until iams recalled the low residue. He refused to eat the id kibble and suffered from diareha. Can anyone recommend a dry food to replace the iams low residue. I don't know what else to do. He goes over to the bowl, picks out the canned food and leaves the rest.

Many Bernese have sensitive stomachs, including my Maggie. It took me a while to find a diet that would work well for her.
Many Bernese seem to be sensitive to grains, especially corn and wheat. Iams Low residue is mainly a corn based diet. I would try switching to something grain free and see if that brings any help.
