I'm another vote for Tylan. Kody has also had a sibo blip. He has been going great since Oct, absolutely nothing changes and out of the blue, the crazy rock and cardboard eating started then the yellow poop. He seems to have turned the corner now and is back on track. Just have to accept sibo is going to happen from time to time no matter what I do.
