I'm using total-zymes and total-biotics.

NWC Naturals® Pet Products | Best Probiotics | Probiotics For Dogs | Supplments

Works pretty well, but I'll be switching to Carmen's product when it gets here.

Ok, my current is in a jar and its the Naturvet - not so sure; I liked the prozyme better Carmen adds flax (and I think prozyme) to her feed-sentials product which rules out Grim.

How high is the fat content in the two foods? That can sometimes be the culprit in loose stools.

Another reason for d-zymes - lipase breaks down fat

Fromm LB puppy is 14%, Acana Pacifica is 17%

Sorry, I saw this earlier and meant to get back to you when I got a chance, but I forgot!

Here is the B-Naturals website: Digestion Aids : Holistic, natural remedies for dogs and cats., Natural nutrition, food and supplemements for dogs, cats and horses.

Unfortunately, I see that the Digestion Blend is out of stock, but here are the ingredients:

Quote:
Description: Berte's Digestion Blend contains beneficial bacteria, pancreatic enzymes, amino acids and medicinal herbs in a convenient powder form. Designed to help heal the entire gastrointestinal system, this formula is beneficial for dogs suffering from Irritable Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Colitis, GI disorders and chronic diarrhea.

Dosage: Mix with food in these amounts: Toy breeds - 1/3 teaspoon Up to 30 pounds - 1/2 teaspoon 30 to 60 pounds - 1 teaspoon 60 to 90 pounds - 2 teaspoons Over 90 pounds - 2 to 3 teaspoons

Ingredients: One tablespoon contains:
L-Glutamine (500 mg), Lactobacillus Acidophilus 100 Million CFU (100 mg), Lactobacillus Bulgaricus 100 Million CFU (75 mg), Streptococcus Themophilus 75 Million CFU (75 mg), Ginger Root (10 mg), N-Acetyl-Glucosamine (50 mg), L-Glycine (32 mg), Papain (50 mg), Pepsin (100 mg), Pancreatin 4x (100 mg), Pancrelipase (50 mg), Ox Bile Extract (60 mg), Bromelain (40 mg), Amylase (30 mg), Trypsin (25 mg) and Betaine (30 mg).

I love the B-naturals site...very informative and am familiar w/all the ingr. in this product (should get for my guy)..I have Lew Olsons book (I think she owns site and b-naturals - NOT sure) - Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs
L-glutamine is huge in repair of the villi (sp.) responsible for filtering and uptake of nutrients.
There is caution to do with ammonia, but is also a brain amino acid, the only or one of very few things that can pass the blood brain barrier - so it is good for many things - it is abundant in raw food - guess that's why so many dogs rebound for the best in digestion when switched to raw...
