AJmom Thank you for the tips. I'll use them in the future. He was fine after a day and after giving him a little less of the new food.

Try giving a tbl spoon of plain yogurt with his food. This has helped my puppy with tummy troubles. Firmed up his poo after a day. Hope it helps.

AJmom He is 11 weeks old now. He is a big pup . He weighs 25 lbs and is pretty tall for his age too. I agree I may have over fed him. Especially since the Victor is a way better food than Purina Puppy Chow.

JakodaCD OA I'm assuming he's around 10 weeks? since you got him a couple weeks ago?

I usually feed my 8 week + a 1/2 cup three times a day, since you cut him back and your seeing better stools, yep, you may have been over feeding him...When they hit about 12 weeks, I 'up' it to 3/4 maybe a little more depending on body type/energy level..

AJmom Thank you all for the advice. I really appreciate it. I have scaled down the amount of Victor I gave him and we got solid poops ! He now poops only twice a day and is happy and active.Instead of 2 1/2 cups Victor a day ,I now give him 2 cups a day .

Harry and Lola Try adding a tablespoon or two of cornflour into some water and mix in with the kibble. I have used cornflour with diarrhoea and it worked for me.

Add a tablespoon of plain pure pumpkin. Libby's. It's going to take time. Give it a few weeks. Make sure he's drinking enough water
Pumpkin will firm up stools.

Zeeva It's possible that you are overfeeding...it's hard to say, but you're absolutely right in thinking that overfeeding can cause runny stools. Can you try to cut back and see how things go?
