Sunflowers Try some digestive enzymes and see if that does the trick. Although I would recommend going raw if you possibly can.

anitram No, it's the Beef formula.

I've given him chicken and beef (raw or cooked) at different times and there is no change so I don't think it's the protein.

Sunflowers Is it the chicken formula? Perhaps switch protein?

Poop consistency

Hans had very good poops in the beginning (say from 8-11 weeks), and for the 7-8 weeks since then it is always the same situation: poops twice a day, almost same time on schedule, first come out two perfect logs, then he "finishes it off" with a small pile of pudding on top.

He is eating Merrick Grain Free (though his poop was like this on every one of the 4 kibbles we've tried and the same when we gave him canned Merrick or raw). He's better on Merrick than the others, especially Orijen which gave him pretty serious squirts. If I give him pumpking it improves it a bit but not 100%.

His poop has been checked multiple times for parasites, bacteria, etc - nothing. He is healthy as an ox, really thriving and looks great (weighed in at 40 lbs at 18 weeks), not lethargic at all, in fact crazy energetic. He doesn't have a huge urgency to poop and always poops in one spot (rather than squatting all around the yard like dogs do when they have real diarrhea).

Should I try some kind of dog probiotics? Any recommendations? I myself have been on probiotics for years due to an intestinal imbalance so maybe he just takes after me, haha.
