haha. I just meant I don't do groceries for my household, and only ever buy groceries for my Pup.

Ute Hi there, I want to pick up on the description of the poop - always a popular topic. Has this just been a one off or do you see a soft or runny affair regularly? Also, how is your dog's weight? There are always various possibilities with underlying digestive issues and things like probiotic yoghurt can help. Pumpkin helps firm the poop but doesn't solve the problem if there is one. As Sunflower suggested, another protein could help if there is an allergic reaction to chicken. The most important possibility you want to eliminate is: epi (equine pancreatic insufficiecy). Watch the poops and weight, because if your dog can't digest properly the result will be huge and tyically runny, mucousy and increasingly yellowy stools. If this is an ongoing concern, the vet can do a test. It may not be this at all, but if it is, it needs managing immediately, usually with digestive enzymes. Hope this helps.

marshies It is VERY small.
There isn't a whole ton of meat on this chicken.
I don't buy human groceries, so I googled up cornish hen and it looks to have less meat than that.

Either way guys, thanks for the contributions. I've sent her off today to board since i'm flying out tomorrow...I've asked the boarder to keep an eye. She was sent off with Orijen 6 fish and a carton of eggs to entice her to eat the kibble.

In terms of transitioning, Puppy has always transitioned well, she does well on all proteins, does great on kibble and raw. She really doesn't have issues...except this ONE time. In the past, her digestive issues were always linked to playing in fresh water. I suspect this may be similar, or it may be that I fed too much. Either way, I'm hoping she'll be fine. My parents are still in the city if, heaven forbids, she does need vet care.

Thank you to everyone who took time to respond.

I think they're smaller than that. I saw it at a Chinese store. I didn't study it but it looked like an anorexic chicken.
