10 year old German Shepherd w/loose stools
I'm in search of a good Senior dry dog food for my 10 year old male German Shepherd. For what its worth. He has bulging discs and has to take 10 mg of Prednisone every day along with 300 mg of Gabapentin for nerve pain. He's been on these medications for two years. For his first 8 years he ate Taste of The Wild and did just fine with it. But the Vet told me that I should put him on a senior food now to decrease the chances of kidney damage especially since he's on daily Prednisone. I was told to look for a food that's relatively low in protein, sodium and phosphorus. I've tried Hills Science Diet Senior, Blue Senior, Performatrin Senior and Wellness Complete Senior. And his stools are loose with each of them. I've even been giving him "Drs. Foster and Smith brand" Probiotic soft chews. And nothing so far seems to firm up his stools. I'm assuming his stomach must be upset all of the time if his stools are loose. I know that's how it would be for us humans. So does anyone have any suggestions on a good senior dry dog food that may help us out?
