Trouble finding a good dry food
Hi all, just looking for some suggestions and to see if maybe someone had a similar issue and found a food that worked good. I've had a constant battle with soft stools.
When I got my puppy, he was on raw food, and everything was fine. I chose to take him off raw because it wasn't practical for me at the time. We travel, so taking raw everywhere was not easy.
I have since tried the following:
Acana LBP - was on this for the longest. Switched off it to try something without chicken to see if it would help with the soft stool.
Tried Acana Pacifica for a while and ranchlands with a fairly similar result. Would be good for a little while and then he would go through bouts of soft stools.
After all that I tried putting him on a food with a bit of grain in it to see if that would firm things up and used Fromm LBP. That was about the same, but seemed a little better. After a month or two on that, I switched to Costco, salmon and sweet potato. He now has firm stool, but there's an unholy amount....like 3x the normal quantity. He will sometimes have to go twice in the same walk to get it all out. I also, don't trust the manufacturer of the Costco food, so I don't want to use it longterm.
Now, when he has soft stool, I can give him pumpkin daily and it will mostly counteract it, but I feel like I should be able to find a good quality food that would work for him.
Just wondering if anyone has some suggestions for what I can try next. Sorry about the long post!
