Runny poop

So we have been feeding our gsd the wellness large breed puppy food and she hasn't had a solid stool yet...when we took her to the vet to get her rabies shot the vet said she was very healthy so could it be the dog food? Also if so what is another good kind to feed her that won't break the bank?

Absolutely, it could be the food.
I would start by checking the best dog foods on this website. Read the ingredients, figure out what you can afford, and choose the best for you and your dog.
Best Dog Foods
In addition, I highly, highly recommend the probiotics made by NOW.
After I started adding these, we had no more poop problems.

Your mileage may vary.

look at the link provided above, you will not see science diet or any grocery store food on the list.

A lot of people feed the Kirkland food made by Diamond, sold at Costco. It's a pretty good food.

I would get grain free for the puppy. It's to high in protein. Riley had issues with it making him grow to fast and limping. We switched to adult with grain dog food and he's doing better.

He also would get runny poo often. We started putting proenzymes on his food and that has solved the runny poo problem.

I would stick with something like Origen or blue buffalo they may be a little higher in price but well worth it
