Fiber percentage in food

I have a 5 mth old puppy that has primarily soft stools, I have had a couple of regular stools but the majority of the time they are soft. I told my vet and he suggested I read up on EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency) IBS, and food allergies. I have read thread after thread about puppies with loose stools and they all talk about all types of different foods and of course opinions differ all over the place. Has anyone researched about how the percentage of fiber in the foods suggested might be attributing to the loose stools? I currently have my puppy on Royal Canin GSD Puppy 30, fiber percentage 3.5, grind her food, add digestive enzymes, and feed her 4 times a day, still have soft stools. I looked into the BB LBP and it sounds good except for the fiber percentage is very high, 6.5 percent. Not sure if that would make matters worse??

Definitely try a different food. If you like BB I suggest Wilderness LBP.

Just throwing this out there.
Any chance you're over feeding a little. I did it before.
