How much pumpkin?
 
How much pumpkin would a 40ish lb puppy get to try to help get rid of "pudding poops"? And how many times a day?

I give about 1 tablespoon 2x a day and have had results within a day or so.

Yeah, couple tablespoons full. I don't measure it. Just a glop. It's not something you can really overdose on. Hope your pup's feeling better soon!

Thanks guys. https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...RL%%/smile.gif I had read about people giving a tablespoon or so but that was always for an adult dog. So I didn't know if a puppy got the same amount or less.

Just an FYI - Pumpkin was a cause of runny poop for Chaos. He can't tolerate it, or yogurt or green beans. https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...%/16_shrug.gif

Thanks. https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...RL%%/smile.gif So far the only thing that miss "garbage gut" has had an "issue" with is a different brand of kibble that she decided to got into. https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...n_rolleyes.gif The only food I have found that she WON'T eat is lettuce. And so far, none of it has bothered her system.

I give 2 tablespoons to both dogs, they love it. I bought lots of pumpkin cans on sale so I give it to them once in a while like a treat.

Also I give them probiotics. http://www.myhealthmyworld.com/coop/...log/JR-309.jpg

Tracy,

So she was fine until getting into the wrong food that caused the diarrhea or soft stools. I can understand that... but once you got her back onto her regular food her system didn't get better?

I always think adding new things the dog has never had continues the problem until their system gets used to it. No saying that pumpkin wouldn't work to firm her up but it could have the reverse reaction too. Just my thoughts.

No. The "getting into a different food" was a month of so ago. That only lasted 1 day, then she was fine and back to "normal".

This time it is from antibiotics that she was on.
