Don't know what you were feeding in the way of kibble, but this diet is REAL food and her body is probably absorbing/utilizing it! Many years ago when I switched my dogs to a raw diet, they didn't poop for 3 days and were each eating about 3 pound each per day!
When they finally did, it was the size of a rabbit!
When you start the kibble again, try adding canned pumpkin (NO spices) to her kibble and continue with the digestive enzymes and pro-biotics.
Just don't let it go on too long before you ask the vet.

Thanks MOM!!! shes acting normal in every way.
U R most welcome!
Maybe you should consider a raw diet????;)
Another way to do a partial raw diet is with The Honest Kitchen "PREFERENCE" (a base mix) to which you must add fresh meat (raw or cooked) for a complete balanced diet. It's dehydrated so don't be shocked by the price! 7 pounds re-hydrates to 24 pounds of food = $54.00. All Natural Dog Food - Dehydrated Pet Food | The Honest Kitchen
Let me know if you decide to and I can help!
Moms :)
