So I switched my dogs from BB to TOTW Pacific..I switched them slowly but we still have had some soft stools.My question is:Why does their poop smell SOOOOO BAD!!!!!!! It literally can clear a room in record time!! Does anyone else have this problem?? They had the salmon BB so I dont think its due to the fish....??? Ideas? Its NASTY lol

It may be that the pup is ridding itself of all the grains and things in BB and adjusting to the new food, give it a full month and see....

When I switched Shenzi over she had very firm but very little stools. Now she's starting to have larger, on the softer side stools. Maybe add a little pumpkin?

Actually since Jake has been a consistent grain free food now for two months his stool is small, firm and no foul odor....the way it should be.:)

This is funny......so are you saying your poop doesn't smell? LOL it's dog s$%t, it's going to smell bad.
There is a difference between smelling like "poop" and being SO foul smelling that it makes you gag!

Often soft poop is a sign that they are being over fed. But that in addition to the room clearing smell could mean that it just doesn't agree with them.

We had that problem with a foster. And they were huge! I always wondered how much they were actually absorbing from the food.

I've actually had this problem with Orijen and Evo, but not with Taste of the Wild.

On Orijen, Ronja had really, really stinky farts and soft poops. On Evo, she had pretty big, soft poops but no gas. On TOTW I get nice stools and while she still occasionally farts, at least they don't smell.

:rofl: yes I know poop smells like $*** but this is AWFUL!! I actually had to take my female in to the clinic for a swollen face and they thought she had diarrhea because her gas was so bad. They even took a sample to be sure because they didn't believe me!!!!!! It hasn't been quite a month yet so I can definetly give it a little more time... I just have never had poop smell this bad!!!!! I am actually feeding slightly less than what they recommend on the back so I really dont think Im over feeding... I can definetly try the pumpkin, Im a big fan of adding this for any stool issues!

LOL I try and eat most organic but Im not perfect ;). Im concerned because the horrendous smelling poop comes with awful gas. The poop is also not firm like normal, its very soft. Not diarrhea, but not normal consistancy either

We feed TOTW and the poop stinks but it's poop and outside so no biggy. As for the toots, my Mini-Pin has the worst of all 3 of my dogs. We also feed the Pacific stream.
