    Default soft stools

    i switched Lula from eukanuba to acana wild prairie about a month and a half ago, her stools are formed but soft. is it acana or is it how much i've been feeding her?

    Try cutting back on the amount just a little to see if that helps. may just be too much food.

    As @Davidh stated.... could be too much food. How much are you feeding at meal time?

    @cowsmom - Isn't Acana really high protein for a bulldog?

    naw not really its 33%. i would try cutting back on the amount. acana is very good food so you should not have to feed near as much as eukanuba. lets us know how its going.

    A cup and a half doesn't seem like much how big and how old is she?
    Thanks,

    she's still a puppy 16 months, i'm wondering if acana has too much protein for a puppy. her stools are they same, even had diarhea last week so i fed her pumpkin. i'm worried, she looks like she's losing weight. thinking about buying the new acana with grains and mixing it with her food, maybe that will help her stool. i've been giving her a cup twice a day.

    @LulasxMom well no it should not be to much for 16 months old dog but if there is something in there not agreeing with your dog then yes. if its been a while and still diarrhea and weight loss then yes id look for something else to mix in and change over. i didnt think you could get acana with grains here. last time i checked they dont sell nothing but the grain free here something about usa not allowing milk thistle in their food and acana not wanting to change the formula. might be different now. if not there are other foods. i can help you when the time comes.

    @cowsmom yeah, i went to a local pet shop today where i usually buy her food and told the person working there her situation and i guess acana has a new flavor that has grains or something and he suggested i try mixing it with her food. it's not much of diahrea but semi soft stools. but thank you! i'm going to try to mix the acana and see what happens, i'll let you know what it works out.

    Soft stools can also be a sign of a parasite. If she is losing weight I would take her to the vet and bring a stool sample with you. She could have worms, coccidia or giardia.... All common in puppies.

    thanks, if things don't improve by changing her food by the next few days i will do that. i took her to the vet to get spayed a month ago and the vet told me she scaled a 3 and that she is in perfec condition but by eye balling it, she looks like she's lost some weight :\
