    Over the last 2 days she's had a few nicely formed stools. Not super firm but a lot better than the gold colored soft serve of the last several weeks. We're still transitioning......down to about a 50/50 ratio of Wellness/Nutrisca.

    Since the Nutrisca doesn't have pro-biotics I ordered a bottle of capsules. The instructions say 1 capsule for dogs up to 40 lbs. and two capsules for those 40 lbs. and up. Of course Lucy is right at 40 pounds. Lol. Would 1 capsule be enough? 1 capsule = 500 mgs.

    The Gardia test came back negative.

    Thanks!
    Good news so far, keep us posted

    I'm declaring this one a case of chicken intolerance. Getting down to the end of a nearly two week long transition and she's had 6 nice, firm stools in a row.

    Maybe this explains why she got diarrhea on the raw diet? On that she had nothing but raw chicken.

    Another question, just for future reference.....if she was indeed sensitive to the chicken, is it odd that the only symptom was the loose stools? She didn't have any redness or itching, no watery eyes or anything.
