    Default ...Concerned about poop

    My girl has had soft, runny poop the last 5-6 days. She has been acting fine, has tons of energy, eats well, drinks, sleeps fine. She has been on the same food for months so I don't see that as an issue. The poop at times is some what formed in the morning then in the afternoon and evening it's like soft ice cream.

    The only thing I could think was last weekend when it snowed,she was eating snow like crazy...she loved it!!, maybe she picked up something in the snow?

    I gave her yogurt with her food last night and this morning, I'll see what happens later. How long should I wait before I take her to the Vet?

    I would give her canned pumpkin not pie filling with her food for awhile and see if this helps. It ususally firms up poo..

    An increase in water consumption (snow eating) can affect poo - at least here at my house. Bea loves eating snow and it does make things softer upon exit. Now that the snow is gone, her creations are perfect again. Yeah. Could be snow. Laurie's pumpkin suggestion is a good one. It's good to have a can of pumpkin (not pie filling) in the house for these times - plus they love it.

    I do the same as @karenben suggested. Rest belly for 24 hours, few days of bland diet and then reintroduce kibble if all is well. Just had to do that with Chunk actually. The pumpkin is good too - my vet said at 53 lbs we could even do 2 tablespoons per meal if needed.

    We skipped lunch and cut back to a 1/2 cup of food for dinner and a tablespoon of pumpkin.....don't know if this is a coincidence but her poop was formed and perfect this morning....that pumpkin is a miracle cure!

    Whoohoo! It's always a good feeling when things are back to "normal". Pumpkin really is a miracle cure! I just hate cleaning up after it because if I don't get Chunk's face fast enough, he paints the house with it.

    I wish I had that much luck. Just got Tess a couple of weeks ago. Age 15 weeks. She's had wet poop since we had her. Sitting right now in the Vets office. Waiting!!!!
