    Default Omg i need help.... poopy help

    Ok so Gator is crate trained house trained. My other dog spot is house trained but never crated... Alllll of a sudden now Gator is pooping all over his crate during the day while we are gone... We did switch his food slowly from beneful to blue buffalo but it seems he only poops and not just once like at least 3-4 dumps... Anyone have any ideas or suggestions Please help I hate coming home to clean poop and wash bedding all the time

    Boy I can't blame you a bit! I'm wondering if you might be feeding him too much? The new food is much richer than Beneful! So you feed less. Obviously, the food change has started this so either the food isn't agreeing with him or too much food? If it was not agreeing with him, I think he would have runny poo. @desertskybulldogs

    How much are you feeding? I would maybe cut back depending on how much your feeding...It could also be it doesnt agree with him..

    What is the consistency of the poop?

    I feed him 1/2 cup of new food and full cup of beneful, have been doin that for a week prior it was 1full cup.beneful and 1/4 cup new food.. the first week he waa fine wouldn't poop in his crate. Now this week he's been dumping it started semi solid (solid enough to pick up easily) now its lil more squishy I only free him twice a day and always let him out for 20mins before bringing him back in, he's also peeing on my concrete... Should I keep giving beneful and go back to 1/4 cup of bb?? I boyfriend hin the grain free brand, could he possibly be on the wrong one?

    It seems like you may be feeding too much. As you increase the new food, you need to decrease the old food the same amount. If the problem doesn't get better, then I suggest you go back to 1/4 new as it was when he was doing well. If the problem continues after that, then you may need to try different food. Good luck. It can be trying, but so worth it when you find the best food for them.

    Yes...you for sure are over feeding. You don't increase the total amount of food. If you have always fed a cup each feeding..then you start with 3/4 cup old food with 1/4 new food...for 3 days///then 1/2 old with 1/2 new for 3 days/// then 3/4 new with 1/4 old for 3 days/// then all new... 1 cup twice a day...right?

    Great advice I'll go back to 1/4 new and do 3/4 old hopefully that'll help him and me too!!

    Yes dont forget 1/4 c of the good food is about equal to 1/2 cup of beneful.... So while switching you should also be decreasing the amount of kibble you are giving. Hope this helps! Keep us posted

    Dont forget when you wash his bedding, and wipe down his kennel with an Enzyme based product... give the puppy a good bath ! cause if he smells like #2 it will make it harder for him to separate 'My Den' for 'My Potty area' But I too agree, probably over feeding him. Maybe feed him earlier in the morning and give him more time than just 20 mins to do his business? I let Hershey 'Perculate' for about 20-30 minutes then put him out to do his business
