    Hello,

    Please be more specific about the poo. Yes, it's gross but watching the color and texture of the poo can tell you very quickly if there are problems brewing.

    So is it still the same size, shape and texture of when the poo was brown?

    No pic's please.

    Yes, poo can change color from different foods. With 7 Bulldogs, the color, texture and size of each of them varies including the color and they are all on the same food. More so than the difference in color is the texture of the poo. Dark is different than BLACK.

    Please post reply,

    G'day~

    when the previous owner sold her to me he was feeding her nutro max, so i was slowly mixing the one i feed my older males so she could get used to it, and its called pro pac....im guessing thats why her stool is coming out a darker color..

    Hi,
    As long as the texture stays the same, the color change is less of a concern.

    Loose black or runny is a BIG problem.

    Check back,
