    Default Puppy with the poops

    My Lucy I have had since the 12th of February and she started out ok poop wise then I took her to the vet and he said she is underweight so I added more food and she has had the poops ever since! I tried cutting back on food then she gets this again so I little by little add more and regardless of how much I am feeding her she has the poops! She also is a pooping machine! The good news is she always makes it to her litter box when she poops so that is a positive note! She is on Earthborn holistic grain free so im not sure what it is. Any ideas?

    I have no idea aside from no wing runny poo can be caused by too much food. obviously if she is losing weight tho that isn't it. Have you tried any diff food by chance? Can always add canned pumpkin to help with weight and but would be best to of course figure out the problem.

    She isn't loosing weight just when I try to back off the food she looses weight again but I am feeding her a cup three times a day and she looks perfect weight wise but her poop is so bad is sprays all over her litter box! I have a bag of fromm in the house I could try that but she would be going from grain free to the puppy fromm so it has rice and barley Im not sure how well she would do.

    Speaking to the vet on Thursday probably sounds good, maybe the food your feeding her is not agreeing with her tummy.

    Just back off a WEE bit, not by a lot. Also if you are wetting the food down, don't do that. By a wee bit I mean take out just 1/4 of a cup per day. See how the poo is in 48 hours. Even just a tablespoon too much food can give the mushies. Is any of her poo solid? Like the first one of the day?

    What is the fat content of the Earthborn compared to the Fromm?

    I think earthborn has more fat than Fromm but not sure.

    has this been from the beginning? or just since a food change etc???

    My experience with poops is so different than anyone else. I assume the vet has cleared her of a parasite issue. Keep us updated.

    Always with me

    She has been tested for worms and parasites and doesn't have either one although she did have worms when I got her but tested negative this last vet visit. She has always been on Earthborn since I got her at 6 weeks but its just been since she went to the vet three weeks ago and he said she needed to gain so I started adding more food and it has been like this ever since and the last week really bad! Today I backed off on her food and so far it is a little softer than soft serve but no pure water like it has been so hopefully this helps! Any one have any idea how to add weight that wont give my girls the poops?

    Boo! Hiss! Science Diet--yuck! He may want a stool sample so they can test for bacteria or parasites. I don't think increasing the amount of food would cause a problem if the food wasn't a problem before. Good luck and let us know what you find out!

    I have to ask ......... why is she on a grain free diet????? Is she already proven to have signs of an allergy to grain?
