    Default Another Food issue!

    So as many of you know Lucy has been having problems with food and that is a understatement! So we finally found a salmon food that makes her poops pretty solidish but she goes big piles and 12 to 15 or 16 times a day! I am not sure how that much poop can go through that little body but does this mean the food is not agreeing with her? My concern is maybe it has a lot of filler in it? I am giving her LID Simply nourish salmon and sweet potato. What you think @cowsmom

    Is she pooping more than she's eating? Because it sounds like it! Of so she is probably allergic because it sounds like its not digesting. How long has she been on the new food? Any chance you are giving her more than she needs per day? Are you giving any probiotics or yogurt?

    My quess is that it's the firdt ingredient on the list. This food is not salmon, potato. In my opinion dogs don't need that much carbs, it just doesn't digest. That is one reason dogs on raw food poop so little. It's highly digestible.

    Yes she is eating way more than she is pooping! This food stuff just has be so frustrated! Im not sure what food to put her on or what she needs! I wish I could fins a fish and pea formula that was a 4 or 5 star food but haven't had any luck yet! My pantry is full of dog food that we have been through trying to find the right one! Seems like all she can have is fish and maybe not potatoes? I am going online to look now!

    ok dear i dont have alot of time so forgive me. i dont think your dog should be pooping that much. even at her worst sarah never went that much. im assuming your dog is over 1 so id be feeding it 2/3 cup twice a day to start and no treats at all. see if the poop gets better. you can also add some canned pumpkin or sugar free unflavored metamucil to help the if you are looking for a fish and pea food dogswell nutrisca is just that check it out. this food is well something you give if they have allergies n you dont have anything else. this line is not bad but sweet potato for a first ingredient is not good really and has a few fillers.

    My first thought is that maybe you're feeding her too much to have that amount of poop!!!

    She is 3 and a half months so still a young puppy she is getting 3/4 a cup 3 times a day then you have to be prepared because she is amout to leave land mines all over! Her food is way less than what she is pooping how is that possible? I am going to check out the food listed above and also when she was on the bland diet right before I put her on this food she didn't poop like this! I have taken her to her vet and he really is of no help!

    Oh and I should add that on her wide side of her face she is getting tear stains so I have learned on here that can be a dead give away on a food issue.

    @2BullyMama-I was just looking at that and that may be on option! I have never tried her on pork so don't know how that would work. I noticed it is on petflow now!
