    Default solid poop that ends soft

    Frank is on fromms salmon tunalini. has been for about 2-3 months now. his poops always look good. not great but good. they start out at about a 7-8 in firmness on a scale from 1-10. but what comes out at the very end is more runny.

    his stool in general seems almost moist with air holes, it's lighter than you'd expect a dense, firm poop to be.

    is there something I should be doing differently to get a more ideal poop? is this even something I should be mildly concerned with?

    How old is he and how much do you feed at each meal?

    he's one year old and we feed approx 1-3/4 to 2 cups a day.

    he's about 45-50 lbs. @2BullyMama

    I would cut back a tiny bit at each meal... may just be too much for him. @bullmama - agreed?

    You could certainly try it, but that amount of food should be perfect. No extra treats or additives, supplements?

    Bella's poop is exactly like this, too. Maybe I'll try to cut back, too. Like you, Madie, I feed 2 cups a day, but I add coconut oil, fish oil, and ACV.

    We had Loki on fish oil for a while and it had a tendency to make his poop rather soft and sometimes runny. So we switched his food to Core Wellness Ocean formula and it has helped tremendously! He poop is completely normal now!

    It could be the food isn't a good match too, but yes too much oils can give that runny poo topper. I would try cutting back a bit first, and if that doesn't change anything then try doing a different Fromm like the Beef Frittatta or Pork & Peas, has he tried those yet?

    I also have this issue with Jake. Starts hard then almost at the end it gets soft and sometimes running. I feed him 2 cups a day.
    What I have observed is that if I don't give him yogurt or cheese, I get this issue. I just give him a slice of cheese and he is good to go. But then that's my Jake, he loves cheese

    he has not. I am thinking we will switch him to another protein and see how it goes. we cut back on the amount a bit and there's been no change since my original post. his skin is also flaking a bit so I think it's time to try a different fromm!

    From a "biological" view, this could be somewhat normal. The beginning of the movement, that stool would have been in the GI tract longer, with more fluid being removed. The end of the movement could still contain more fluid. My pup is the same way, has been for a long time. If she has missed a normal poop time, the next one will be like a cork in a champagne bottle.
