    Default Diarrhea once a day

    Hello all,

    Our bully is 3 years old she's been on mostly Orijen her whole life, as of a few months ago she has started to have soft to runny poop once a day (mostly the last poop of the day), she's been on probiotics, we have tried several GI sensitive foods, adding pumpkin etc. She has had allergy testing and is we are currently switching her to GO Salmon Limited Ingredient food since fish was the lowest on her allergies. She has no other symptoms and seems completely unbothered by this once a day event. She of course has also been tested for parasites, Giardia, worms etc. We feed her twice a day according to the feeding guidelines and she gets nothing no other food, we've removed all additional things she was taking (salmon oil, glucosamine chews) just in case but no luck. Anyone encountered the same?

    It might be too much food... the bags always list more than needed (you'll buy more).... try cutting back just a little bit and see if it makes a differnence

    Orijen is top notch kibble but you need to give less as Christine said. Orijen is very rich. You can also switch her to Acana since it’s the same company. No big transition there. But start giving less see how that goes. Odd it’s only the last poop.

    Btw how much are you feeding per day?

    She's getting 2 cups total daily (bag calls for 1.5-2 cups daily), but isn't weird that she would only start reacting to this as of a few months ago?

    Not really, just like us chemistry changes and it may be it no longer agrees with her.
