Hello my fellow EBD lovers. Recently brought home my new baby boy Nugget. 0696F2A9-B821-4768-B6E7-56C182E67A83.jpeg Slowly weened him off food Breeder was feeding him (Victor) to Hills Science Diet chicken and brown rice flavored because my vet recommended. He keeps having wet poos. Kind of like soft serve ice cream. No other symptoms besides the soft poos. Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on food or tips to help with this!

Thank you!! :)

Welcome! Nugget is sure a cute nugget.

Your problem is definitely Hills. Totally full of grains. Vets gets a kickback from Hills, Royal Canin so plz avoid them brands cause they are full of grains n numerous recalls n very sick dogs.

Raw is the best way to feed any dog, if not raw, top quality kibbles are Acana, Fromm, Zignature…look for a high count of protein from “meat” n not legumes. Read the bag’s ingredients. Great puppy kibble is definitely Orijen. Rotation of protein is a must to avoid future allergies.

You will find tons of great info on nutrition in the search button above to your right. This is a question that we see very often. But yes get him off Hills. You can buy organic pumpkin purée, give him a tablespoon at meals as it will help the soft stools. Make sure it’s NOT pumpkin purée for pies. :)

Thank you for the helpful information. I am going to purchase Origen grain free tomorrow. How should I start incorporating it? Slowly start mixing it with his current food (Hills) for a week?

How should I start incorporating it?
The idea of a slow transition is to help stave off the "Soft-Serve Stools". Since he already has the SSS, there's little to be gained by a slow transition. If he were mine to feed I'd go right at it with the Orijen. Keep in mind that SSS can also be cause by too much food. Try feeding 1/2 Cup 3x/day for 3 days and note what happens. Please report back.
Unless he's abnormally big or very active he should eventually(by the time he's 10-12 months old) be eating 1 Cup x2/day.

And there you go. Sorry was busy yesterday couldn’t answer you but Chip did :)

Glad the stools are better. Orijen is very high in calories but very nutritional. Stick to quality so you avoid issues. Like previous mentioned Hills n Royal Canin great for farm animals :yes:

Keep them photos coming.
