never tried them. What are you currently feeding? Are you having a hard time putting weight on your dog?

Yes. Currently I feed him Canidae Lamb and Rice All Life Stages. I switched many variety of dog food, like Nature Variety, Taste of the Wild, Meradog Pure, but his stools never had consistent form; like one day solid, and another jelly like. And he is losing his weight. Now he is 16 months and he only weighed 30 kg.

I never try raw because I live in Indonesia where the hygiene of the raw food were low. I desperately need your suggestions. I used probiotics and now use Weight Gainer that contains probiotics too. Today his first stool were nice, but in the afternoon were liquid.

To much probiotics can also cause loose stools. I would fast your dog for 24 hrs and only offer him chicken broth instead of water/food.

Then cook him up some rice and ground beef. Offer it in the ratio of 3:1 and see if his stools remain solid. Once he has had solid stools for 3 days I would then slowly start to add back in some kibble. I am not a fan of Canidae , it did not agree with my dogs at all.

What other kibbles are available to you? Can you get Fromm's or Acana? If you can get Acana, get the Wild Prairie variety.
