So, both boys seem to have very loose stools lately, every once in a while I'll pick up a firmer one, but usually it is just too runny and I have to get the hose out and spray the yard. So Eddie (our 6 month old) was on IAms puppy- Now I know not good. That is what he was fed at the breeders and I kept him on once he got home. However, he has always gone through spells of loose and runny. So, then we get Lenny (11 months old) about 3 weeks ago and change him over from Purina Healthy Morsels (they had him on adult food since 6 months or so) to the Iams puppy. So now neither dog was having good poop. I started to do some reasearch here nd found out the I was feeding my babies junk (BF is so informative!), and changed them to Chicken Soup for Puppies. I did a gradual change over, but now they both stink soo bad we have to put them in the other room to watch TV. And the poop is still runny! I went out last night to look for another option, but it is so limited here in Hawaii. I found Merrick Puppy Plate, which a friend here uses and loves for her Huskies, but it was 50 dollars for a 33 pound bag. If it works I guess I'll suck it up and pay the price tag for healthy tummies. My question is though, after switching over food, how long should it take for the tummy to become adjusted. I know that I'm going from 1 star to 3 star to 5 star, so that might be hard, but when should I be looking for firmer poop? I started to add Merrick yesterday for the last meal, and Eddie went out twice through the middle of the night with runnies. Aggh. Thanks for your input!
