Default New food - soft poo

Hi All! So we recently did a gradual switch from the food the breeder had Kegger on, Purina One Puppy to Earthborn Puppy. He was doing good through the change, now that we are on Earthborn completely he has soft poops. Normal? Been on the new food only for about 4 days now.

Didn't know how long I should let him have soft poops for.

Thank you!
Nicole

It could be a little rich for him. Check the ingredients for fruit or sweet potato.
You might need to mix a little more solid kibble to it.

I would give it a little longer four days is not really long enough to tell. Check to make sure there are no other allergy symptoms such as red face red Paws you know things like that but if he's fine then I would give a little more time. If it continues then maybe you may have to change. Just be patient .

So we still have diarrhea. We are on about 2 weeks on the new food. However, it got better for 2 days. So I'm wondering if it's something other than the new food. We let him chew on a deer antler and I'm wondering if that's the culprit. Taking the antler away for a few days and see if his stool gets better. Any thoughts on deer antlers?

I wouldn't think a deer antler would do it. Maybe try some canned pumpkin (not pie filling) see if that helps

Been doing some pumpkin. Going to stop antlers, treats, etc. until we can figure out what it is. All he will get is food for now with pumpkin and metronydazole. Hoping we can figure out what's doing it. Would hate to have to change his food. Thank you again!

Yes when dealing with food issues its best to just feed it to see what's going on.

So we are on our 2nd day of Metronidazole and JUST food. Poop is definitely looking better and there's a bit less of it. Hoping once we finish the meds in 10 days that it stays solid. Letting him chew a nylabone or squishy toys - no antler, no treats....when we doing command training we just use his kibble which he seems to enjoy. I was giving him Fruitables treats - loaded with fruit. I looked at the ingredients on his food - also lots of fruit. So we cut out the treats. Also added some pumpkin daily, which he can't get enough of.

Will keep ya posted!! Thanks!!

Taking everything away except for his kibble is a good idea. Fruits can give them
diarreah so avoid those treats. Antlers are rich and can do the same thing. Also give
him a tablespoon or so of yogurt for a few days to bring back the good bacteria.

Carrot slices make good treats and are good for them.
