I am looking for suggestions on a high quality, budget-friendly food that will help reduce stool. I am not sure if “grain-free” is the way to go, or if there are any other criteria that would help. Any suggestions?
Other than raw my dogs have has the smallest firmest stools on Victors Grain Free
VeRUS – hands down. I have been feeding VeRUS for more than a year and my dogs are seriously happy & healthy. They love it. I have 2 dogs (one big, one little). My mom’s dog has been staying with me for a few months while my mom heals from an injury. Her dog (Greta) was eating Purina’s grain free when she got here in August. She was pooping 4 times a day. I switched her over to VeRUS when I ran out of her food. Now she poops twice a day. Poops are consistently bigger & firmer, too. I had to take Greta to the vet today for an ear infection. He commented on her overall health & weight – he was happily surprised – and asked what she’s eating. When I told him, he was also happily surprised to find out that VeRUS doesn’t stink like regular dog foods. It actually doesn’t have a discernible smell. The formulas with fish in it smells really fresh too.
You might have to order VeRUS (unless you live in the Maryland area). PetFlow will offer auto-ship so you won’t ever run out.
Overfeeding also causes more waste.
