Hello, Trying to figure out which is better for a dog with very, very soft stools.
I have heard that “Grain Free” is better and been told that “Whole Grain” is the way to go.
I can’t speak about GF vs whole grain but I have to use a low fiber food for my Ginger. Earthborn Primitive Natural is 2.5% think, some of the Victor foods are 3.8.crazy4catsParticipant
Hi Sue S-
What are you currently feeding that you think miscasting the soft stools?
Have you taken a stool sample in to be tested for worms and/or parasites?Sue SMember
Hi, She is currently on Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein. Was on Science Diet (which I’ll never use again). The vet also has her on Proviable-Forte, paste & capsules. She has been on the Proviable-Forte several times too. All stool samples come back clear.
Trying this Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein route, (only temporary) but looking for a replacement “Dry” dog food and wanted to see if “Whole Grain” should be considered or “Grain Free” in my choices.GeeMember
Ok, yikes. My vet put my corgi on Hills science diet for loose stools. What are the cons of this brand?GeeMember
Can’t speak to the grain free/whole grain issue but I have a retired racing greyhound currently on T of the Wild Lamb and oh my have we ever had loose cow patties. Has been tested and negative for worms – I have added canned Pumpkin 1/8 cup once a day and voila. So if that’s of any help to OP – if not tried could be worth your effort. That’s plain canned pumpkin not pie filling. Good luck
