    I have a 7 month old Lab that has loose stools and just had his 2nd UTI which was found when I took him in to be fixed (very early). First one was at 8 weeks old! Switched him over 10 days to Wellness core puppy, green mucus and smell to high heaven loose stools. Went to Nature Variety Instinct Rabbit, better but not good. Both have a Probiotic called Enterococcus Faecium which I have found others have a problem with! Found out Nature’s variety has removed it from new formula’s! Went to Annamaet Aqualuk which was good but still loose. Vet found in bloodwork he has the start of kidney disease which he hopes my puppy might grow out of but wants him on a under 30 protein, low phosphorus, around .7, low ash, low magnesium, grainfree, potato free, lower carb, 6-7 ph, diet. Only one I found is Zignature grainfree Duck w/ no Probiotics. 2nd choice Canine Caviar(much higher priced) Open sky or wilderness(vet doesnt’t want red meats right now though) or new formula Nature’s variety instinct LID Rabbit but the ash is higher. Just a thought for you…seems Probiotics can cause problems in some dogs! I am at my wits end over this and have spend alot of time researching foods and calling companies….will be starting him on Zignature this week.

    OMG! I am so glad I ran across this! I have a 7 months old Lab puppy I have been having issues with since I got him at 8 weeks old! Rushed to Vet the day after bringing home and had a UTI. First food I put him on was Wellness Core Puppy, 10 day slow transfer and within two weeks massive green slime and stunk to high heaven. Went to Nature’s Variety Instinct Rabbit (old formula) and better but still not good. Both have Enterococcus Faecium in them!!! Went to Annamaet and no green slime but still loose. Nature’s Variety seems to have taken this out of the new formula’s so I think there is something they found out too! Took my puppy in to be fixed and TG I had them run bloodwork and urine check and he now is showing signs of early kidney disease and had another UTI! Vet is hoping he out grows this but wants me to go with an under 30 protein, low Phosphorus, low ash, low magnesium, low eggs, grainfree, NO Probiotics dog food for now. The only one I can find is Zignature grainfree Duck which I will be getting this week. The other one I like is Horizon Pulsar Fish which has very few Probiotics and NO Enterococcus Faecium in it plus I can go back to Nature’s Variety Instinct LID Duck if I make sure it’s the new formula…thoughts anybody?
