What are you feeding? My oldest girl gets constipated and has really hard stool when she’s on a grain free food. I always much prefer using a GF food, especially because my pittie has allergy issues, but Ms.Sally just can’t handle it very well. Definitely try using pumpkin, you can get it pretty cheap at the grocery store, just make sure that its plain pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie filling. Hope that helps!
I use Optagest, which I love and it works really well for both my dogs and my wallet. The Optagest is a plant based enzyme and seems to really help my guys out, especially when transitioning foods. If I had the money, I’d definitely go with Herbsmith MicroFlora, very good product and a really, really great company.
First off, so sorry for the loss of your loved one, that’s never an easy thing to go through.
In regards to dog food, a lot of it is going to be trail and error as to what works for your dog! I highly recommend a grain free, but some dogs just can’t handle a grain free (my senior girl gets all constipated)… Champion Pet Foods is one of the best, I love that you can look at their website and find the specific ranches and lakes that their product is sourced from! Another great thing is that the meat is always fresh, never frozen. The fish come straight from the lake to their plant and into the dog food. Can’t get much better than that! But Orijen and Acana can be too rich for some dogs. Merrick has a really great GF food that is still high in meat content, but doesn’t seem to be as rich to the sensitive tummies, and they have a great range of flavors to choose from, which my guys always appreciate. Hope that helps! 🙂
