Hmm..something to look into! Thanks!
hmmm interesting. I wonder if I should risk changing his food again. He gets so sick on a lot of foods.
We are very slowly transitioning Sammy to Acana duck and pear right now. Since we didn’t have a food to use to transition him properly due to his apparent intolerance of the chicken and potato, I’m still using boiled chicken and pumpkin puree with the dog food-he thinks he’s in heaven lol. So far so good…keeping our fingers crossed this works. He did have some baaaad gas the other day and I was worried we were going down the intolerance path again, but his poop has been solid and blood free so far!
My dog used to have this issue. I have since added ground flax seed to his food-the fiber helps the glands express naturally. And he loves his “sprinkles” 🙂
Sammy goes to the vet every 2 months for a CBC, and he has a history of colitis with dietary issues and stress, so the streak of blood wasn’t too concerning. I did call his vet and he does want to see him if it doesn’t clear up, but on the flip side we don’t want to stress him out and increase make the issue worse…catch 22. He has been eating pumpkin, rice, and boiled chicken for a few days now, and I’m anxiously awaiting his poop to see if it’s more solid (I know that sounds gross-but it’s true!) Once he clears up, I guess I will introduce the new duck and pear Acana with some pumpkin/chicken and see how it goes. If it’s a no-go, I guess we’re going back to Royal Canin HP. Thanks guys-wish us luck lol!
thanks for the responses, guys! going out to get him pumpkin today-just took him out and his poop was super foul, loose, and there was some mucus and a small bit on red blood. He has had the small amount of blood before when he had some stress issues, so I figure this is just from inflammation. Otherwise he is acting fine and normal!
