I have a pumpkin question for you. Timmy has been eating a combination of dry Blue Buffalo Wilderness™ Duck Recipe and canned Nature's Variety Instinct Grain Free Chicken Formula mixed together. Timmy has had a tendency of developing loose stools, not all the time, but enough to be a pain if you know what I mean. He's been seen by the vet previously, brought stool samples which turned out to be negative and was subsequently put on antibiotics. Recently however, during another bout of pudding poops, I have been adding canned pumpkin to his feeding regiment and he's been fine. So my question is, do I continue adding pumpkin to his meals, or do I need to look into the possibility of finding a new food which allows me to stop adding pumpkin? I don't mind adding pumpkin, but was curious who all out there adds pumpkin consistently to their dog's diet? Obviously I'd rather keep using the food I'm using and adding the pumpkin and not have to call my vet but let me know if you think there are any red flags I could be overlooking and if I should follow up with my vet even though we're back to normal at this point.
