bulking up stool

So my vet told me that one of the reasons why D has had a new issue with full anal glands is because he's on a new food, this new food may not be providing enough bulk to his stool. The bulky stool pushes things as it goes through the proper channels and thus taking care of any full anal gland issues. This issue started about month after i switched foods. He recommended pumpkin.

Wanted to see if anyone had any other good suggestions. I don't want harder poop just bulkier.

Yes, pumpkin is very good. Plain not the one that is for pumpkin pie. Sweet potatoes, plain and baked. If the stools become harder just cut back. But a few tablespoons should not make it rock hard.
