stool problems still - probiotics?
With Simcoe's initial round of stool issues they just put her on a low fat diet for a few days and gave her anti inflammatories, that seemed to sort her system out fine, but she was spayed a few days later. Her first few poops after her spay were also solid, but after that they regressed.
As the vet had said that it's just an imbalance of good vs bad bacteria in her stomach, I started giving her coconut oil with her food instead of going back to the vet because when I phoned they just told me to come back for more anti inflammatories, which seems to be fixing the symptom and not the cause to me!
Anyway, her food will be running out in about a week and a half, she did well on it for the first week before all of this started. Should I switch her? She's currently on Acana duck and pear, which is theoretically good and doesn't contain any of the more common allergens. I've found that as soon as I skip coconut oil in a meal her stool texture gets soft immediately. Or maybe adding some probiotics? I didn't see any difference in texture when I was adding plain yogurt. Any advice would be wonderful!
