Ok, this isn't about my hav..but the newbie.
Since the day we got him, he's had pretty loose poops. But, he was in a new home, had been given lots of dewormers, they were feeding him adult dog food
I took a bit of that, and changed him over to the puppy food of the same brand. Science Diet. My others are on Bill Jac right now. The vet happened to be out of bill jac puppy food at the time, so I just went with the SD, since that's what he'd been on anyways.
Those are pretty much the only options at our vets. Our petsmart is about 45mins away, and I need to try to keep them on something I can get to fast, if I run out or something (hard enough to remember to keep milk in the fridge for four kids). But, I'm not against trying something else. I just hate buying big bags, cause I don't have anywhere to really store them right now.
Soooo...like I said, he's constantly had yucky poop. Some days it's REALLy bad. I took a stool sample in Mon to check for more parasites and it was neg. They just said he's probably getting used to the food still.
Well, we've noticed he maybe poops once in the day. But, it's in the middle of the night that he whines to be let out, then rushes out to the yard. This happens 3, 4 times a night. Some nights it's only once. There have been a couple that he didn't need out at all. I'm trying to remember if I gave treats more or at all on certains days. Thinking it could be the little treats I use to get everyone to sit down when DH comes in the door.
Anyways, this can't go on. I feel terrible for him. And I'm losing sleep.
I know the treats have chicken, so does the puppy food. Any thoughts on what else I can try?? I'm hitting Petsmart AND the vet's tomorrow to stock up on stuff.
