Roshi had his two rounds of sticky poop today. I'm not sure if it's something I should be concerned or not.

This morning, he was groaning and moaning while trying to pass some poop and when it came out, 1/2 of it was stuck on the ground, and the other on his bum. I thought it was from the corn nibbles that I dropped on the ground yesterday and he got to it, since his sticky poop had corn in it. However, once I cleaned him all up... butt bath at like frickin 6:30 am, he was all hyper and excited and chompped down the little amount of breakfast I gave him. So I know he wasn't sick.

THe sitter told me he pooped twice while he was wiht her. The poop was a little mushy, but she said overall he was ok. He came home with a nice clean butt.

Then tonight, another round of moan and groan of sticky poop. No corn. Butt bath 2. Afterward, he was all excited. However, I didn't want to give him dinner just to let his tummy settle a little.

But over the weekend, I gave him some canned puppy food. Just 1/4 can at dinner time. BF wanted the dog to celebrate Canada day. :S So could it also be the canned food? Is this sticky poop something to be concerned about?

Any new food will take adjustment and cause loose stools until they do adjust. My puppy is very sensitive. Any stress (ie a car ride or staying overnight when we're out of town) will result in a 1-2 days of looser stool for my dog. Super regular schedule and he's as right as rain. I always give my dog about 3 days before I'll let myself be concerned about looser poops or skipping meals. Usually after 2 days, my guy is back to normal.

Sweet. I figured if he's still playing, eating, and pooping (firm or loose), he should be fine. Well, no more can food for him (just a dumb useless celebration thing anyways). Kibbles again.

On the bright side... accident free for 5 days in a row.

WooHoo, I am glad Roshi has been accident free. Hopefully, you aren't as stressed as you were. I love his picture-he is too cute!

I've adjusted plus daycare helps. I'm counting down to the days when he'll start to calm down so he can come to work with me for a few days instead. Daycare is not cheap (but thank god for my recent raise!).

Good poop today. He's good to go again! Woohoo! :whoo:
