Hi, I wasn't sure whether to put this in food &diet or health & medical so I went for the latter. Dan's poo is almost alays solid in the morning but by the evening he is always very soft. It took me 3 years to find a food that at least made him solid in the morning and I know he can't tolerate beef. My question is: Is there a possible reason why he seems to need to have had his food in his system for at least 12 hours for a solid poo? Has anyone come across this before?

Hello.

 

Soft poop is never fun!

 

It very well could be excess stomach acids that are causing the loose poop, and having food in his stomach, helps absorb the acids. You could try Pepcid AC or it's generic (*not sure if is available in the UK). You could also try feeding a few smaller meals, a few times a day. Either might help.

 

Sorry to hear you are going through this! Good Luck!

Solidity of poop for my hound is always related to how long it's been since the last one. I don't think there's anything at all unusual about that, or poop being looser in the afternoon than in the morning. The longer it stays in the colon, the more water is reabsorbed into the body. Though if it's really runny you might still not have found the perfect food (alas). Beth generally has good afternoon poop on TOTW Pacific Stream.
