antisense Posted July 5, 2013 Share Posted July 5, 2013 I've had a massive schedule change with work, and JJ's feedling/pooping schedule has been completely turned around! As I expected, the first few days were pretty awful when it came to potty walk time. I considered bringing out the paper plates again and playing catch, but JJ is a poop walker and I'm not great at catching... It's been about a week now, and poops are still pretty soft. They are pickupable if you do it very gingerly, otherwise they fall apart and then there's no hope of getting it in the bag. I'm crossing my fingers that with some more time he'll go back to his normal, but for now what can I give him that will make potty time less unpleasant? What we've tried: -Canned pumpkin - doesn't change his poop apart from making it bright orange -Yogurt - no effect -Oatmeal - trying it right now, 1/4 cup of cooked oats twice a day, not sure if it's doing anything Background into: JJ's poops have never been consistently solid. They were typically solid in the morning, and fairly soft by the end of the day. We haven't checked for worms or parasites recently, but there's been no big change in consistency so I haven't been concerned. He's been eating a mix of kirkland lamb and rice mixed with prepared raw feed since we've got him. I haven't tried completely raw feeding him yet to see if that would be better, but I might try a different kibble in the future to see if it would improve things. I don't really have the freezer space to store all that raw food so I'm hoping not to go the all-raw route.
