IAMs Posted July 13, 2013 Share Posted July 13, 2013 Maya (our 10 year old brindle bullet) has been having TERRIBLE (can I emphasize that more?) poops for a couple months. The first one of the day is usually good... and then we go downhill from there. Her second and third poop of the day are usually runny mush. A couple weeks ago, we had some poops (pardon the analogy) that were more similar to chocolate milk than poop. Yeah... TERRIBLE!!!!! We haven't made any changes to her diet. For years, she's been on Science Diet Sensitive Stomach. When we adopted Ashe a year and a half ago, we slowly added in Blue Basics until we were at a 50/50 mix. Everything we going great. But over the last few months, it's just gotten worse and worse. So we eliminated the Blue Basics and went back to 100% SDSS, but we're still having the same types of problems. We've added white rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes... all the things that we know of that are to firm things up. We've tried probiotics, too, but nothing seems to settle her tummy down. We've taken stool samples to the vet, and the tests have come back clear... no parasites. The vet's suggestion is that we may need to go to a prescription food to see if we can firm things up. Does anyone have food suggestions, or ANYTHING else that might help us out?
