Guest Sourbuzz Posted July 29, 2013 Share Posted July 29, 2013 So we have had our grey for about 1.5 months now. He's an 80 lb male. We have been feeding him Sam's Club "Exceed" (Chicken) and his poop has rarely been what we've wanted. It's usually loose, seldom runny, and has an orangish color. The foster parent uses this brand with her dogs and says its fine, however I think we need to switch. I have also been using a lot of treats (very small portions) for training and walking and I think this is exacerbating the issue. He has also been going about 3-4 times daily. We let hiim out before work, usually at lunch (sometimes he'll poop then and sometimes not) and then after dinner, and then once before bed (usually only goes pee). I know that every dog is different and some poop more than others, but we would really like to see if there are any alternatives. He doesn't seem to mind and seems happy as ever but every person worries I guess right?Are there any brands, that can be found in Southwestern PA, that anyone recommends? Our goal is to have his poop a little harder and, if it needs changed, less frequent.I know a lot people go to Costco and Sam's Club, but as of now, we don't have memberships and were wondering if any pet stores carry something?Also, recommendations for how to ween him into it? I know that you should start with 25% of the new food/75% of the old food, then gradually work up until at 100%. Is that right?Thanks for any help in advance!
