macoduck Posted September 28, 2015 Share Posted September 28, 2015 Mazy's poop is usually on the soft side. Recently she had a week of cowpatty poop. No changes in demeanor or activity. We stopped using Iams green bag a few months ago. Switched to a lamb and rice ProPlan. Regular soft poop on both. We've used owelo carrots in the past. Helped a little bit for a while. A bit too pricey to maintain use. Poop turned into cowpatties about the time that DH started doling out pieces of bread as treats. I asked him to stop giving her bread while I was out of town for a weekend. He did not scoop poop in the backyard plus it rained, so it was hard to tell if it firmed up (although I think it did). The no-bread experiment will continue. I read a post on GT where Metamucil was suggested. So today, for the first time, I added less than half a teaspoon of Benefiber (Dextrin) to her dinner. Added extra water in with her kibble. As soon as she was done eating she went to a back room and laid down. Didn't even get up to beg for DH's dinner. Did get up for one soft training treat but laid back down. This is so not like her. Googling Benefiber (Dextrin) and Metamusil showed both OK to give dogs. The amount I gave her was below the suggested amount for her weight. The only thing I can think of is possible gluten intolerance as the product label mentioned it and me thinking the bread may have given her soft poop? Anyone go through something similar?
