Teddy is a little over 3 months old now. The breeder was feeding him Eukanuba puppy chow and MightyDog wet food. I still use some of the Eukanuba that she gave me a bag of, but I mix it in with the Innova puppy food that I got for him. Instead of MightyDog (because they don't carry it at any stores that I recognize around here), I give him Merrick canned food, but I'm not sure if I'm feeding him the correct amount.
Here's the website for Merrick:
The Merrick food comes in a regular sized can, so I usually give him 2-3 spoonfuls, and put the rest of the can in the fridge. The thing is, the food is very gravy-heavy, with chunks of potatoes, carrots, turkey meat, and "dog food" looking bits in it. He tends to kind of ignore his dry kibble (which I keep out for him all day, along with fresh water), but he eats those 2-3 spoonfuls of wet food TWICE a day (usually he can eat one meal all in one sitting). As a result, his poop is sometimes kind of runny, and when it is more solid, it has a fatty look to it. I'm concerned that it's the gravy that's responsible.
Is it bad for him to have the gravy? Should I try to dry the solid parts (like the meat and veggies) off a bit? Ultimately, is having yucky poop bad for him as long as he's drinking normally, or does it just indicate that he needs to get used to the new food?
