Hey!

Have you tried giving Mojie probiotics for a month? How about slippery elm? I would use both, for 2-4 weeks daily and see if it helps after you've stopped.

What is Mojie eating?

Hi Moni!
Sorry to hear about Mojie. I would try a probiotic like Kelly/Muzby suggested. Have you changed his food recently? If not, maybe the manufacturer did?? A bland diet (boiled chicken & rice) might help to settle his stomach until you get it figured out. Keep us posted on how he's doing.

Ha! Ha! No, not 5... yet! :)
Is it runny poop or just soft poop? You could take him to your vet just to be on the safe side. Yeah, as suggested above pumpkin works great too.
You can get probiotics at any health food store.

What pills was he on? What was the vet's diagnosis? Sometimes things can take another round of antibiotics to clear up. I would try the probiotics, the pumpkin (if you can find it) and/or the slippery elm, they all work like a charm, but it also depends on what is causing the soft stools.

Ahh, LOVE your new siggy pic! :D You're crew is just TOO CUTE!!

Has he had soft stool since switching to the RC? If so maybe it's just a food he can't tolerate? Some pups just don't do well on kibble at all - I'm sure this isn't the case for MoJie. But maybe his tummy just doesn't like that particular food. I personally love the dehydrated raw foods & we've added 2 into our pups diet w/o any belly issues at all even though we added them "cold turkey". They're just super gentle on their tummies all around & digest really well. We're feeding ZiwiPeak & the Honest Kitchen btw.

Anyway, I hope you're able to figure out little MoJies troubles. :)

Honestly I bake biscuits for my dogs and they are full of oats and stuff and when they have them their poo is really nice and hard.

I started doing them again last week after a break because Tillie has soft poo which isn't good for her anal gland problems and now they're back to nice firm poo's.

I just knocked up another batch about an hour ago that just finished baking. The ingerdients are really cheap and last ages so you can make loads and loads from them whenever you like.

If it comes to shop bought biscuits or these they grab these first. If you want the recipe let me know.

I can't tell you enopugh how much they love them and how easy they are to make. And their poo is so firm when they have them.

Also when I ran out of Royal Canin and couldn't get it here for a few days as the shop was out of stock I had to get something else and their poos were soooooo soft and light brown. Now back on RC and their homemade treats they are 100% better.

I feel your pain lol. Bryco was the same, even on the best kibble out there, his poos were so gooey and soft still. Switching him to THK immediately solved the problem which I am still thankful for to this day. Some dogs just don't do super well on kibble.

I would consider changing his food and giving him what the others said

When Skylar was a puppy, she had slimy colitis which made her stools very soft. The vet said to give her Forta Flora or yogurt. I purchased a package of Forta Flora from the vet and gave her some every day. Her problem cleared up. However, it returned later. I never in my wildest dreams could imagine that a dog would eat yogurt (I'm used to Mr. Picky Bizkit!) but I bought Dannon Vanilla yogurt and she absolutely loves it (actually they all three do). So I would just give her about a tablespoon of yogurt every evening for a couple weeks and her problem would clear right up. She hasn't had an episode in a while (she's now 9 months old) so I'm hoping she's outgrown it but, if not, I know exactly what to do about it.
However, our situation is different from yours b/c we had a diagnosis and you don't. But if you're trying things, you might try a little yogurt--I don't think it can hurt anything. Best of luck!

I agree that a teaspoon or so of yogurt a few times a week is a good idea too -- we use the plain dannon one, usually low fat. They love it and I just top their food with it. I figure its a good idea to continually reintroduce good bacteria to their systems -- they each such icky things when we are out!
