A lot of great info on this topic. Considering trying Blue Buffalo Wilderness LBP. Anyone have any experience with this food? My previous dog, a Lab, did well on the regular Blue Buffalo formula. I like what I read about the Wilderness line.

Well after switching my boy from Victor over to Blue Buffalo Wilderness over the past few weeks, his coat has improved but his stools are still soft. He eats the whole serving every time. I can tell he likes this food much better. Just wish I could get his stools on the normal side.

Definitely encouraging!

Before doing anymore switching, I might try some probiotics. I tend to favor those from the refrigerated section that contain acidophilous, bifidous, and bulgaricus, but there are lots of good products out there. I used to use solaray's multidophilous 12 - pretty economical, but it's not available around here anymore.

There are threads around here on probiotics, but I'm not sure how well the search function works. Let me know if you can't find them.

Thanks for the recommendations. I don't plan on switching food for a while. Would like to see how he does on this once he's gotten used to it. I will look into the probiotics. Thank you!

Happy to report that after fully transitioning to the new food, Kane has normal stools! Never thought I'd be so excited over poop.

Just throwing this out there for future puppy feeders.

Sometimes a puppy needs their daily total split into more meals.
Dante ate x3 a day for a looooong time as his GI Tract was not happy after a long run with hard to Dx Giardia.

When I got Kaos she moved to x2 a day quicker than Dante did but I took it slow.

Soft stools are very often caused by over eating, those bellies are pretty little in the beginning!!
