Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi all! Axe is 3 going on 4 months old. I've just started switching him from Pedigree mixed with a bit of milk to Acana Puppy, with 75% Pedigree and 25% Acana and a little bit of water instead of milk. His stool has started becoming watery with bits of solids, and he has taken to sleeping a lot. Should I be worried?

He could be sleeping a lot if he is dehydrated from his watery poop. Make sure he a lot of fresh water. Why were you mixing Pedigree with milk just of out curiousity? My puppy has been on Acana since we brought him home and it's an excellent kibble. He could be adjusting to the new kibble which could take a little over a week.

The breeder was mixing Pedigree with milk since the kibble was a bit hard. axe's poop has now gone firm again after we removed the milk and the water. We are still keeping the ratio at 75% Pedigree and 25% Acana, and plan to make it 50%-50% after a week.

Mixing cows milk with dog food is a good way to provoke diarrhea since after the first couple of months, most dogs develop a lactose intolerance. I thought I had posted this earlier but apparently the Internet Gods decided I wasn't awake enough to post.

Hahaha! That's alright. Happens to me sometimes as well... We hope to have Axe fully on Acana by the end of the month. Will it matter if we alternate between flavors of Acana?
