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.

PostSubject: Soft stool   Soft stool EmptyWed Mar 13, 2013 12:33 pm

I've been feeding Maya, my husky, blue buffalo wilderness puppy for about a month now. Before that she was on BB freedom. I can't remember if her stool was firm on the freedom or not but now she is having soft stool on the wilderness.

My question is is it the higher protein cause the soft stool or is it something else in the food?

Thank you

How old is your pup and what is her weight? How much are you feeding her? Oftentimes soft stool can come from overfeeding!

Since you started feeding BB Wilderness Puppy, did she ever have normal stool consistency? Or has it just recently started? When you switched her from Freedeom to Wilderness Puppy, how long did you take to make the transition? How old is she and how much are you currently feeding her?

Soft stools can be caused by a couple of different things - changing food too fast, ingredient(s) in the new food that doesn't sit well in her tummy, and even over feeding.

Can you give us a little more info?

She is almost 4 months old (will be four months on the 26th) and she weighs 26.1 pounds. I feed her 2 times a day with a total of 2 1/2 cups of food. I can't remember but I'm pretty sure she had regular stool on the freedom. When I went from the purina pro plan to freedom I pretty much did it cold turkey with no problems. So when I went to the wilderness I just mixed it all together.

She went to the vet yesterday and she has a parasite that my vet said is what's causing the soft stool. She is on medicine to get rid of the parasite and he said if the stool doesn't get better then it may be the diet.

My girl is 4 months as well and I recently had her on BBW puppy and it started giving her soft stool and really awful gas so I ended up changed her food especially with all the crap going on with BB and all the complaints. Since I have changed her to Wellness Core puppy which is also grain free, her stools are already starting to get back to normal!
