Default Canned food=diarrhea

Now I expected this when I started giving the poochies canned food, but how long is it going to last for???

Poor Roxy hasn't had a solid poop in 2 days, and instead of pooping once or maybe twice a day it's been more like 3 or 4!

Does the canned just have too much moisture for her?

Do I just hold out, and hope she firms up?

Should I give her something to firm her up?

A tablespoon of canned pumpkin will help. Not the spiced pie variety, but just plain canned pumpkin.

The moisture content of a food has no bearing on the stool, since water is removed in the colon.

Could it be that you are feeding too much all at once?

I second the comment on the canned pumpkin, and also a good quality probiotic supplement. You bought Eagle Pack canned food, right?

Check out this product:

Canned pumpkin, I'll have a look for it..

I don't think the pet store I got the food from has that product you mentioned Mordy but I'm going to call them tomorrow and ask.

She hasn't been getting that much. Maybe a can, a can and a half day. No more than that.

The night I got the food they each got half a can for dinner.

The next day, half a can for breakfast. (Roxy got her pills)

And that night they got a can each for dinner.

Today they got half a can this morning, but i'm not giving them anymore tonight.
