Default puppy food

Right now I'm feeding my puppy halo dog food, the chicken formula. Since we've gotten Kayla her poop hasnt been solid and I dont know why. Is it because we changed her food or are we feeding her something that doesnt agree with her. Any suggestions?

Sometimes a food switch can cause loose stools - I would give it a few more days. You can try adding some canned pumpkin into her food to help firm up her stools.

If the Halo doesn't work out eventually, and you're looking to switch...a few of my favorite puppy-specific foods are Canine Caviar, Nature's Variety Prairie, and Orijen.

Whenever a new food is introduced, it needs to be done slowly so the dog doesn't get the runs. I would say try it a little longer and see if things improve. The canned "plain" pumpkin is also a good idea for a little bit to help regulate.
