I would also suggest the Canidae food. It resolved some poopy issues with my Golden Retriever. It's also great for the skin and coat!

You also forgot to "bold" the chicken by product meal. Yes its chicken but what parts of the chicken.

It then says chicken but it is already 7th in the ingredients list and it *should* be chicken meal.

For instance:

1 lb of chicken=1/4 lb of chicken once it has been dried out and added
1 lb of chicken meal=1 lb of chicken meal in the food.

We had Kovi on Cal Natural for a while and she had the same problem. I would make two suggestions . . . first, look at the Cal Natural formula, was it chicken or lamb? Kovi didn't do well on the lamb, but when I switched her to chicken based foods, she did great. Also, because of the loose stools I switched her to Nutro (which I thought was an ok food, but found out it wasn't) and then to Nature's Variety Chicken and Rice and have had no problems.
