So far, her poos have been very soft and happening to almost 9 times a day or so. Im a wee bit worried about this, however my husband isnt as the shelter people have told us that the change might be causing the soft poo. But surely it shouldnt be that soft?
I know we arent feeding her the best food, she is on Pedigree at the moment as thats what she has been fed at the shelter and we've been told to start her slowly on better food, with higher meat content.
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated! Im thinking if this continues, i am taking her to the vet! She probably could do with a check up.
Thank you so much!!
How long has she been with you? Stress, parasites and food quality can affect their poo. It's a good idea to get a check up and build a relationship with your new vet if you haven't already done it.
