My dog visits the vet quite often, at least 6 times a month. This is because we are working on his allergies. In the middle of this I kinda overlooked his poop. It now calls my attention because it is always yellow and too soft. This was not a problem at first but now it is an every day thing.
My dog eats hypoallergenic dog food mixed with rice. Rice alone is not enough for him, and always goes looking for more food as if I hadn't fed him in days.
Till about two weeks ago he would eat pork with the rice instead of dog food, but the stool was not very different other than a bit harder. It would also give him a horrible breath, and make him stink really bad. I decided to opt out because of that and the inconvenience of constantly having to bake pork (also it is hard to find fresh pork meat where I live). Another side effect from the pork was that my dog started wanting to eat more, and so started taking food from my plate, which he never did before.
Before this he ate diet dog food. This was regular beef based food (which is sometimes not recommended because it has soybean in it). The diet part was to give him less fat, which seemed to upset his stomach.
And obviously at first he ate regular food, and was ok with it for about two years.
His treatment on allergies was mainly on his skin. For some time he took anti allergy pills but it did not help much. Lately he started taking meds for thyroid treatment. This has bettered his skin but not his stomach.
So there you go. He is eating hypoallergenic now with tons of rice and still having a yellow soft poop. From what I read it might be the pancreas? not gonna lie, I'm scared to death that it might be something like the liver and that he'd need a transplant.
