We have adopted a 10-month old Anatolian shepherd mix. She was formerly a stray born sometime around the recent hurricane. We have had her for four months with relatively no issues.

In the past month or so, she's developed a serious intolerance to something in her diet. We try to be as strict as possible with her intake, feeding her naturally formulated puppy food with virtually no exposure to human food.

Is it possible that she has developed an intolerance to her puppy food (Fromm's Gold Puppy). Her "soupy poop" has required 3-5 wake-up calls every night for the past few weeks.

Thanks so much for your help!

Poor Poopy Puppy

I have had my share of 'poopy' dogs over the years. I owned and operated a dog hotel for over 23 years too and had to clean up after and treat many dogs with diahrea. It's not pleasant for sure. Number one, deworming should be done first. Fenbendazole is a good all around de wormer. Your vet may have another good choice. Your dog may also have a bacterial infection causing the diahrea. So therefore, I suggest you get a sample of your dog's diahrea to your Vet, have it tested for an infection and get the dewormer. Not all worm infestations show up in that test, so i would deworm anyway. Put your dog on a rice and canned pumpkin diet until his 'runs' stop. I would also add some chicken to this, to make it tastier for the dog. Do not put him on his dogfood until his poopy problem stops! Giving regular dog food will aggravate his condition at this point. As to the rice mix, cook up a large batch, a full rice cooker worth, then take one regular sized can of cooked pumpkin, mix it in well. Add some shredded up chicken, maybe even some organic chicken broth. If your dog still has a good appetite, he will gobble this down. I would feed 3x per day until his poopy flow stops. Good luck :)
