Hi I'm new to posting here, this site has been very helpful over the last few months. My name is Emma and I have a beautiful 5 month old golden retriever. Unfortunately we are having some poop issues (sorry in advance for the grossness) he has had a couple of hours of terrible diarrhoea had a sample sent away and found no parasites or infection. We have changed his food to a recommended option and cut out all treats and Dental stick as per the vet recommendation. And feed bland food (chicken rice potato etc)
He seemed to get better and have solid ones for a few days but now we are back to the soft ones again. Main issue is that he is fine all day full of energy and happy. When it comes to the night he has us up every 2 hours to go poop. As you can imagine this is exhausting, thought we were through all the getting up in the night as he had started to sleep through 10:30-7am no problem. Would love to hear off to any one experiencing/have experienced anything similar, or any advice i just want the best for him and want him to be well
Thanks
Emma and Jaxson

On the bright side at least all tests came back that it is nothing serious, but I can definitely understand how frustrating it could be. What food is he eating?

Some dogs don't do well with chicken. I would say try boiling hamburger to get the fat out with rice and pumpkin. If that doesn't work i'm not sure what to tell you. Yes cut out any extra food/treats he would get besides that. You want him on a bland diet. Not sure what you feed him? I would recommend ANP Sensitive stomach or ANP (American Natural Premium) Ocean fish and Potato. Or TOW (Taste of the Wild) Pacific stream. Most dogs do well on fish and grain free.

I hope this helps :)

Hi thanks for all your replays he was on beta puppy, have changed to iams with some chappie mixed in as recommended has helped a little was only Up once last night!! ?
Maybe will stop the chicken see if that helps he usually only has that a couple of times a week.
Have bought some specialist hypo allergenic food if the current change doesn't work......
Poor puppy can't even have his dental sticks ?
Do you think it could be because of him teething that it's worse? I've heard this can play a par?

dentastix are full of garbage by products, fillers so not good anyway. Iams isnt a good food but see how he goes on it as you dont want to change alot right now. Though you will need a single protien and possibly low fat food for him/her.

Chicken is a very common allergen so id be taking him off chicken dry food as well. Most foods contain either chicken or chicken fat this is where ingredient label reading truly comes in.
You dont want any:

  1. colorants
  2. corn
  3. wheat
  4. by products
  5. animal digest
  6. animal fat unnamed thats to guide you on right track.
High quality foods are fromm, acana, addiction, nutrience natural, and others can help there. Other good quality is 4health from tractor supply. heres a good link Best Dog Food Reviews and Ratings of 2015 - Reviews.com
