Soupy poop?? gross sorry!!

Indy has been on Wellness Chicken super 5 mix for 3 months now, since we adopted her.
The first 3 weeks we got her her poops were a nightmare she was going 5+ times a day & they were all soupy,runny.
Now she has 2 nice solid poops a day, but the last poop after her evening meal is solid with a topping of soupy poop errrrrgh gross told you so.

I was wondering why her last poop is soupy???
Do you think I should change her food?? I know some of you like Canidae,Innova.

Have you had a fecal test done? It could be some type of parasite.

Don't have any experience with "end of day" looseness. I occasionally (but not all the time) notice if Brooks has been doing A LOT of running (off leash in the woods) he will go several times during that run and the last one will sometimes be more loose....so I thought it was just "runners diarrhea".

The only other time we had "melted ice cream" poop was back when he had whipworms. It took several fecal tests to identify as the whipworms only shed eggs (or whatever is detected in the fecal test) every 3 days or so.

My next question then would be, what else does she get to eat during the day other than dog food?

Do you have kids? Do they give her scraps?

If not, I wouldn't be thrilled with the stools, I'd probably think about switching.

She only gets Kirkland chicken or lamb dog biscuits & we sometimes give her a couple of baby carrots raw. We dont give her anything else as the vet said she probably has a sensitive stomache due to her previous vomiting & loose stools.
What brand of food do you recommend??
I was wondering if she is sensitive to chicken?? Wellness also has fruits & grains in it.

You know, your dog's stools and vomiting sound similar to what I was dealing with when Shamus was on Solid Gold. I believe, and our vet concurs, that Shamus has some protein allergies (most people don't realize that more dogs are allergic to proteins than they are to grains, corn, etc.).

Anyway, I'd recommend getting her away from the chicken and putting her on a single carb single protein food. I have looked at Timberwolf Organics many times but there are so many ingredients in it that Shamus could have a problem with. It's the same reason I have stayed away from other good food such as Eagle Pack.

PM me if you ever want to talk dog food. More than willing to do so...
