I know it sounds crazy to some but when Rose had soft stools I gave her half a banana in the morning. That seemed to do the trick for her. Now it is almost a ritual. After our morning outing we come inside and split a banana. With dinner she gets a quarter of an apple.

i had the same issue with fromm. but i was switching from pro plan to fromm. i was switching for almost 2 weeks and his stools were really soft. i ended up switching back to pro plan and stools are normal again. fromm may be too rich for your puppy, try transiting slowly and if it doesnt work you may have to switch back until your pup gets a bit older.

Maddie is still super young. If you think it would be easier to house train with firm stools () I'd switch back to Eukanuba until she is a little older and try the switch again. I fed Fromm LB Adult and my boys loved it but I switched to Earthborn bc I just couldn't keep weight on them.

I'm thinking about switching Rusty to Earthborn once he is older. How has the food been for your dogs?

I started mixing back in the Eukanuba with Fromm, she eats the Fromm and leaves the Eukanuba lol. So I picked up a bag of PP sensitive stomach and skin. Hopefully my picky puppy likes it and her stools won't be so soft.

Try adding some canned pumpkin into the food. The pumpkin is organic and pumpkin is the only ingredient. Be sure to get this and not the pumpkin pie kind. It will help adding some into the food.

Thanks! I switched to pro plan sensitive stomach and skin and now her stool is normal. She loves it too! I thought she loved the Fromm until I saw her eat PP SS lol. So for now this looks like it will be her food!!

That is great that you have found a food that works for you and your puppy.
