No, it really hasn't gotten any better with meds. The vet is probably going to give me a prescription for metronidazole (antibiotic). She believes that will harden the stool. However, my concern is what will happen when she's done with the meds. Will it go back to being soft again? I don't want a temporary fix.
I've switched her food. The breeder said she fed them Purina Pro Plan. The vet put her on a prescription Hill's Science Diet canned food to try and keep it bland. That hardened up only a tiny bit. I was then feeding her Redford Naturals (Pet Supplies Plus brand manufactured by some unknown leading manufacturer). But the kibble was so small (like the size of BB pellets). And she didn't show improvement with it. So I've put her on Hill's Science Diet (non-prescription) large breed puppy. Again, not hardening yet. She's been on it for 2 weeks now.
I'm considering putting her on Eukanuba. I get mixed reviews on the quality of it, but I used it with my old golden and didn't have issues. Seems like I can always find pros and cons on every food out there when I search the web.
