Stool firmer

Hi. Looking for something I can use long term to firm up my dogs stools. We have been using protexin pro fibre for a little while, as advise by our vet nurse, but stools are formed but soft. Please can you help. Thanks. Jayne

It sounds like your dog is on a diet which does not quite suit it. The majority of dogs such as yours will in fact respond perfectly if they are on an appropriate diet. You woulod need to experiment a bit to find out what is needed, but I would definitely try this before opting for long-term supplements to try and achieve the effect you want. Many dogs do not cope perfectly with some of the ingredients which are used in lots of dog foods. (Wheat, rice, beef, milk commonly a problem.) Ideally you should try your dog on a very restricted diet for 2 weeks, using ingredients which are not found in your dogs normal food. A diet like Barking Heads Fusspot dog food, which is based on salmon and potato, often works very well. You cannot allow any tit-bits or other foods/drinks for 2 weeks, just this food and water. If that sorts it out (it will for most dogs) then you can try adding other foods as you wish and see what is OK and what is best avoided.

Pro-biotics do work for some dogs and Mark & Chappell Stool Firm-UM is a good example. They are very safe and will not cause any trouble, but on the right diet, should not be needed long-term.
