Tummy trou­ble

Sporting Shooter - - Gundog Experts -


My 14-month-old Lab is suf­fer­ing from soft stools. Some­times it is okay, then oth­ers it is soft or quite wet, and yel­low in colour. I am not sure whether to change her food or not.


VICKY PAYNE replies: In­ter­mit­tent soft stools can be seen with in­fec­tions in­clud­ing gi­a­r­dia and campy­lobac­ter. I rec­om­mend ask­ing your vet to have a three-day pooled fae­cal sam­ple (a bit of stool from three con­sec­u­tive days) an­a­lysed.

If this comes back as nor­mal, I would sug­gest you look for a highly di­gestible food (high meat con­tent) and add a pro­bi­otic sup­ple­ment. I like Pet Plus which also con­tains di­ges­tive en­zymes and an­tiox­i­dants.
