    So we've noticed that Ninja and Portia's poop has been liquid the past few days.  It seems ever since it starting raining down here their poop got more liquid like.  I haven't changed their diet at all, I stopped mixing their Orijen kibble with Canned a few weeks ago.  I really don't know why its so liquidy.  Any ideas?

    You might try them on a bland diet like chicken or cottage cheese and rice for a few days and see if that doesn't help. If that doesn't calm things down you might have them checked for internal parasites

    Pumpkin, canned is fine, but not the pie filling real canned pumpkin. It will help form their poop.

  • Have they been licking puddles at all? If so, it could be giardia. That can lead to watery stool in a short amount of time.



    I wouldn't jump to conclusions yet though. Make sure they have plenty of water so they don't get dehydrated and give them bland food for a day or two. The pumpkin is also a great idea for the fiber.

    I don't think they have been licking puddles...It hasn't rained hard or anything, mostly just scattered showers.  I will definately try the pumpkin and bland food.  Thanks for the suggestions guys :)
  • They LOVE pumpkin too.
  • plain yogurt is good too.

    So yesterday I bought chicken breasts, plain yogurt, and pumpkin.  I tried giving them a little bit of the pumpkin and yogurt to see if they liked it.  Portia LOVES the yogurt and likes the pumpkin too, but she chooses yogurt over pumpkin.  Ninja seems to like both equally.  So I boiled the chicken breast and gave it to them and gave them a little bit of yogurt and pumpkin with it.  They loved it!  This morning they both took a poopie and it was orange! lol, but it was firm and had shape so thats a good sign!  Also, I haven't smelled a fart since!  I AM SO HAPPY!  Thanks guys!
