Hello! About three weeks ago, I adopted a boxer/hound at the local shelter. He is a dream come true-- sweet, laid-back, loves kids, people, I could go on and on... but his stools are a mess. I started him out on Wellness Super5 (chicken), 1 cup with 1/4 cup canned (95% chicken and broth), twice a day. He eats like it is his last meal, devouring his food in less than 90 seconds. In an effort to make this story shorter, his stools started getting even looser so I started fiddling with his food (I know, I know. I need to tatoo 'idiot' on my forehead.) and the stools and urgency to go really escalated. So, for the past 4 days, he has been eating boiled chicken (boneless breast, plain) and white rice, approx 1 cup rice and 1/3-1/2 chicken, twice a day. Thanks to DaneMama's poop chart, before switching to the rice and chicken, stools fell into the 0-25 range and occurred 4 times day. Now they fall within the 50-75 range, once a day. Took him to the vet and he has double ear infections, clean stool but put him on dewormer to be safe. Vet initially recommended puppy food but thought it might be too rich so suggested Purina or Science Diet but also said I could continue with the Wellness. (He's very thin, 50lb, visible rib and hip bones, and needs to gain weight.) It's time to start introducing dog food again but I'm afraid his system is still sensitive and don't want to cause him more distress. I currently have a bag Wellness Super5 (chicken), Orijen (chicken) and Natural Balance (fish and sweet potato). I'm not opposed to following the vet's recommendation and get Purina if it would help to stabilize him. I'm just not sure what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
