Customer Question

I had my dogs on Blue Buffalo Grain Free dog food however my one dog wasn't moving her bowels on a regular basis seems she wasn't getting enough fiber causing her not to poop and issues with her annual glands my other dog was fine however on recommendation
from my vet I changed their food to something that would have more fiber I switched them to Natural Balance chicken and sweet potato now they are going too much and having accidents in the house even though this particular dog food I choose is supposed to
be grain free. I need a recommendation of good quality dog food that has a good balance of fiber etc. that will lead them to have normal bowel movements.

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...

Was the only problem the fact that one was having constipation issues on the Blue Buffalo?

my one dog was fine on the no grain but the other was constipated
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

If the only problem was that one dog was a little constipated, if it were me, I'd switch back to Blue Buffalo and add a little plain canned pumpkin (just plain pumpkin, NOT pumpkin pie filling). The pumpkin is full of fiber, which is a natural remedy for constipation.

I hope this helps.
