Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian. I'm sorry to hear that Dingy is having difficulty with his stools. I would recommend adding canned pumpkin puree to his dog food to see if this helps loosen his stools. The pumpkin puree adds fiber to the diet. Make sure it is NOT pumpkin pie mix as this has too much sugar and will make him sick. If he is a small dog you can add 1 teaspoon to each meal. If he is medium to large size dog you can add 1 tablespoon to each meal.
If the pumpkin puree does not help, then you can try an over the counter stool softener called Miralax. You can start with 1/4 teaspoon Miralax to food every 12 hours.

If neither of these help, then he needs to be taken to a vet for a physical exam and possible an x-ray.
