He poos perfectly first...

He poos perfectly first thing and two or three times in the morning then it becomes soft and the last poo of the day (around midday) is liquid

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Cocker spaniel 9 months old. Now on grain free kibble. No treats other than a marrow bone in the evening

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. This might be a case where increasing fiber in his diet can solve this issue and firm up the stool to where it is not liquid by the last poop of the day. I would recommend mixing 1 capsule of Metamucil in with the food with some water in the morning. This is a fiber supplement that can help to firm up the stool. I would try that for a week and see if that helps with the stool.

Is there a charge to ask questions? What could be the final
She is a 10 year old Cavachon, had bladder stones when she was 2. Put on grain free dog kibble and canned food to coincide with food. It was rabbit and she liked it. No longer available. We switched to something else I don't remember, but it was probably i/d from vet. Then July 2016 she had diarrhea for 3 months. I boiled chicked and rice and vet finally decided it was the i/d kibble so changed it to a different i/d kibble. She also gets 1 dental bone a day for teeth and the Milk Bone little hot dog treats which seem to add to the diarrhea so I've cut down to 1-2 a day. Well, I diarrhea is back, she got meds for 5 days and it was better, but stool soft, no longer firmer. Then diarrhea was back so I brought stool sample to vet and next day they said there was nothing. Very next day there was blood in stool but not throughout, more on the sides and sort of mucous. Friend is an ER nurse, and she said it was probably intestinal or colon irritation. I was leaving for 6 days in Florida the next day. Dog sitter gave her chicken and rice for 3 days and then added small amount of kibble. I truly believe the kibble is the problem but don't know which one to select. Sweet potato in a lot and that would also make her stool loose. What would you all suggest. Thank you. … read more
