Any one else have a dog that cleans up all the chicken poo? It hasn't seem to hurt her at all short term anyway. Anyone know of any long term effects?
I dropped the purina food that was changed immediately after realizing that it was probably the new version. Once I laid an old bag that I had re-used for recycling next to the new bag I could see the slight difference in the "new and improved formula". I went to three grocery stores and found three bags of the "old" version and have been using the old stuff to wean them onto something new. I dumped the bad new stuff out in the woods for the racoons and bears.Coccidia will cause animals to crave calcium. Not a well known fact but true none the less. So, I would run a dog poo sample to your vet just to be sure. I understand that you're talking about protein and I'm talking about calcium. I also understand that Purina's "changes" may have triggered something. Could also be salmonella or aflatoxin in the fog food. These are commonly found in dog foods and result in recalls. Sometimes they are there and no recalls. Anyhow, consider your dogs symptoms as an alert that all these things need to be ruled out. Kaopectate 3X a day works wonders for dogs with loose stool BTW.
