    Now I expected this when I started giving the poochies canned food, but how long is it going to last for???

    Poor Roxy hasn't had a solid poop in 2 days, and instead of pooping once or maybe twice a day it's been more like 3 or 4!

    Does the canned just have too much moisture for her?

    Do I just hold out, and hope she firms up?

    Should I give her something to firm her up?

    A tablespoon of canned pumpkin will help. Not the spiced pie variety, but just plain canned pumpkin.

    The moisture content of a food has no bearing on the stool, since water is removed in the colon.

    Could it be that you are feeding too much all at once?

    I second the comment on the canned pumpkin, and also a good quality probiotic supplement. You bought Eagle Pack canned food, right?

    Canned pumpkin, I'll have a look for it..

    I don't think the pet store I got the food from has that product you mentioned Mordy but I'm going to call them tomorrow and ask.

    She hasn't been getting that much. Maybe a can, a can and a half day. No more than that.

    The night I got the food they each got half a can for dinner.

    The next day, half a can for breakfast. (Roxy got her pills)

    And that night they got a can each for dinner.

    Today they got half a can this morning, but i'm not giving them anymore tonight.
