Since putting my dogs on California Natural their stools are smaller and they are having some issues with leaky scent glands, they release (just enough to smell) and it is happening often. I give them baby carrots as treats (2-4 a day) and I am wondering if there is something else I can give to bulk up their stools..
Thanks, Michelle

Pureed pumpkin (no additives) should do the trick. I wonder why you're sticking with a food that's causing hind-end nastiness.

My female has always had a problem with her scent glands and my male used to release when he was frightened and now they just leak a little. I am giving this food a chance because it is the first food (of the dog variety) my female has been excited to eat and I have yet to find a food I don't end up supplementing.

The various Eukanuba formulas produce the nicest quality poops of any food I've tried. There's obviously a lot more to consider when choosing a food and I don't think stool quality is the top priority (although there are days when I do think that while picking up in the yard), but it may be a consideration if you've got a dog for which that's a particular problem.

I haven't tried any of the Eukanuba, maybe I'll have to give that a shot. Penny is a very picky eater and she has a sensitive tummy so there are other reasons for this food. Buddy has never met a food (or anything that will fit in his mouth) that he didn't like. I'll have to do some elimination and see if the problem is just the food.

Metamucil wafers are also effective

My dog has been on Eukaneuba since puppiehood and thrives on it. The few times we have used other food (run out of Eukaneuba and had to but something at the grocery) his poops get much larger. Eukaneuba produces a smaller, but very firm stool. Loved your pun in closing, about doing some elimination to research the problem.

Perhaps he should be forced to cash it in and donate the money to pay for the war in Iraq. Never gonna happen, but dreaming of more justice makes me feel better.
