    We have a 7 year old lab who is still very active. He's a domestic dog. He has been fed for many years on Arden Grange, Lamb & Rice (dry food). However over the past 18 months when we have walked him his first poo has been firm, but subsequent ones lose shape and the third/fourth poo is runny.
    Recently we swapped him onto John Burns, salmon & rice, which initially made a difference. However the same pattern has returned again.

    Has anyone else experienced this and uses a food that solves the issue?

    I use pro fibre for my dog. He has colitis and it helps keep his poos firm. The fibre skies his digestive system down and really works for him. I presume you worm regularly as parasites can sometimes be a problem.

    Raw food works well for us and you can control content (bone/offal) to suit your dog. Send a sample off for a worm count if you're concerned about parasites - don't just treat blindly.

    I second the raw diet. Drinks less water, poops are smaller and firm. Been on it for 3 years now.
