Re: Oatmeal Fixed The Ongoing Soft Poop Problem!
LifewithLouie----Yes, just regular Quaker oats (not the quick oats, although I doubt it matters). I typically just sprinkle some in with each meal and kind of mash in with her sweet potato or canned pumpkin mixed in her kibble. Probably about 1-2 large soup spoon sized amount on the oats. We also give her Greek yogurt a few times a week for probiotics. She loves it, but only the 2% for some reason.
On an interesting note, she is at the breeder's home right now and has not had an issue with soft stool even when they ran out of sweet potatoes for her. They have not been feeding her the oats at all. The breeder gives only filtered water from the refrigerator and suggests that I try the same. If it is not that, I am going to try eliminating her treats and bringing them back in one type at a time to see if that is the cause.
