Hello all - we have two labs (brother and sister) who just turned 2 last week.
Since we have had them, they have had digestion problems - lots of gas, loose stools (unless we intervene) and the girl has consistent problems with upset stomach.
They eat California Natural (Rice and Chicken formula) twice a day (we thought breaking up the food into two smaller meals would help) We have tried other foods, but with worse gas problems than this - this is the easiest on their systems.
We add bone meal (1/4 tsp to night feeding only) and Linatone Plus (vitamins) - we did try raw bones, but they could not handle it and ended up with severe diarhea and bone chips in their guts to the point of vet visits to try to help them. Bone seemed to help firm up the stools, though, so we started adding the ground bone meal to dinners.
We have tried to take away the bone with the stools loosening up (in the past) - we have not tried it in a few months.,
We are wondering if now that they are two, they might not need the calcium so much and are wondering if raw pumpkin might not be an ok substitute.
Does anyone have any information, ideas, or feedback?
