You can also try a small amount of the pink pepto-bismol. I have bred for years, and use it 1st, if it doesn't help, then try everything else. I always keep a bottle on hand. It can be mixed with wet food, (which I don't recommend while there is loose bowels, unless they won't eat dry).

With dry food just mix a small spoon of it in a little water & mix dry in it. Usually works great. Sometimes it has to be given every meal for a couple of days. You should definitely take your baby to the Vet & have her completely checked out. For both of your benefits. May save you a lot of time & trouble & expense in the future. Good Luck. Enjoy your baby, they grow up so fast!

I would try a mixture of ground meat and rice. I had a sheltie that would get that once in awhile and that's what we gave her. But don't give it continually, it could bind her so as soon as you see improvement stop.

She should only have been weaned a short while ago. Her system needs some time to adjust. Unless she has diarhea give her a little time. A little rice is a good idea, too.

I've had my sweet greyhound for a month. She has always had a mushy stool. She goes once maybe twice a day and get plenty of water. She seems happy and playful. Should I be concerned?

Try adding about 1/4 cup of pumpkin to her food. I adopted a boxer that was filled with worms. It did some serious damage to her intestines. Whenever her stools seem runny or too soft, I add a little pumpkin and she's usually fine in a day or two. Use the canned stuff, not the pumpkin pie mix, just the plain pureed stuff. Did you have her tested for worms? If not I would do that too. But definitely do the pumpkin regardless. (06/27/2006)

It could be her nerves. I have owned 3 Greyhounds and they do not take to change very well. It also might be that she is getting use to a new diet, since I'm sure your feeding her differently than the race track did. If this continues for to much longer I would notify your vet. (06/27/2006)

You could add rice, wheat bran or even banana to her diet to help bind her stools a bit.

I have fostered 18 Greyhounds and many of them come to me with loose stools. I found that when I switched them over to Purina Healthy Morsels for Seniors it helps. I also add 1 TBL of vanilla yogurt to their food.

I also have a wonderful greyhound. From time to time I've had the same problem with other dogs and many of the suggestions people are offering did the trick. But take my word for it, greys are different! I had the same problem with Gabby as you're having. They have the most sensitive stomachs of any breed I know. I work with dogs constantly, so I've seen it all. Forget the pumpkin, rice, yogurt, etc. I was getting so aggravated. "Poo Patrol" was a nightmare!
Anyway, know what stopped it in a matter of 1 day? CANIDAE dog food. I'm talking almost immediately. There are only 2 types, "All Life Stages" (my choice)and "Lamb & Rice". At the time, I also had a 14-1/2 year old Dalmatian with the same problem as Gabby. Even with his age, it's still helped to firm it up. Unfortunately, he has crossed the Rainbow Bridge just a couple of weeks ago.


If you read this, please just buy a small bag of Canidae (that's what I did) and try it. I would love to know if it helps. (08/26/2008)
