Well long story short, we adopted a male boxer puppy the last week of January. He RARELY has a solid stool, rarely even any evidence of it being slightly formed. Since he was a stray we dont know his age exactly (6-9 months) according to the vet and he only weighs 36 lbs +/-. He has been checked and re-checked for any kind of paracites or worms. We've ruled out egg, grain, chicken, and lamb allergies. We were treating for colitis but the vet thinks thats not it either. He has been on Eukenuba Puppy Formula, Chicken Soup, 2 sensitive stomach formulas, a grain free formula, a herring formula, and canned Hills Canine I/d from the vet. Go figure the last is the only food that has produced formed, reasonably solid stools. Also, I know that is a lot of formulas to have tried but we followed the vets advice and also used probiotics to help ease the transistions. We did also discover that he can take about a 45/55 mix of one dry formula (45) and the Hills I/d (55). Basically the vet has told us that he just has an ultra sensitive stomach and needs a very bland diet while also getting nutrients to get the weight up. Here is my delemma. I love dogs, I have another boxer who we love, we tried to do the right thing with adoption instead of getting a puppy and here we are. The way the costs add up for the food will total around $130+ / month. $1500 per year for dog food alone is not an acceptable number to me. I am looking for ANY advice on a dog formula that you have tried for experiences like this, anything we could add to a food to tone it down and make it bland enough (just rice hasnt worked), basically anything. Thank you all in advance and sorry for being long winded about this.
