Well I gave her some acidophilous with her breakfast this morning (then we went to sleep for an hour and a half) and her poop wasnt liquidy...it was mushy...so that's an improvement

Aw, poor Nutter Butter. :(  As long as she's active, bright-eyed, and eating well I wouldn't freak out about it (and I tend to freak out at the drop of a hat ;) ) but certainly you want to get it under control.  The probiotics should help, and can't hurt! :)

(NV raw patties are expensive anyway but $30-50 is outrageous!)

She is rediculously active and is a piglet.  She'll clean her bowl...then go sniff where Beas' bowl was to make sure he didnt drop anything.  I did leave a bit early to hit the store so that I have some canned pumpkin...so in addition to the probiotics she will be getting some of that tonight.

I called the local pet store and they sell Nature's Variety Raw and for a 6 lb bag...it's $30-$50 a bag.

Considering she'll probably go through about 2 of those a week once she gets a bit bigger and as an adult....that will REALLY add up.   :eek:

Wow, that sucks.  For what it's worth, though, I'm sure she'll adjust to the kibble eventually.  If she doesn't adjust well to the Canidae, have you figured out another kibble you might try?

I do RAW most of the time but occasionally use Taste Of The Wild when traveling (both with the dogs and without as it is easier on the house/puppy sitter). It is the one kibble that I have found that I can just use once in awhile without any tummy issues at all!!! I always add a probiotic or organic plain yogurt though just to be on the safe side.

Hope things get better soon!!  :fingerscrossed:

Thanks for the advice everyone....since I got home yesterday (and fed her rice, pumpkin and probiotics) we've had 3 mushy poops which is an improvement from liquid poops.  Here's hoping things clear up sooner rather then later.
