Default Soft stools

Dobby tends to have really soft stools in the afternoon. Do you think it's the food or the stress of being left alone for a few hours a day? Right now I'm feeding her Nutro Max Puppy.

Could be either one or both. Or also the amount of water Dobby is drinking. Are these really soft stools as in runny, or just loose?

Just soft. Like when I pick it up there's still a little bit left behind. For the rest of the day her stools are usually fine.

How much water should I be feeding her?

If she is used to this food and no recent changes it could be just stress. Give her 1 tbsp of canned UNSPICED pumpkin and this usually clears it up and dogs love it!!! It is good for digestion and stools. Also, honey I give mine once or twice a week it is a great cleanser of the system and a good heart tonic.!! Just normal things like this helps make our dogs much better and happier. Be sure and play a radio for her and burn a small night light if the room is somewhat darker during the winter months. If you need anything more, just pm me or email me anytime I am here always. Enjoy and The Best .......Make sure she is worm free also. If your in doubt take in a stool sample in a baggie to be checked, it could be that for a good reason , if not just do the above.

You might be overfeeding her just a little.
