    Hi there. I'd just like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and to say a big thank you to everyone for all of your help and advice over the year. I think we're finally getting somewhere with Lilly. We've have the odd episode but we've managed it with Logic Firm and not needed to use antibolics, which I'm sure is helping her tummy. I wish you and your dogs good health and happiness in 2018! x

    +1 for raw feeding. My boy had a sensitive stomach and countless allergies and raw solved it all! No exaggeration! I use Nutriment complete. I tried nature's menu but many of theres still have rice in which didn't suit him!

    We feed our Whippet and Puppy Longdogs on a complete raw diet, bought frozen. You thaw out and feed. our dogs are doing really well. No more runny poo and definitely less flatulence.

    Sorry to hear about LillyBlue's problems. Our 6 mth whippet Misty has been on a raw diet for a month and seems to love it but although normal poos in the morning and evening she often has diarrhoea in the afternoon and lately has frequent and very smelly wind. Perhaps giving her too much or she might be scavenging on walks inc dog poo. Never thought poo would occupy my thoughts to such an extent!

    Oh, welcome to dog forum life. Poo is one of our foundation subjects I'm afraid ...

    Quite frequently it's simply a combination of excitement and exercise sending digested food through the gut faster, and expelling it before the large intestine has had enough time to absorb the liquid part. Just one of those things!

    My girl, when I took her to racing, when we arrive I take her for a walk round the field often she poo's and if she does its a normal well formed poo. Then she goes racing, occasionally after I pick her up at the end and walk her back she poo's, and then its always very sloppy. I do not know if its the exercise or the adrenaline that causes the change but it's the only time they are so soft. And talking to other owners they are all the same if they poo after a run its soft.
