Just going through something similar with my foster Ratty, he has had awful poo's since he arrived & the farts were lethal, I have never smelt anything like it When I took him to the vet people had to leave the waiting room because of the stench
He has been on a week's course of antibiotics (Metronidazole) & then a few days of probiotic paste to see if he had a bug but unfortunately his poo's are still an exploding mess.
I have tried him on Barking Heads 'fusspot' which is salmon & potato, just finished with Barking Heads 'sensitive' which is chicken & rice, now about to start on Burns chicken & brown rice
The poo quantity & farting have decreased dramatically thankfully but the consistency is still way too loose, so not sure what else to try if Burns is no good
Wanda you could try fish4dogs. It's the only food Sapphy is ok on and only one of couple that suits Gracie too.
If you buy a 1.5k bag off their web site they'll refund if it's no good, you fill in a web form and send the empty bag back I believe. The bigger bags can always be found much cheaper from various web sites if you google it. Just be careful not to overfeed it.
Sapphy produced pools of liquid chocolate for 6 mths until I tried fish4dogs (white fish not salmon) She'd had metronidazole and the paste and a poo sample sent to the lab but it came back clear.
Many ex-kennel dogs are not used to 'quality' food and their digestive systems just don't seem to cope. I know we like to think we are giving them the best we can afford but sometimes the cheap 'rubbish' seems to suit them far better and the kennel dogs fed on cheap kibble rarely have any 'butt' problems.
Hi all. We rescued a 3 yr lurcher 4 weeks ago. He has various stages of the runs. First one solid but soft and the following 2/3 get runnier. Tried chicken and rice. Didnt make much difference. He is on Dr Johns titanium and half a tin of meat in jelly. I have tried small amounts of rice with this. Firmed up first poo a bit, but still ends up runny!! Not in a position to spend a fortune on different food every few weeks. Any advice would be great. He is very active and bouncy. So happy just runny

missfleur2003: Hello. I am new to this site and noticed that the posts for available dogs seem to be quite old. Some seem to be years old. Are the dogs shown still available.

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

steeveet: Hi there, just had our home inspection by a lovely lady with her Greyhound Arthur, who I could have happily snaffled as he was sweet and at home with our girl Belle. Does anyone here know how we now get to meet any of the dogs who need a home?

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
