Thanks Chloe, good to know!

So we gave him very small portion of dinner and included some actimel (Monty loves it too!). He seemed fine and did one of the firmest poos ever after! He still seemed hungry so we gave him the remaining dinner portion after an hr.

Another firm poo before bed and his post breakfast one is also great.

I really hope we've cracked it! And I can't believe how excited I am about him doing a poo that I can actually clear up without a shovel and hose! I even woke up my hubby to tell him! Oh the simple things!!

Well done Monty thats a nice surprise for your mum on Mothers day.

Katie hopefully all is well now, just wanted to tell you I was concerned about Mischa late afternoon yesterday as she also did a real squit just before food time.

There was usual discussion what did she eat on walk, is there any toys missing [eaten], you know what I mean, anyway decided to give her half measure for dinner and hoped for best.

Pleased to say this morning all is well here also, she is back on normal rations.

Atleast you know it is not just your house that gets the odd runny tum

Griffin did two massive, soft, stinky poos this morning after his feast in the food container yesterday! Hopefully normal service will be resumed later.

Just thought I would update for those that have been kind enough to give advice...

We're about 2 and a half weeks into changing over to Millie's Wolfheart and I honestly can't believe the difference it has made. Our grass is fresh and clean with no need to get the hose out to clear those horrible smears.... We can take Monty for a walk confidently and with only bags (we used to have to take a big bottle of water too to wash pavement) and most impressively, he's been more adventurous with snacks without any runny consequences!

We did still have a few soft poos so we reduced the amount from 100g three times a day to 80-90g three times a day. With that, he's nice a firm and regular. I was a little concerned as this seemed to be so below the recommended portion for a dog his age and weight (and he's a big boy) but when we factored in the other snacks he has plus chicken wings/beef bones while we have dinner, it didn't seem so little.

Hurrah! Really feel this food has changed him so much for the better.

Thanks all for recommendations

That's brilliant news I have found it to be a great food and Cola loves it. She is now on adult portion which for her is 280g a day, at first I thought it maybe want enough but find it works out perfectly as she often has some chicken and bits as training treats
