We rescued a 1.5 year old basset 2 weeks ago. They fed him canidae which we continue to feed (mixture of wet and dry). His stool keeps fluctuating between solid and mushy. I heard pumpkin helps but doesn’t seem to be working. We know the water is different for him but thought he would adjust by now. Could he be unsettled due to the change? Any suggestions? Thank you!

Has he been checked for internal parasites with fecal exams?
Any big environmental change can cause bowel troubles in susceptible individuals. It is also possible that this is has been a long-standing problem. Regardless, a diet upgrade, probiotics, l-glutamine, etc. may all be indicated.

It is also extremely important to start homeopathic treatment at the same time (or even before adding any nutritional supplements). This will reduce and hopefully eliminate the underlying disturbance which has resulted in the problem (which can only be palliated with diet and supplements).
