After writing about Emma's poop problem, we decided to change her diet. The past few months our dogs have been on a grain free food. Since I have taken gluten out of my diet and feel 1000% times better, I wondered if it would help my dogs. So we switched Emma to grain free food and within 3 days, she was only pooping 3 times a day. Half the amount and she is not peeing nearly as much (meaning hardly any accidents).
While our dogs have been on grain free food, I still allow them to have some treats with grain in it. Neither have shown any signs of sensitivity so I think it is fine for them. However, for Emma, given her issues, I have purchased grain free treats as well.
The other change is we are limiting her access to rope toys. We have discovered that she eats the rope and that upsets her stomach.
We will see if these changes continue.
PS: Zaphod is a gentleman and always let's Emma win with the rope. He is very gentle with her and it is very sweet.
