    Default Dog Food for lab with sensitive stomach

    When I got Jessie she was eating pedigree food. I feed wellness for seniors but it seems that she just isn't doing well on that after a period time. She has loose stools, some that start out firm and then they get liquidy and at times they appear to have mucous in them she has had stool tests and she tests negative. She is a finicky eater as well. They are not always loose but the majority of them are. Her former owner tells me that anytme she ate any kind of table food she got diaharea, I don't normally give her table food anyway just occasionally I will give her a piece of chicken but thats about it. My cockers do well on the wellness but Jessie isn't any suggestions for food.

    Wellness was too rich for my labs...they had soft or loose stools. I have them both on Pinnacle chicken and oats and both their stools have firmed up.

    I had our older lab on Wellness but she got very loose stools. I put her on Pro Plan Selects Chicken & brown rice & her stools are firm.All three of mine are on Selects. I like the Wellness food, it was just too rich for Molly. You have to feed what works best for your lab. Good luck.

    agree with labby...i fed that to mine with a sensitive tummy for a while and she did great on it. also try feeding her smaller amounts; wellness and PPSS have higher calories in them than pedigree and dogs can get the runs with too much foods.

    Kaylie has chronic bouts of colitis, and about the only thing that doesn't eventually trigger an episode is Nutro Sensitive Stomach (Chicken, Oatmeal and Rice)
