Jamie - Bella is almost 5 months old probably around 40 pds now. She went to the vet 3 weeks ago and was 34.5. She has been gaining 2 pds a week. She is going to be a big girl.

I don't know if pumpkin would help.

Try giving the dog probiotics /acidophilous, CVS has strawberry chewable and it will help the breath also.

Well obviously yogurt doesn't agree with her. So instead of continuing to deal with water poop lol which I think could be even grosser than room clearing gas, give pumpkin a try but make sure its not the mix for pies.

Did she get anything else that day that isn't normal for her that might have contributed to the runny poop other than the yogurt? And it was plain regular, just non fat, not soy right?

Nothing else and yes it was just non fat plain yogurt.

It was kind of funny. Like I said, she has very good poop (spoken like a true Mom). When she started having the diarra it really startled her. When she had to go the third time, she looked at me like "What the heck?!? Mommmmm....do you see this????" Luckily it was only that "one" time. She didn't poop again until this Morning and it was fine again.

LOL

When my Bella had worms she gave me the same look. It was like "this isn't suppose to come out of my butt, not this watery" lol She kept looking back at her butt with the sounds it would make like "UGH WTF?"

Try pumpkin, but just give her a little bit and see if that causes the same problems.

I'll try the pumpkin and make sure I purchase a small container. I bought the large yogurt cause it was a better deal. Now I have to figure out what to do with it. LOL I'm not really into plain non fat yogurt.

I'm starting to think this yogurt in the food idea has not only helped Bella's gas but is helping Buster with his skin problem. I'm going to try to get another pic of it later, but it's starting to look like it's clearing up!
