      You Guys Are Terrific!

      I am going to call the vet to see if I should take in a fecal sample. They did blood work and I thought that might red flag parasites. I’m driving near the vet today, so I could easily run in a sample. One thing I didn’t mention is that Marley poops a ton. On long runs or walks he goes 4-6 times. I fill more bags than you could ever imagine. It’s like it runs right through his body. Generally it is solid...no diarrhea issues. But it’s a pain to carry so many bags. Marley is smart and takes me to the nearest garbage can each time. After he poops, I say “Trash can, Marley! Where’s the trash can?!” He runs right to the next can. Thanks again for all the wonderful advice, dear friends.

      It sounds like he is not getting the nutrients out of the food. You may want to consider a good probiotic to increase the good gut bacteria. Talk to your vet about it.

      Or that might not be the best food for him as it doesn’t sound like he’s absorbing much of it. Maybe try a different kind?
