Pooping in the house

Two days ago I woke up around 4 am to a weird smell. I look over to my dogs cage and there's poop. She hasn't went in the house in months. The stool was also a little loose. So as I get up to take her out to clean it up she goes to the top of the steps and poops again. Definitely not normal. Yesterday she was fine and as soon as i woke up to take her out she looks at me and begins pooping in the cage. Same thing today. She's been eating blue buffalo wilderness chicken flavor for about 2 weeks. Before that she was on the salmon flavor but she stopped eating it so I got the chicken and she loves it. Could it be the food that's upsetting her stomach? She's also shedding a lot more than normal. Yesterday I fed her a third of what I usually do but it didn't seem to do much. Any ideas of what could be the problem would be great.

Could be allergies. My boy is allergic to grains and chicken based kibbles. Poor pup. Hope they feel better soon!! Try some pumpkin purée in the food (not pie stuff just pumpkin) it helps the belly

Thanks for the response. I will try that. Should I keep her on this food or try something else?

It could have nothing to do with her feed. She may have eaten something that she picked up off the floor, drunk some standing water, or (I'm assuming she's a pup?) she might even be teething. Give her just water for about 12 hours - then feed her a small portion of rice with boiled chicken (remove fat/bones). If her poop isn't looking more normal with 24 hours, she should see a vet to rule out coccidiosis or anything more serious.

Did you change the food right away, or switch slowly? If right away, the change is probably upsetting the tummy. What Ames said will help a lot.

She's 11 months. Her water is always fresh. I will try the rice and chicken to see how that works. Thank you.

I changed it right away. I read somewhere on here that you only need to gradually change foods if you are going to one with lower protein and vice versa. I'm not sure how true that is. Both of them have the same nutrients percentages.

Blue buffalo isn't the best food. Not the worst either. More marketing than anything. It may or may not be the food. I'd just try some pumpkin with each meal. It helps keep the stool consistent and solid.
