I wouldn't think worms or anal glands. The vet can do a simple check for both of those. Did they check her stool for worms and her anal sacs? I would think its more allergy related to something. What are you feeding her for food?

You are feeding her cheap food and giving her a worthless supplement. No the supplement isn't worth the money. $40 dollars every month on a supplement when you could be feeding her a higher quality food is what makes more sense. Pedigree is filled with corn and by-products amongst other nasty things. Her problem could be the pedigree. Get her on a Blue buffalo, taste of the wild, Innova. All of these foods have brands that are grain free. Taste of the wild is cheaper but good quality. You can eliminate the supplement and any allergies she may develop eating corn meal and fillers in the pedigree by going for the better foods :) I provided a couple of links for you that you can read through.

There are alot more much better foods than pedigree. If money is a concern- I would go with Diamond naturals. I have a dog on it with fish oil pills/occasiOnal ground flaxseed and his fur is nice and shiny, not alot of poop, and is in good health. It's a good food for a decent price. Otherwise, there are many grain free foods out there. If you have time, research and maybe switch to raw.

If you are almost out of the pedigree just grab a small bag and mix it with the new food for about a week. Slowly start weaning her off the crappy stuff or otherwise she will get diaherria. The better food will have that affect cause it is more rich and higher in protein. Oh and we love pictures on here. Hope you stick around ;) there's ALOT more to learn about than just food :) definitely keep us posted!

  • Start out 1/2 old kibble and 1/2 new kibble for 3-5 days.

  • Get yourself some Pumpkin pie filler and add a tablespoon to each feeding as it will help keep the stool firm and your puppy should adjust easily to the new kibble.

Just make sure the canned pumpkin is 100% pure pumpkin with no added sugars ;)

What you can also do it do 4 day switch.

Day #1 75% old Kibble 25 % new.
Day #2 50/50
Day #3 25/75
Day #4 100% new Kibble.

This eliminates the need for mixing anything else into the food- however, I would still get canned pumpkin to be on the safe side.
