Poop Chart

"The best poo is Score #2 … however….. if you are seeing Score #3…. that is acceptable too.

If you see Score #4, 5, 6, or 7…… there is a problem and treatment protocol needs to be adjusted."

What does #1 indicate what needs to change to correct it?

#1 mean constipation.

To fix it that usually starts with having the dog drink more water... and if that doesn't work... change the diet by adding more liquid (water) to the food itself.
Olesia, was owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.. Izzy passed away on February 13, 2020 at 15 years old. She lived with EPI for 13+1/2 years. It was because of Izzy that Epi4Dogs was started... she was the inspiration. May her legacy of helping others with EPI continue for as long as needed.........
