My yellow lab was weaned on a name brand feed recommended by our vet. He has always had soft or loose stools, and my vet assured us this would change as he matured. As he matured we continued the same brand and he began to develop a bad smell from behind. My vet tested him for all kinds of worms and parasites; everything was negative. The loose stools continued and our vet had us add different products to his feed in order to "bulk" up his stool. Our vet felt a harder stool would naturally help secrete the smelly glands and thus clear up the problem. Nothing worked, if anything his stools became looser. After numerous painful (and expensive) gland excretions, my vet suggested surgery to remove the glands to get rid of the smell, but said he would probably be incontinent of stool the rest of his life. He was only a year old at the time, and there seemed no other option. Our sweet lab was stinking up the entire house and making everyone gag. After a conversation with a friend about her daughters food allergies, I thought I would look for a new food for my lab. While in Walmart getting dog toys I walked past Pure Balance Lamb & Brown Rice Dog Food. Within three days of this new food my labs stools were normal and formed for the first time in his life. His smelly behind cleared up within another week and that was over a year ago! He has been eating Pure Balance Lamb & Brown Rice Dog Food for over a year and he is a picture of health. No more painful gland excretions or costly life changing surgery! No more smelly behind! Oh, and we changed vets too! Love this dog food, it changed my dogs quality of life. Thank you Pure Balance.
