Q. My Shih Tzu had puppies 6 weeks ago. What complete dog food is reccomended to harden stools?
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. If your Shih Tzu is still nursing her puppies it is best to feed her a puppy or nursing formulation. This will help her to make enough milk so that the puppies can continue to grow big and strong! If she is having loose stools, adding in some pumpkin puree to her diet can safely add fiber to bulk up stools some without affecting the puppies. However, if the loose stool continues for a while, scheduling a checkup with your local vet is always best. Have fun with the puppies!
