|yeah, unfortunately it is all too common. Max has some issues.. Diet is very important. What are you feeding now? My dogs have done the best on Grain free foods- especially Taste Of The Wild Pacific Stream formula. Max actually has completely firm poops on it! For the first time in 3 1/2 years! I've been satisfied as long as it was not completely runny, soft was acceptable- now Max is actually having regular poops! I'm loving it! Bol!
Yogurt, Pumpkin, plain rice are all good things that can firm up poops. I'd be concerned mainly because he can't hold it. Has your vet done a stool sample to rule nasty anything out? Also, as Chewbaca also said, Colitis is another likely culprit for these pups.
But start with diet. Try and find something without corn, soy, or byproducts. Your primary sources of protein should be (in the top five ingredients) at least one fresh meat source and at least one meat meal. IE, Chicken, Chicken Meal, etc.
California Naturals is a bit low in terms of protein, but a lot of pups who have really sensitive stomaches or allergies do really well on them because of their limited ingredients. Head over to the food and nutrition questions if you have specific questions about food. You can also check out www.boxerworld.com and their sister site, www.dogfoodanalysis.com for some great information as well. Go to the reviews on dogfoodanalysis, personally, I stick with 4 stars and up.
