    just an update. Thank you again for everyone's insight. My vet ruled out a parasite since I have two dogs that share a kennel through out the day. They share water bowls and food bowls as well. I am going to try switching to a raw food diet. Seems to be where my research keeps leading. Although I am going to have the stool tested just to ensure my Vet was right. Thanks again everybody!

    I can testify that two dogs can share everything and yet only one get parasites. Iíve had it happen more than once.

    Very true. I've seen that on one of my favourite vet show with puppies. 8 puppies , one dying with worm infestation , the other 7 healthy.

    Dogs and people react the same way. family of 4 or 5. one gets sick with some type of ailment possibly due to something they ate, the rest of the family is ok.
    We have 5 dogs at home [labs] 1 can get sick the other 2 are ok it happens many times.
    Make sure your dog is thoroughly checked out by your vet, costly at times but that is better than a possibly dead pet in the near future.

    I had a similar problem with my current 3 year old lab. From puppy to adult food. I switched him the same way and same food as all my other dozen dogs. He had bowel problems. I tried him on a grain free food (no grain no wheat, no rice) and he instantly became normal. Now , I switched all my dogs to grain free. Great results. I buy Kirkland brand grain free salmon and grain free turkey; also performatrim grain free duck formula. My dogs all seem healthier with grain free food. I also buy grain free biscuit treats.

    Update #2
    Latest stool sample came back negative. Cost me 17 bucks but at least now i know the vet was right. We are on day 2 of raw diet and there has been a major improvement. He went from 4 to 5 bowel movements a day to one. It no longer sticks to the grass either. I am surprised it only took 48 hours to improve.

    It don't take much change some times..

    An extra spoon of green beans or corn off the buffet can change things.. .if you know what I mean...
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.
