Any problems with Wellness Duck/Sweet Potato?

My 2-year-old Golden Retriever has had diahrrea on and off the past several days and my husband has noted that it seems to happen when he gives her the Wellness Sweet Potato and Duck canned food. Our other dog, small and a pickier eater, has lately declined to eat this particular food when it's served.

I checked the bottom of the can, which says "best by 26 September 2011" so it's not expired.

I Google searched the brand for awhile and only found good reviews and recommendations for this brand, so am puzzled as to what the problem may be but it seems to be the only consistent trigger for her problems.

Has anyone else noticed issues with this food?

It may be your individual dog. Honey does terribly on Canidae although many dogs flourish on it. It's not at all uncommon for particular dogs to be intolerant of certain foods that most dogs to very well on. If your dog isn't doing well on Wellness D/SP, go ahead and try something else.

One thing I have noticed is that my dogs tend to have soft stools when they eat canned.
I agree with Reno -- it's probably the protein source. Have you tried something blander, like fish?
