children's probiotic for my dog?

For some time now Nugget has a perfect morning poop, but the afternoon one is always soft and never well formed. I have tried cutting down his food as well as adding pumpkin to his meals, but it doesnt really make a difference. I have also rotated through different kibbles with no change either.

So, this morning i went out and bought him some probiotic powder, but seeing as he is only 7.5kg (17lbs) i decided to go for the children's powder, it has no added flavours, colours etc. The one i chose is lifespace probiotic powder with 15 different strains, and is recommended for kids between 3-12 years. https://www.lifespaceprobiotics.com...IhAcJ6VcC_ZjAMA0J4RoC-dsQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Would a regular probiotic powder for adults be ok, or would it be too much on his system?

Well this probiotic was a major fail! I gave him a tiny amount amount and it turned his soft poops softer and watery. SO i gave it a day with no additions, back to normal. Then i added a tiny pinch to his food and same water poop results!

I might just buy a dog specific probiotic with added digestive enzymes in it. I thought probiotics were supposed to help digestive problems, not make them worse!
Pro-biotic powder does the same for my husband as your dog, I guess some beings just don't react well on pro-biotics
