Déjà vu, must be a glitch in the matrix... You're very welcome for thanking me for reading and responding, its my pleasure. But please by no means take what i say as gospel. For real help your best bet is to contact a vet (veterinarian). With that said, i'm pretty sure i responded to a very similar post earlier in the day. To save time, here's a link to said post, "#2". In my original reply, i didn't elaborte on portion sizes of the mixures, basically, 50, 50, 50. If you'd like to delve deeper into exact measurements feel free to pm me...

My first step would be to try a kibble that has a different protein than you are currently feeding. My late dog got diarrhea from anything made with salmon even though he wasn't ALLERGIC allergic to it. It's pretty common for dogs to have a sensitivity or allergy to chicken, which is one of the most common kibble ingredients. You might consider a kibble specifically formulated for "sensitive stomachs" or the like. I would also have a vet do a fecal test to see whether your pup might have something like giardia or another parasite that is affecting his digestion. Also, how is the dog's weight? If he's is not lean, you may be feeding him too much, and overfeeding can cause soft stools as well. How many times per day do you feed him? If it's only once, splitting up his food into multiple smaller meals might help.

Please note that the diet "stbob" is promoting is not a balanced diet and is not advisable for long-term consumption, especially for a young dog that is still growing.

Not promoting, just stating how i feed my dog, even throwed in the disclaimer about checking with a vet before doing as i do. And for what it worth, my vets applauded my food choices. Now here's something to think about. Take a dog owner who believes its feeding the best balanced diet day in and day out, several years from now the FDA recalls your favorite food, due to toxins or other bad stuff. Me, i've been continually switching up what i feed the beast for decades, what are the odds all my choices were bad. Food for thought....
