I've always heard that pumpkin is great for them because of the fiber and good for their anal glands etc. Also, the yogurt for their tummys etc. How much do you give them a day?

I give canned pumpkin every morning (1 medium sized spoonful per dog), and that, along with the flaked barley and oats, really keeps their stools firm.

As for yogurt, some dogs can get upset stomachs from it, so I only feed a smaller spoonful (per dog) every morning. I try to use goats milk yogurt because goats milk is easier on their stomachs than cows milk...it's quite a bit more expensive though (about $7.00 at Whole Foods for a big container), but it will last several weeks. Hope that helps!
