    I have four dogs on Victor food and all four are doing very well with no stool problems (loose) at all. Three of them are older and not very active and are on the 23/11. My young dog is on the grain free 33/15. I have been very happy since changing over to Victor's last summer.

    My dogs have been on it about two months. Doing great and clean up is much quicker and easier.

    I have been feeding Victor for several months and am happy with it. I do have a couple of dogs that require split feedings a.m. and p.m. If I try to feed it all at once, I will get loose stools periodically. But these dogs did the same thing on my previous dog food. So I just split the feedings and they do fine.

    Yes, give it 3 weeks and it should solidify better.

    How much are you giving? I had some loose stools when I first switched 2 years ago but went away in a couple oc weeks. Part of the problem was over feeding
