I have a 2 year old border collie + lab mix who needs a high fiber food due to having issues expressing her anal glands. Her stool is too soft..I have added vetasyl fiber capsules to her food but they do not seem to help. Does anyone have any suggestions for food that is very high in fiber content?

Try a bit of canned pumpkin in the food when you are noticing the problem. Use one tablespoon full in a small dog and two in a large dog in each meal. That is probably the best, most reliable remedy that is natural. Sometimes just feeding cottage cheese and rice or chicken and rice for a day or two will do the trick too. If those things do not help and the soft stool is continuing, it is probably best to seek the care of a vet.
