Nekhbhet & belinda your right her stools are just not bulky enough, infact they are very small, so small i can barely find it in the grass to cleanup after! I thank everybody for the suggestions and i am going to try phuds as metamucil is too hard to try mix into bones or raw meals. We now walk her across to the park same time every mornin when i get up and everynight just before bed so that she has a regular bowl schedule & we know shes not holding it in (because she wont go in the backyard)
