Food suggestion needed

I need a food suggestion that will help firm up Chance's stool. He is currently on California Natural Grain Free Chicken formula and I really think its way too rich for him. He has never had firm stool since I have had him so am looking for other Doberman owners suggestions of foods that work for their dogs.

Keep in mind, one size doesn't fit all when it comes to food. I don't feed kibble but many have success with Purina Pro Plan. Just be sure to switch foods over a period of 10 days. Incorporate new food into the old food slowly to avoid gastric upset.

Have you tried the allergy formula to see if he can tolerate it, the Chicken and Rice. Another thought, have you considered trying another protein to see if he is sensitive to chicken in particular? Maybe try the Lamb Meal and Rice to see what happens, get a smaller bag and be sure to do the slow changeover of 25%new to 75% old for three days, then 50/50 for three days, then 75% new food to 25% old before going to all new food.
