Default Smelly poop!

Help! My puppy's poop has turned really smelly.

I have actually change his food to pro nature puppy. Reason being, my local pet store gave it for free as I licensed my puppy. Its from canada and has a website.

Could the food be the cause of it or it is a health issue? I fed him nature's variety instinct chicken formula previously and poop was ok. I am thinking of switching to royal canin instead.

Probably i will have to waste the whole packet of pro nature?

Usually when you change a pups food suddenly and not gradually this can happen. I would say its the food at this point unless he is showing signs of being sick. But food should be switched slowly so they don't get loose stools or upset tummy. BTW, Luke is adorable!!

I would take a stool sample in just to be safe.

Things like Giardia can cause really stinky poop.... even before other symptoms show up.
