Default Hard stool

My girl Belle has consistently had hard stool for awhile now. She gets the same food as my other spoo but Princess’s stool looks absolutely normal. She eats normally but I don’t think she hydrates enough. She does drink but just not as much as princess. What can I add to her meals to encourage a softer more normal stool? I always mix their kibble with either water or bone broth to provide extra moisture. Her energy level is good and she seems otherwise healthy but I always watch their stool.

I would add a sprinkle of this to her food: https://www.amazon.com/Diggin-Your-D...gateway&sr=8-6 It works on dogs with stools that are too loose OR too firm.

Pumpkin is a marvelous food to add - seems to straighten out all poop problems.

Poppy and Sophy are the same - Poppy has always tended to be costive, and the food that is exactly right for Sophy leabves Poppy just a little bunged up. As a final resort I give her a little liver, but pumpkin is usually enough - I freeze it in ice cube trays, and give her one defrosted cube.
