My coonhounds won't eat

So I have both my B&T's on Valu-Pak the blue bag dog food, Plus I would mix in wet food Purina Pro Plan Focus Puppy food. Well, the last couple of days, they only want the wet food. They are refusing to eat the dry food. So, I switched kibble to Purina Dog Chow, yes I know it's a bad dog food, but I wanted to see if it was the Valu-Pak kibble they didn't want. They refuse to eat the Purina Dog Chow kibble too. They are eating grass too, more than usual. Both of them are having loose stool too. They are drinking water, when I can keep it in their water tub. They like to dump out the water tub. Do not know if it is a behavioral thing or what. But i have not been able to get my male to stop his incessant barking. Unless I put the bark collar on him. And I do not like doing that. I am VERY VERY Worried about them not eating the kibble.

Are they fat or losing weight? Do they act sick? If they are fat they could be just eating the wet food and being satisfied. If losing weight quit feeding wet or feed more.

Sounds like they need to be wormed. I would worm them three days in a row and make sure they have fresh water. And don't wet their food.

What is Panacur C?

Also sold in Tractor Supply as Safeguard Granules in the Dog Wormer dept. You will need to buy enough of the 50 lb and 20 lb packets to match your dogs weight.

Panacur C (fenbendazole) is a broad spectrum parasiticide used to treat hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, and whipworms in dogs. It is also used by veterinarians to treat other parasites.

Dogs (6 weeks of age or older) Also can be used safely with a dog carrying pups.

• Can be added to food
• FDA-approved for use in dogs
• Side effects are rare
How it works:
Fenbendazole is a member of the benzimidizole group of anti-parasite medications which makes it a relatively broad-spectrum medication. It binds to parasitic proteins which leads to damaging the integrity and the transport function of cells in parasites.
Side effects are rare, but may include loose stools. Since humans can contract roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms from pets, it's important to maintain good personal hygiene. It's also important to eliminate fleas and to not feed your pet uncooked meat or fish. To prevent re-infection, clean up stools on a daily basis.
