schelmischekit ty, thanks a lot for your comments. I'll talk with Butter about this.
BTW, have you heard about SENTINEL? This is Butter's vet gave for deworming.

I increased Butter's food by 1 cup/day to 4 cups a few days ago. His poo almost doubled, and softer than before. So I decrease to 3 1/2 cups a days. The poo is getting better...
As for stool testing, I have been collecting stool samples with vet provided container for a couple of days, will be send back to vet tomorrow. BTW, the price for testing stool is CAN$39.75 tax included. Is it expensive?

Update: After feeding 1 cup more for a week, Butter has gained about 1 pound @ 51 lbs from 49-50 lbs 8 days ago, and his ribs is less visible.  :)

Thanks everyone for your helpful comments.

BTW, I just sent the stool sample to the vet after 1 week's poo collection.
