    Well you have gotten many great answers as far as food so I wont add to it BUT in the meantime if you wanna add in pumpkin to help a little it would be ok. BUT being 10 weeks old I wouldnt give very much and maybe being so small would be too early to give? I wouldnt think so tho. For full grown pups it is like a spoonful a day so for her little tummy I would think just a tiny bit of it would help firm her up maybe? It is good for them but overdoing it can cause too firm a so something to think about there too. lol. Welcome to the world of owning a bully. My boy is almost 6 and we are still always looking for the better food. haha

    If she is okay with the natural balance sweet potato treats then maybe try the natural balance food. My baby has been fed natural balance alpha dog: trout salmon meal and whitefish since she started eating dog food. It's made for all stages so puppies and adults get what they need from it.

    I can only add one thing, Stainless Steel bowls work best due to bulldogs sensitive skin, one day you may find yourself asking why does my bulldog have sores on his/her chin or face. Probably from plastic dish's.

    Good job showing us how you feed @EBDR35 aaaahhhh one more thing. Pictures of the little Angel........

    Thanks

A cup is somewhere around 235ml I think. It also sounds like the treats may be adding to the problem. Good luck with it.. and btw... we need PIX!!!!!!!
    Great Point, i figured since NVI is supposed to be 6 Stars and very Healthy that it would be just fine for Puppies, but you have a point it could be to strong. I will switch over back to puppy Food after this Bag since it is almost over, Maybe go back to Wellness for Puppies, What other Grain-Free Puppy food would you guys recommend? I might look into Natural Balance as well or Blue Wilderness, finding the right food is so difficult.

    I read that grain free is the best so that is mainly what i look for, i have also read that english bulldogs can be allergic to Chicken, so i also try to look for food without any chicken, which is another reason why i went to NVI Salmon..

    I will stop giving treats for now to see if that could be the problem, she was doing Ok with Sweet Potatos & Venison but im not sure about Brown Rice & Lamb Meal

    Also im going to buy a stainless steel plate now, thanks for the tip!

    some pics

    really seems like so much, but is that right? 1 cup (235ML)
    dont mean to but in and i hope you dont take this the wrong way but i see the food is in plastic feeding bowl,plastic is a no no for bullys ,feed out of ceramic or stainless steel to avoid that dreaded spotty chin,hope your not offended,karen

    @EBDR35 ok fromm has 2 grain free foods which say they are all life stages. now makes a grain free food just for puppies which is the company that i use for my pets. orijen has a grain free puppy food and they are an excellent company as well. canidae makes a grain free called elements and is all life stages it says. natural balance has grain free that is als also but i do like the alpha line better as it has more protein and meat in it. well thats enough to get you started good luck.
