    Get some of the Earthborn puppy food. It's high quality food. Don't get a huge bag til you know if it will work with your bully. Food choices depend entirely on the bully as not all bullies can eat the same food. Food allergies in bullies are high but not all the same. Get it, try it, and if it doesn't work, move to another high quality food. Transition him to the new food slowly, very slowly. If you don't know how ask here and I will explain it.
    Thanx for joining EBN....

    Out of the choices you mentioned I would try Orijen or Earthborn. I imagine the price has to do with being in HI, it is about $15 cheaper in the USA. @Telly03 is also in HI maybe he can help?

    Hey guys,

    i went to the pet food place and talked with the owner about the different foods. I ended up choosing earthborn meadow feast, i wanted puppy vantage but didnt like that it wasnt grain free. Im currently on day 3 of slowing switching foods for my puppy. Poop smells less potent then before which is a good thing! he munches this stuff up! but poo is still inconsistent, i will have to wait till after the full switch over to see how he does.

    thanks for everyones help on this.

    It took us about a month to see a full difference in and after switching foods...If you notice its softer cut back a little on the new food or you can add some canned pumpkin (not pie filling) and that will help with loose stool

    thanks for your help, really. I am almost done switching foods, the poo is still soft. well, half firm half soft. is it normal if he is eating about 1/2 cup x3 times a day? i was giving him 3/4 cup but i am cutting back because he doesnt eat all of it.

    We just started Einstein on earthborn about 2 weeks ago. He was on taste of the wild until the recall. Haven't noticed a difference yet. Good luck and keep us posted. He is adorable by the way!

    Brutus gets 2 x a day 1 1/4 cup ... Sometimes if he had fruit/veggies I will give him less...He is almost 12 mnths but very active

    Don't be afraid of the garlic. The amount he would have to eat to do him harm is ridiculously high. Small amounts are fine (some would even say beneficial)

    ALot of the food choices you have are great, it just depends on what works for your bully. we went through at least 6 kibbles before we just settled on one that lola liked. it was taste based, we havent found anything that disagrees with her yet - allergy wise or poo wise. except acana, which disagreed with her smelly bum! maybe i just disagreed with it. we're on natural balance alpha lamb and rabbit formula with some liver treats sprinkled on top!
