    What food was he on when you first got him?? The Natural Balance or something else????

    Also, how long has he been with you???
    Here is a story, when I decide to adopt a bulldog puppy, I went to online and find a breeder, he said he can give me for free since his father got cancer and he need to take care of him. what he want from me is $350 transportation fee. I think I can help him and ask when can I get the puppy. He said the next day, so when I ask him what food was he on, the breeder tell me mix the bil jac(small breed formula) and Proplan9(small breed formula). After several days, he is disappeared. So I found another breeder, she is a good person, we bought Bubu from her. We have checked with vet, she said it is ok to feed him with these two food, and we feed him about 12days, and we graduated changed to Natural Balance. He is with us from 9/28/12.
    I am really worry about him right now, and want to take a full-wellness exam for him next week, is it necessary?

    Have you cut back on his food? My 4 month eats 1/2 cup 3 times a day and my vet says I'm still feeding him too much. My full grown bullies on at 2 cups a day.

    I want to put him on a "bland diet" for a couple of days, I bought some chicken breast for him. I have a question that how about 0.2 cups of white rice with shredded chicken breast for a meal or a day?

    @Lucy-licious What is a pilchard? I only ask because I feed raw and am always looking for variety in their diets.

    He is almost three months old, and his weight is 20lbs, is that normal?

    Oh! They love sardines. Cleo especially loves salmon which she got all the time when we were in WA and the salmon heads, too. She's so nasty!

    @bububaby - I would say "yes" a full check up is a good idea, when you take Bubu in ask the vet what he/she recommends for the right amount of food for Bubu's weight and age, they have a formulary to go from. I hope things get better soon! Bubu is really cute!!

    WOAH. BIG EYES OVER HERE. Sometimes I wonder if I'm feeding Remi enough (2 cups total, broken up into 3 meals per day. Less if he received a large number of treats that day) but he keeps gaining weight, so I must be doing something right. 6 cups is pretty overloading his little system!! I bet those stools start hardening up if you lower the amount of food, and thus protein is getting. I think @kazzy220 has the right of it. If you do change his food though, make sure it's totally gradual.

    BTW, those belly pics are COMPLETELY adorable.

    Yup, I was heart-broken when I found I make such huge mistake, hope everything will be fine.
