    Hoping for more tonight...never thought I would wish for dog poop.
    I spoke to the vet and she said if it was an obstruction the vomiting would have gotten worse. Also, she said it could take a few days before he poops. It is good that he has an appetite.
    He hasn't been drinking water so I have been putting it in his food...hopefully he drinks soon....he wont even take ice cubes.
    Otherwise he seems himself besides being more sleepy than usual.
    Glad he is coming around.... keep us posted and great move on the water in the food -- keep him hydrated

    Yup, I know exactly what you mean. I agree that maintaining the bland diet, then adding kibble back in slowly is the best approach. Be sure to stay away from "hot" kibbles. Bulldog pups don't need as much protein as more active breeds, and do better on more evenly balanced foods. I wouldn't be using anything marketed as "puppy" dog food. In my opinion you should use a high quality adult formula kibble, then add in a daily vitamin, Glucosamine Chondroitin with MSM, and Ester C. I've always fed a little pure pumpkin for increased fiber to keep my pups regular and their stools solid. Oh, and I've always fed a tablespoon of Cod liver Oil with each meal for their coats and to keep everything slick in there. I've had numerous issues with my pups, but I've never had cause to doubt the wisdom of my feeding approach.
