    You need to read up on dog food here..go check out dog food ratings and what's in the dog food. @cowsmom can get you going in te right direction.

    Hi Glad you are getting her of Iams it is not the best food out there. I feed Blue Buffalo like you except I feed the longevity puppy. I have had no issues with the food, and Ike is doing great on it.

    Fromms is prolly one of the best foods. Blue is one of the better ones from the standards... Both are still very good foods

    We feed 3 times a day, as your bully gets older you might go to 2x a day. but right now your puppy needs the calories and nutrition to grow properly.
    If you havent changed her over, yet think about going grain free from Blue like wilderness or freedom. your bully will thank you for it. The next bag of food we get will be grain free. Also get some 100% pumpkin and add a tablespoon in the food when you feed her to help with loose stool.

    On a side note, if you are feeding only 1 time a day, that might by why Maggy is pounding through her water... she is could just be hungry..

    Anything else let us know!

    A puppy that age NEEDS to eat 3 times a day. About 1 cup each feeding. A good treat to give and this is what we use, is Fruitables and they have all different kind of flavors and ours love them.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    Maggie is beautiful and young, she needs to eat more during the day. Like at least 2 times , 3 is better. at least until she gets older. The new food might be ok for her. you will know by her skin if it isn't. Please feed her more times a day and let her have water during the also. thank you and keep us posted

    @pinkbully You didnt do wrong you were only doing what the breeder said . We know you love Maggie Moo because you are here and care enough to ask questions. Everyone here loves their dog and want only the best. I am constantly asking questions and learning something new everyday. My Fergus is my first Bully and when we first brought him home I thought we were doing something wrong and was doubting myself big time. Now I have the support to raise him the best I can

    Hey there,
    I would recommend a food that is wheat free. We fed our bully Holistic Select and it worked wonders. I would also recommend a wheat free treat that you can get from a pet store. What you spend in dog food will definitely be saved in vet bills. Trust me. We fed our boy once in the am and once in the pm. He was 55lbs and got 1 cup twice a day.
