    Default Not sure if it's new food or something serious

    So I've been switching Elliot from eukanuba puppy choiot to Fromm large breed puppy, for over a week now. I did the gradual change but the more Fromm I feed him the worse his diarrhea gets and today has been the WORST. Today it was straight watery, nothing solid and I'm just so worried. I tried the pumpkin, it seemed to only make things worse. He hasn't had loose stools pretty much since the day we got him and that was almost a month ago. I just don't know if it's his food or something worse? He has a vet appointment in 3 days I just don't know what else to try.

    How much are of the Fromm's are you feeding him? As it is a higher quality food he actually need less of it to get everything he needs. Typically 1 to 1.5 cups per meal depending on how many times a day you are feeding him.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Agree with above on the amount your giving him. Also, depending on his age, I know he's a pup but I can't remember his age - look into a good probiotic for him.

    He sure is a pretty baby, I hope he begins to adjust to the food and I hope you feel better with his progress from the food change. I love looking at his little pic cause he is so cute.

    Runny nose… is it green or clear?!! Having loose stools and a runny nose could indicate that he's caught a bug of some kind, I think a call to the vets might be wise. Respiratory issues in a bulldog is not something that you want to wait on…

    Thank you! Very cute when he wants to be and clear no color. I actually have a cold maybe he caught it from me?? And that's why he has the runs and is sick?

    Never have ever thought of that, so I went online and read upon it. The net says you can't pass it onto your animal. Still very interesting to learn that. I love when someone says something like this, makes for some interesting research.
