    That's sounds like to much for a 17lb puppy zilia is 40lbs and that is what she eats a day I feed her orijen six fish and she does great on it

I think i was over feeding him plus transitioning foods. I will go get some groceries tomorrow and go bland if no improvement.
    how is the Chunkster doing today?

    He did good last night other than going more frequently and it was more solid and less orange. He hasn't went since I fed him at 730 but seems to be feeling well because he has slept little and played a lot which isn't the norm for him. He usually eats then sleeps for 2 hrs after a walk. Luckily I am home all day today so I will keep a good eye on him. He has never let me know when he has to go out Ive just had to watch him but now he does tell me when he has already went which is new and wide awakening at 4 am. :big laugh:

    Thanks for asking

    Talked to the vet again this morning and was told his bowels would be loose for a week to ten days on new food but to watch for blood and to come in if I see any. He seems to be feeling well and is very playful now so I hope nothing all will be well.

    Well Chunky is back to having blood in his stools and his face gets more red as the day goes on. I am guessing he has food allergies or something. I am taking him to the vet in tomorrow anyway so I will see what they say.

    I really thought he was doing better

When I first bought Chunky a week ago the breeder had him on purina pro plan lamb and rice which is a small pup food which Petsmart says wasn't what I should feed him and they recommended Royal Canin puppy for bulldogs. His stools have always been on the loose side but now they are mushy. I have given him half purina/half royal canin 3/4 cup 3 times per day for a week now but, I am two days away from being out of the purina i was given by the breeder. I also give him Blue wilderness treats when he uses the yard to go to pee/poop but he now shows no interest in the treats so i just praise him. Could the treats along with the change of food be causing his troubles? I also see that many of you have taken your dogs off of royal canin, is this because it also didn't work well with your dogs?

    There is a store located 20 minutes or so from me that sales fromm and Orijen should I switch to one of these?

    Chunky is 13 weeks and 17.4lbs
    I used RC:BD Mix for about 6 months and it worked out pretty well, but it's not a great food for your Bulldog. If you don't mind spending more money I'd recommend Fromms as others have said before me. I stopped getting fromms and recently switched to Taste of the wild and we've been really happy with it and it saves us some $$$ as well. If stools are generally loose you can put some canned pumkin in his food. I also used Firm up since it's easier to open and close and doesnt spoil as fast

    I switched him off the royal canin and put him on Orijen puppy about 3 weeks ago. I think part of his problem is he will eat anything he can get in his mouth. I think he has possibly ate some flower, leaf or insect of some kind that has upset his stomach again. I chase him around taking stuff out of his mouth every time he is outside.

    I already had an appointment with the vet for him tomorrow so I will see what they say.
