    I already had an appointment with the vet for him tomorrow so I will see what they say.
    Sounds like a typical bulldog Anytime I bring Boris over to my parents house he eats all the flowers off their stems and my mother gets really upset. He also really enjoys rolling over them until they're flat against the ground. I let my parents watch him this last weekend while I attended a wedding and when i picked him up my mother commented on how he will continuously eat sticks if not watched. We went home and Boris didnt move all night, the next day he pooped and his stool was 50% sticks and the rest was a collar from a T shirt.... I have a feeling I will not be using my parents for dog watching anymore ^^

    It's an old picture, but here's Boris attempting to knock the hanging basket off it's hook so he can eat the flowers (notice the tramped bushes to the left)

    Figured this would fit here since chunky is sick from possibly eating something he shouldn't have.

    Charlie was on the Orijen puppy food but had the exact same issues with loose poos etc...it really was a frustrating experience. We switched to their parent company, Acana and their Pork and Butternut squash with a half mix of Acanas Pacifica fish kibble-a little boiled turkey, a teaspoon of real pumpkin and some coconut oil. The results were immediate. Charlie is pooping like a champ! I've never been so happy to scoop poop and his coat is crazy smooth, no gas and a clean bum.

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

    Matt, you can freeze real pumpkin in ice cube trays then keep in
    freezer in plastic zip lock bags & use as needed

    Thanks, i will see what the vet recommends today and will switch again and hopefully he will do well with the new food. Whats the reason for the mix of flavors?

    No real reason other than what benefits may come from the fish....he's a consumption machine, it could be a horse turd and I don't think he'd mind...

    The vet says he looks good and that as long as the blood in the stool is bright red not to worry that he probably ate too much grass or something else since he was doing better for a few weeks. No heart trouble or anything else.

    I am keeping chunky on Orijen puppy for now but, started adding pumpkin to his food and now his Poo schedule has changed. He is not going right after I feed him now and didn't go last night. He went first thing this morning but hasn't all day now. Is this the new normal or is he possibly constipated?

    You've gotten great advice but I'll just throw some more words in as well.
    Opies stool was lose when we got him and switched his food multiple times as a puppy till we finally got something he agreed with. We personally like Blue products. We put him on blue wilderness puppy and his stool was not firming at all and was actually worse. Ended up that food was a little too rich for him. We than put him on blue sensitive and he has been thriving off that ever since.
    Also as mentioned over feeding can result in loose stool, we actually over fed Opie to the point he had explosive diarrhea, and that was only adding 1/2 cup more.

    I scanned through the thread to see, but I may have missed it.... which protein are you feeding and how much at each meal? Also, how much pumpkin are you giving... pure pumpkin, right?
