Thread: Hello from Michelle and Diesel

    Default Hello from Michelle and Diesel

    Hi, I have been lurking around on this site for quite some time and decided to join. Diesel is 9 months old and a we love him dearly. We have never owned a bulldog before so I am trying to learn everything that I can. I have a question on weather I am feeding him enough. He was on Purina proplan shredded blend 1 cup twice a day. I have switched him over to fromm 4 star chicken ala ved 1/2 cup twice a day. He is maintaining weight. It's just been about a week since it's all the Fromm food. He is very active. Just recently he started getting into the bathroom garbage to eat papertowels. That's why I'm wondering if he's getting enough to eat. I also give him a little plain yogurt on top of his food. Is this enough for a puppy?

    Hi there Michelle and Diesel!!! So very glad you came out from hiding!

    I would increase it a bit. Until he is an adult, then cut it back. I give my adults 3/4 c twice daily, my puppies (5 mos old) get 1.5 c twice daily. You can give him some healthy snacks inbetween as well. Fromm is not full of fillers so it seems that since he is maintaining his weight, I would not be concerned, but once he hits the age of 1, keep an eye on his weight. Once they gain it, it is not easy to get them to lose it once they reach adulthood.

    Glad to hear you got off of Purina!!! Do you see a difference in his apperence? Share your story with us, we would love to hear about it!

    Oh, and PICTURES PLZZZ lets see your baby boy!

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    Welcome Michelle... and yes, post some pics. This is a very welcoming and helpful place, and glad you decided to join us! And I wouldn't worry about the paper towel thing... that's nothing - Chester ate my EARPLUGS 3 times!!! >.< (yes, I have them because both him and my husband snore and wake me up! ) Chester eats anything that catches his eye.. except cantaloupe! :p
