    Default New Puppy Poop Talk

    Hello All,

    Dozer has been home for a little over a week. He is 10 weeks old. I just finished switching him from Science Diet Puppy to Fromm Puppy food. The past few days he has had soft serve poops. I am feeding him 1/2 cup 3 times a day. Is this too much? too little? should I wait it out for a while longer or look for a different food? more water or less water? Ugh!

    Thanks for the help

    That's an Awesome picture!!!
    1/2 3x a day should be fine - Arwen got 3/4 cup 3x a day. She's 4 months now, and I just started feeding 2x a day (started yesterday).

    I switched her to Fromm Beef (grain free) at 8 weeks, but she got hives. So I went to the Surf & Turf (grain free) and she loves it, and she does great on it. The 4 Star is a level above the puppy gold nutritional on both the Fromm website and the [replacer_a] page. I think the gold nutri food contains potato, which might be an issue - something to consider.

    Arwen free drinks, I don't ration her drinking. I might consider grabbing a small bag of Fromm 4 Star and see how he does. The 4 Star food line is manufactured to be able to switch between proteins without having to slowly convert - giving your Bully a great variety.

    Well, that's my !

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    I'm pretty sure Buster didn't have very solid poops for a while when we brought him home.

    Bo didn't either - but it was my fault because I switched him too quickly off of the crap food that his former owners had him on. To boot, it was Origin - way way too rich for the bully digestive system. Limited ingredient foods (like Natural Balance Bison / Sweet Potato) is what the rescue uses (where he came from) and we quickly switched. No more soupy poos.

    Hi DozerWA,
    Welcome to EBN! This is such a great community, I have learned so much here.
    Try mixing 1 teaspoon of canned pumpkin (not pie filling, plain pumpkin) with his food and that should help firm things up.

    Welcome to the site, you have some good advice above, so I am not going to add anything. FROMM is a good food, it's what we feed, and never restrict water. We keep them water down 24-7. your Dozer is a cutie, love the pic of him.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    I'd say you're well on your way to becoming an EB expert - because you are HERE! Read, read, read @smokey46 and then read some more. Education is the best way to approach such an important decision as a new family member. Welcome, best of luck and be sure to post some pics when/if your new angel comes home!

    Suffice to say, if a trouble-free, issue-free, easy-care dog is what you're after, the EB probably isn't the dog for you. And that's OK! Not everyone wants to put that kind of time/attention/money into having a canine companion. There are many, many great mixes at rescue that need homes too!
