    He's a cutie for sure! I know lots of things can cause diarrhea...is he going to the vet soon so they can check a fecal sample? (just to rule out parasites). Food changes can do that too though on those sensitive bully tummies. I have heard of giving pumpkin for diarrhea or constipation but maybe someone with more experience in that department can chime in.

    Congratulations on the cute pup!

    He is adorable. I'm sure his system is very very stressed. Did you change food from what breeder had him on? You always need to do a very..very slow switch! And royal Canine is not a recommended food for bulldogs. I'm thinking he is on a puppy food? You can give him a tsp full of pumpkin..not the pie filling..but whole canned pumpkin. You need to settle him down..his whole system. I think I'd go to a bland diet for a few days, then slowly..very slowly introduce his new food. Good chance to get a better food than Royal Canine.

    @Davidh...might have some more ideas

    He sure is a handsome pup.They sure are cute when they are little. If the runs don't stop try pumpkin, get the canned stuff but be sure its not SPICED. Royal canin is ok but he may need a smaller size kibble .Just stay away from the wheat and corn based foods

    He is a cutie for sure. What food did the breeder have him on? If you changed his food that's probable the reason for the diarrhea. Plus Royal Canin is not that good of a food. I would transition him slowly to FROMM puppy, unless the breeder had him on a good food.

    He would have diaherria on ANY food that was a change for him. Breeder should've told you what he was on. But this is a good chance to start him right. Royal Canine isn't good. Not your fault, it's just a learning curve! If you can get him Fromm Puppy. If you can't I think Avoderm has a good Puppy Food. But his little system is just churning right now. Get the pumpkin, have him tested for parasites and start him on a quality food. He will be fine.

    @krystalturner2222 I can't believe the breeder didn't tell you what food he was on so you could continue with that and slowly transition him to a new food, we always do. FROMM puppy is a very good choice.

    Plus it's good to have an other Texan here, we live just west of Houston.

    So so cute, love the markings.... Grats.

    Ditto on the previous food advice... Bullies can be so sensitive to certain foods, and sudden switching of brands.

    He is sooo cute, for sure!! I think everyone here already rec what I would have. Maybe a bland diet wouldn't be bad for a day or two, but I'm not an expert on puppy diarrhea. For older dogs its ground beef and rice to settle the stomach. Good luck!
