    I'm going to order Nuvet Plus, from the direct site. Do you get it from a different source? I read some reviews on it, and it seems its legit and great supplement for the bullies.

    Oh ok..

    It can probally be the lack of nutrients on the food? I am not sure. Hopefully she will stop doing that when I change her over to Blue Wilderness for Puppy.

    ?
    I want to get the blue bag not the pink one
    I use Fromm, not Blue Buffalo, I would go with large breed if they have it.

    In order to get it you need a code, there is one on the "Forum" page. Get the tablets, not the powder, it is a better value.

    I disagree respectfully... When you are on Puppy Chow or Pedigree or any of that crap food, then yes. But supplementing instead of fixing your dog's diet is not going to make him healthier because he is still ingesting crap.

    Supplementing premium puppy food runs the risk of having your dog grow on an unbalanced growth. For example, overloading on calcium will cause your dog's bones to grow faster than its ligaments, etc.

    You can research this and you will find a consistent answer: ANY complete quality dog kibble should not need supplementing unless you are addressing a health problem. It upsets the balance of complete nutrition that premium kibbles strive to achieve. Recommending Fromm dog food and passing it as 6 stars then saying it is nutritionally deficient on a healthy dog is illogical.

    I just want to give you guys an update. I've doing the transition of feeding her Blue Wilderness Puppy food. She's been eating that. She eats like a pig. I've not catched her or seen her take a poop n try to eat it .. Which is a good sign. I hope it stays like that.

    I have a question. I am not sure where I got this from, but what is the best shampoo to use on the bully? I thought i had created a thread about that, but I can't seem to find it.

    I got a Johnson baby shampoo no tears and also a Hartz - Groomers Best Oatmeal Shampoo. It has a pic of a bully on it.
    I got unscented wipes, and q-tips . I also heard using sterile eye drops on the face folds are good.

    When my baby ate his poop, the vet said I needed to increase his food. Puppy grow at a fast pace.
