    I am a 6 month expert in Bulldogs raising. From everything we have been through and read I am a true believer the soft poop is a combo of puppy, new food, shots, new environment and etc. Odin will be fine. It's just part of the growing process. Hang in there. Ralphie. P.S. I'm no expert. Just lived through the shits times TWO.

    @RalphieBoy that's for the reassurance! I kinda feel like it might be that too, but just want to make sure we've checked all possibilities before I left my anxiety settle. It is crazy how fast and emotionally attached you become!

    He is tooooooo adorable! Omg... I want to squeeze him!

    Have you tried cutting back the amount of food he's getting yet? Even just a little can make a huge difference.

    @bullmama we did cut back on his food, and at first it did help, we are currently feeding him only 2.5cups of food per daY, but he is always hungry! I know that's just a bulldog thing too where they are sooo food motivated, but he is gaining weight good again, yesterday he was 18.5 lbs at 14 weeks.

    Does his poo look like soft serve ice cream, or dog food blended with water? If so, try cutting back to 2 1/4 and see if it helps.

    Those descriptions of poop are signs of too much food that is waste.

    It seems to have been chicken all along. Not long after my last post we switched fully over to Fromms Beef Frittata and everything has been perfect with his poops since.

    However, he now seems to have come down with kennel cough . While at the vet today the dogs before and after us were also there for the same thing, but I could hear them from the waiting room and they sounded much worse then Odin. I think we caught it early enough but are treating him with an antibiotic and cough suppressant to be safe. He is now 16 weeks old and weighed in just over 25 lbs - three weeks ago he was 18.5 lbs. the vet was very impressed with his behaviour (our puppy class has done wonders! - but is also most likely where we caught the cough).
