    Yes, Chicken. I'm not telling you that your Bully is allergic to chicken. I'm suggesting that she might not be tolerating it very well because, as you alluded to, she's having digestive issues. The common denominator seems to be the chicken...either the chicken protein in the food or the added protein in the chicken with which you supplement that food. By the way, your Bulldog does NOT require that extra protein in the kibble you've been feeding...it's simply too much. I might also suggest that feeding too much will prevent the digestive tract from doing it's job properly and the food is just blasting on through her and that = loose stool. It's too much for her digestive tract to process.

    Many puppy foods contain more than one protein...that's a good thing, that will likely help allergy-wise. Try some different protein puppy foods WITHOUT adding chicken.

    I was under the impression that you were asking about Pebbles only and not your other dogs. Since Pebbles has likely only been with you for 2 months there's no possible way to adequately try "everything from raw to EVERY dog food available". Am I to understand that you are asking for advice to find a single food that will accommodate "all of the above". If so, I think that's not likely to happen.

    IMO, until Pebbles is sorted out digestive-wise, my advice is to feed a high quality grain-free/chicken free puppy food without the addition of chicken and/or any supplements. Try a food for at least 2 weeks before you admit defeat and move on to another food. Once you find something that works and once her digestive tract has settled, then you might consider adding supplements...one at a time. GL.

    What ever food you deside to go with, what your pup needs the most is digestive enzymes. That is why she is eating poo. Poo has gone through the digestive system and has those enzymes. Processed dog foods don't have any enzymes, so she needs them from raw or uncooked food. There are supplements as well, but they're never as good as the real live stuff. Tripe is great and probiotics from fresh sauerkraut. You can add those with her kbble. If you rather supplement then just google digestive enzymes for dogs and go animal rather than vegetable based.

    Yes meant other dogs, just referring to the chicken I grill for them.

    "I have never seen a dog so obsessed with food"

    You should see my son's 2 pitbulls. One of them is like over obsesse with food.

    Orijen for puppies is very rich in calories. If you dog eats poop the dog needs a high rich kibble. I would, like suggested above, give an enzyme. I was walking Nyala in the dog park and this GS was eating dog poop everywhere he could find. Lady was calling him but he was too busy eating poop. She couldn't see what he was doing. But I sure did. I yelled back..." he's busy eating dog poop". When I got closer to her she said hes been eating poop cause hes vegan! He has allergies. so there, get a proper kibble.
