Fromm's. I did not add water to the food tonight - she did perfectly fine with it, and actually after supper decided to knock her basket of toys over and grab a stuffed lion and do laps around the house while shaking her head with it in her mouth - which I have never seen her do either, but sure is funny to see those little legs move so quick! She acted like she liked the new food so far and we had no puking or redness, itching, diarrhea or anything yet so hopefully this does work for her. I read though that with Fromms you don't need to feed as much so I may only need to do 1 cup. Then introduce new treats as we progress with the diet changes.
Isn't it funny how hard it is to change our diets, but so easy to change theirs for them? Lol.
Whoever said diamonds were a girl's best friend has never owned a bulldog <3
Everything your currently doing sounds great. We feed our guys the Fromms Beef Frittata, and they get 1 cup in the am, and 1 cup in the pm. They were getting 1 cup three times a day when they were puppies, but we reduced the feedings to 1 cup twice a day when they were 7 months old. They currently weigh 45 lbs each at 18 months old. Stools are great, firm but soft, and they go 2 to 3 times a day. I do add warm water to their kibble, because I did it when they were puppies, and I continue to do it because they don't seem to drink a lot of water during the day, they will drink water when we are outside, and I give them on our walks, or when we come back from a walk, they go right for their water dish, but when in the house they don't drink too much water, so I add it to the kibble, just to ensure they are getting enough water and hydration, plus my male Bulldozer has a severe underbite and his upper and lower teeth don't meet together, so he eats a little slower than his sister, who is a Hoover and inhales her food. Lol. The water makes his food a little easier for him to eat, and they both seem to like the water, they lick their bowls clean every time.
To determine if you should reduce Brynn's food to 1 cup twice a day from the current 1 and 1/2 cups, just watch her stools, and the frequency of them as well. The stools should be firm, but not hard, and soft but not mushy, and she should be going about twice a day or three. If she's going more than that, and the stools are like soft serve or mushy, then reduce her food. Also keep an eye on her weight, to see if she's gaining too quickly, or maintaining her weight.
