    every dog is different, just letting you know what works for our dog.

    Good luck and congrats on being a bully lover
    I'm glad that Beneful is working for you, however, I can not in a good conscience not say something - Please look at the ingredients, Beneful is consistently one of the lowest ranking dog foods out there (1 step above 'Dog Chow') Blue Buffalo is one of the higher quality foods out there, with a huge selection of GRAIN FREE (Does your dog go into a corn field and start eating?) Blue Buffalo also has 'limited ingredient' selection if your pup develops allergies. I actually laugh myself silly with the TV Commercials from the people who work making Beneful from Purina, and how they feed it to their pets.

    Please Google BENEFUL. (I'm not pitching Blue Buffalo, but I am pitching a high quality food with limited ingredients)

    Finally, with Bullies and their food -- Garbage in, Garbage out. Low quality food = HIGHER Chance of medical issues, allergies, yeast issues, tear stains, etc.

    Good luck

    OH and if you DONT subscribe to Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor PLEASE do for AT LEAST the Recall notices on food. It could save your Fur Baby !

    OMG, these 2 are such a cute pair! Lovely babies! So, you feed fur baby with wet dog food. I can think about 2 possible problems, may be, this food has not enough fibre for her colon to work well. In this case, adding some vegetables could help like carrot or above mentioned cooked pumpkin. Other reason may be it is a bit too little food for her and she literally has nothing to poop with, everything is digested. In this case you can try to give her a bit more?

    Thank you for the input. I checked out the reviews and Beneful is a 2 star food. I went ahead and ordered Fromm -4 star food. I just wonder what ingredient was in the blue buffalo that caused her to loose hair, hope Fromm doesn't have the same effect.
    I appreciate anyone that speaks their mind

    Okay so my baby has been on Fromm for 2 weeks or so and she loves it. I've been mixing her food (old with new) and I see her trying to get to just the new food. She's always sniffing the Fromm bag,lol, so I went ahead and ordered a 30lb bag so thank you all, even those that speak their mind,lol, for the great input and concern.

    Love this site��❤️��

    Hi fellow newbie,

    I had exactly the same problem with Ty, when I got him.
    after two trips to the vet, and a total change of diet I figured it out.

    He was EATING TO FAST

    got one of the bowls designed to make them eat more slowly, and immediately the diarrhea stopped

    Update since my Ellie has been on Fromm we havent had to, umm, wipe her tush, at least not like before. There's barely anything left (residuals on the back end) to wipe. So Thankful for this site and all of your input. I did notice she was having a little trouble passing #2 with the Fromm and the NuVet supplements so I stopped the supplements and seems everything has been passing smoothly ever since ��
    Still feed her a cup and a half twice a day though I do see her looking for more throughout the day but as a female myself I do know that we need to watch what we eat,unfortunately.
    Have a great night to you all and very happy Halloween
