    Usually its just food. This last time though it was more of a dry heave and a little stomach juice. She gets about a cup 3 times a day.

    Yes, i stopped the antibiotics because i felt like they were messing with her system, and wasn't really sure if they're necessary for a red face. I'd rather try home remedies like wiping her after she eats and switching her bowls before i pump her full of medication. I assumed the vet would suggest these things but they didnt even mention it! She came home from the vet yesterday with more medicine! anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea. Its crazy. My husband took her i probably would of refused them.

From vomiting, and loose stool to pink face and chin acne. I've switched her food from the Royal Canin she was eating from the breeder to Wellness core puppy. She seemed to be okay at first (her poopies were looking a lot better) but now shes back to throwing up at least once every other day and loose stool. She loves eating grass, and beetles! I do my best to stop her but have you ever tried getting a little beetle out of a bulldogs mouth?! LOL. I'm worried sick and my husband is taking her to the vet today. (She was previously prescribed antibiotics for the chin acne) Just can't wait to pin point what's having my girl not feel good! This post is a little all over the place, i apologize if its hard to follow! Any feed back or experience would be appreciated!

    As for the bely, issues i would stop all treats and feed kibble only till she is settled . Might even want to go bland diet fir a few days.

    What Wellness core are you feeding?

    I am considering putting her on a bland diet before i transition to a new food.To get her poopies back to normal. AND i just gave her kibble for her treat last night and she gobbled it up just like the actual treats! Thank you for the tip.

    Sigh, some vets like some doctors think that they need to prescribe meds to everyone who visits. Can be either a money thing or simply a way of looking like they're trying to help.

    My Billy was a very sickly puppy. He puked and had runny poops all the time, he also got rashes of hives so we spent a lot of time trying to find a food that helped. Eventually we gave up a while and he lived on home cooked until he was almost 12 months old when we very gradually transitioned him on to the same food as Lucy. It didn't agree but he only got hives so we switched and switched eventually finding that duck protein base suited him.
    I really can't help with food for you as I live in the UK. But try not to stress too much, try feeding boiled chicken rice and veg for a little while until her tummy settles. Give her either a boiled egg to chase or just break some up in her bowl with breakfast, it helps bind poops. Plenty of water too.
    Clean the bowls after every meal, stainless steel are best, and keep her chin and lips dry using medicated wipes until the rash goes.

    I'm sure someone else will help with food but generally look for grain free xxx

    So what were the reasons given for the meds? Or was there no explanation ?

    The antibiotic was for her chin acne. She had 2 or three spots with "pusstules" (i probably spelled that wrong) to my understanding it was just to take care of the open acne to keep from any further infection. Fran never seemed to be in pain or uncomfortable. It was more me noticing it than her showing signs of a problem. The nausea and diarrhea meds given yesterday were the vet saying nothing is wrong with her (after we made the appointment to make sure she doesn't have a parasite or something really wrong since she throws up pretty consistently). I really cant believe they didn't mention anything about a possible diet change. I find it really bizarre that the solution was for my dog to rely on pills to calm her digestive tract than to maybe experiment with other feeding options. Luckily i found this site! You guys are great.

    All experience helps and i really appreciate it! Her food is grain free currently, but i'm just realizing she has small treats that are a commercial brand and are a mixture of all kinds of fillers and crap. So those are getting tossed. I'm working on an elimination diet. First going to start with taking away the treats and using kibble as a training reward (so far it works, shes a little fatty ) and see if that helps any. Next step will be a bland diet and replacing her water bowl because it is plastic.

    She is too young for him to jump on the food, but I would do bland diet for a few days and then transition to her kibble over that time... she how she does as you increase kibble.

    If she starts to vomit you know the kibble isn't for her....

    Do you recommend chicken or beef? I've seen a lot of posts where people are talking about their bully being allergic to chicken.
