    Welcome to you and Fran...she is a cutie!

    For the chin acne, I would start with getting rid of the plastic bowl and switch to stainless steel. The plastic can be what's causing it. And try to wipe her face after she eats or drinks.

    You can also try a slow feed bowl or elevated bowls which may help with the vomiting.

    Agree with the bland diet for a few days to get her belly back on track and then transition back to kibble. You can also add in a probiotic and a little bit of pure pumpkin (not the pie filling).

    I just dealt with diarrhea in my 4 month old and I tried to wait it out but after a few days it was getting worse so then I took him to the vet to rule out parasites and he was put on Metrozindale (I know I'm spelling that wrong) which he took for a week. Stool was getting a little better so vet said give another week. Medication can really mess with your body be it a human or dog so I decided to stop it after the week and he is all back to normal now, he just had a little stomach bug.

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.
    More meds? Ouch. Dont need them for acne and diarrhea. If Fran is playing, eating, drinking a happy normal puppy your answer is the food! Start over like you mentioned with bland diet get her back on track and then add kibbles slowly. Stay away from Wellness especially RC. BTW, I personally would change vets! For a vet to give you unnecessary meds says it all for Fran's future if needed. She needs to build her own immune system. Unless it's an emergency, ok. Not sure where you live but someone in here will guide you to a proper vet in your area.

    Thank you! I am in Delran, NJ. 15 minutes away from Philadelphia. This vet was recommended through the AKC and the staff has been great i just really get a bad feeling with them being so quick to pump out meds, especially when we know she is a sensitive breed. Starting bland diet immediately!

    AKC just like CKC is all about money. There's a list in here somewhere. @2BullyMama has it if you want to change vets.

    Thank you for your help. It means a lot and i'm sure Franny will appreciate it too!
    This is a great guideline for high quality kibble, which I also use with bland diet


    8 weeks 1/2 cup 3 times a day
    12 weeks 2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    4 & 5 months 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    6 months to 1 year 1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day
