    Default 9 week old English Bulldog

    We just bought this beautiful bulldog last week and are new to the forum. I wanted to join to get insight from EB owners. The one question I would like to get advice on is the pet food. We are currently feeding her Fromm. It seems that her poop is not consistently formed. Some times it is more like a mush texture. Any tips or insight on how to get her poop more formed? Also, any chew toys that u guys really like? It seems she likes my kids feet right now. Lol.

    Thanks,

    Derek

    Congratulations!! She is absolutely gorgeous!! As for her poop- usually soft serve indicates overfeeding. The food gurus here ( they are awesome!) Will be here shortly to give advice. They got me thru my trials and tribulations 7 years ago with my first EBD! I now have my second who is 11 weeks old! Fromms is a great food! My breeder had me overfeeding Jackson and I had the same issues. I cut back and stools firmed right up! Add some pure pumpkin- its great for digestion. Hang on, you are in for a wonderful wild ride! Best advice I can give- routine, consistency and PATIENCE!! Welcome! The people here will get you through anything!!

    I agree w/Mary... I would cut back on the food, I gave my pups Fromm's puppy gold at the start. Nylabones or antlers are the best chews for puppies (in fact Nylabones makes a puppy chew) have several around so she makes a better choice other than your kiddo's feet. Absolutely NO rawhides... they are a chocking hazard!!! KONG also makes great puppy toys, just be mindful to keep an eye out so that she doesn't chew off a hunk.

    She is absolutely adorable, CONGRATS on your new baby!!!

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate all of the advice. We were giving her 1/3 cup of Fromms 3x/day. Looks like we were under feeding her based on what Iím reading on the forum. We switched to 1/2 cup yesterday and we will monitor her closely.

    1/3 3xa day is not enough for a puppy it’s around 2-3 cups a day. Or 2 cups with snacks. Raw frozen Marrow bones is the best for any chewing time. Have your butcher cut them 2-3” long. Feed from frozen.

    What a beauty! I agree with all the advice, antlers and nylabone/Kong toys are the best. AVOID SQUEEKERS, you’ll end up finding them in your lawn!

    Agree with all the comments about 1/3 cup 3x day not being enough. We started Jackson on 2 1/2 cups 3x day and that was too much- his stools were very soft. I cut back to 2 cups a day and they firmed up nicely. Even though he gained 6 lbs in 3 weeks, per good advice here, I am not cutting back his kibble amount. He has ALOT of loose skin and will grow into it I am sure!!
