    Default Bruno the Bulldog

    Hi everyone!
    We got a english bulldog puppy named Bruno. Hes been really active and is just the best dog a person can ask for. Hes 8 weeks old. So recently hes been having soft stool. We took him to the vet and the vet said hes clear of parasites or anything else. He told us not to worry and that everything is okay with him. Yesterday he had normal stool and then at 12 Am he had soft stool again. We transitioned him slowly and we feed him royal canin. I read previous posts so now we are trying to order a different food for him. We told the vet today about his soft stool again and he said that its okay and to give him the liquid medicine which we give him when he has it. We thought maybe its the amount of food we give him? Hes always begging for more food and running to the closet with the food in it. We feed him 4 times and half a cup each time. The doctor said we should feed him
    Every time hes asking because hes still a puppy and needs his nutrients, etc. Were really worried with his stool and dont know what to do. Please help.

    Welcome to EBN.. Royal Canin is full of grains n so not good. If you’re going to stick with kibbles go with Acana single protein bags. Start with Duck easier to digest. But since he’s a pup, I definitely would start him with a raw diet. You will avoid so many allergies n health issues. Also a raw diet comes out to the same price as a high quality kibble like Acana. Also do buy organic pumpkin pure. It 100% pumpkin so it’s NOT the ones for pies. Give 2 tablespoon 2x a day it will help stop the diarrhea. 2 cups a day for now till you get the diarrhea back on track is ok. But once all is over you might want to up to 3 cups a day. Get some fresh or frozen green beans as a snack or 100% dry liver. Stick to “real” food n never commercial treat like Purina. Mind you simply stay away from purina, Royal Canin, science hill... Stick to real food!

    I like to steam my green beans in a tiny bit of water in the microwave for about 1:50 , then wash them in some cold water to clean them and cool them, before I give it to my bully as a snack. As @helsonwheels has pointed out before, green beans are one of the highest pesticide containing vegetables you can buy, so it's good to wash them off.

    Welcome to EBN.... YES, RC is all fillers and grains, get a better food, raw if you are willing.
    how much are you feeding currently at each meal and how many meals a day?
