Hey everyone I have recently purchased my bulky puppy she's so cute! I've had her for 5 days and she's doing we'll. the breeder had her on royal canin and I'm slowly changing her to Orijen puppy. She doesn't eat much less that 2 cups a day but she poops around 7 or more times a day! They aren't soft but not hard just wondering if this is normal? She's very active and drinks lots of water. Any help appreciated
For some reason your replies are showing as comments, but if she's just over 8 wks old...I would try cutting back on her food a bit. 2 cups a day seems like too much for a puppy that young. I would start with 1/4-1/3 cup 3x a day. Also, Orijen is a more rich food and you don't need to feed as much as the Royal Canin
When we took her to the vet for her checkup he said to have food available at all times so she can help herself. So should I just feed her 3 times a day? I tried that at the start and she was always sniffing around like she was starving lol
I'm sure other people on here can give you great advice as well, but I prefer to have her on a schedule rather then free-feeding.
Everyone wants to kiss a bullie
I concur scheduled feedings, help scheduled potty breaks
Ok cool thanks everyone will try scheduled feedings and see how she goes. She's a bit better today only went 3 times and they were solid.
Franklin was. 5 - 6 times a day when I had him on blue buffalo basics Turkey & potato grain free now I switched him to blue buffalo wilderness salmon an only. twice a day maybe maybe 3 times at the most an I feed them four times a day an I wouldn't free feed because if bullies grow faster then they're supposed to their growth plates won't a line right an you can get hip dysplasia an they say It's better to feed a couple times a day then once or twice franklin is 6 months old an I feed him 2 1/2 cups a day I'm starting to cut back to 2 cups because I changed his food to a 6 star instead of a four star so he doesn't need as much an it might be your feeding grain an its not agreeing with her
