The breader that sold me the pup said he was feeding him Nutra-Nugget adult. 0A30C6BA-0103-427D-BF8E-2EC775D8B294.jpegI’m wondering if that’s because that what he was feeding the momma and wanted to save money by not buying the right puppy food. My pup is about 10 weeks old and has normal stools. Should I switch or just leave it? Is he missing out on certain nutrients from puppy foods? Like I said, he’s fine as far and I can tell.

I looked this up on dog food advisor... 3 stars, I would not feed it. Lots of grains and by-products.

if you want a good kibble some of the ones many have great results with are :
Zingature
Fromm
Acana
Orijen
Earthborn Holistic

If you start feeding your pup with quality kibbles, you’ll see less of a vet. I can’t recommend insurance as in Canada it’s all double what you guys pay. Others will fill you in...I personally have a credit card just for the dogs.

I have Nationwide which has helped with my Frenchie as he’s had 3 surgeries in less than a year and they’ve covered 90% of all costs. I haven’t need to use it for Louie yet. But some people have a credit card just to use for vet bills. In my case, that wouldn’t have worked so I’m thankful I have the insurance.

The Nutra Nuggets Lamb Meal and Rice is certified for mature dogs only, so another reason not to use it. The beef and Performance formulas are rated suitable for all life stages, but you might as well switch to a better brand as mentioned.

If you want to get pet insurance, get it now, as later on they will add more and more pre-existing conditions that are excluded since they have your vet send them your dog's veterinary file. eg. if your dog has an ear infection they will exclude any ear infections for a year . Some people do well with pet insurance, I got my dog as an elderly rescue so there were too many exclusions so I didn't bother getting it.

There is an article under ‘bulldog information’. ‘Why does my puppy have diarrhea’. It has a chart you can use for measurements
