Thanks so much, does open farms make a dry kibble? If so am I okay just as long as it says for puppy and maybe steer clear of chicken? I didn't see earthborn holistics on chewy?
Earthborn Holistic is there. I just looked at it.

Sooooooooooooooooo Okay Breathe……

Listen, high proteins, chicken, formulas etc etc rule of thumb, “if” you don’t know your dog is allergic, you will NEVER know by avoiding the protein. Like I’ve said, your puppy has recently got off mom’s milk, very rare any puppy will have allergies. Now I’m not saying he won’t but extremely rare. If you see a bit of loose stools doesn’t mean you need to remove that specific protein. Puppies all have loose stools cause they get into everything n sometimes it has nothing to do with food. I always suggest “rotate” the proteins, monitor what happens. Keep a journal if you have too. Rotations, adding veggies, giving eggs, organs etc takes time as everything is new to your puppy. Btw, it might not be the protein in the bag that’s the issue either but another ingredient. You will know what works n not within the first yr of you pup. it’s time consuming for a few months but works.

Aside from the bickering, our members gave you good advice. Most advice is from trail n errors. It works perfectly for some dogs n totally doesn’t for others. Don’t mean the owners don’t know anything. It’s like going to a vet, they give you advice, you try, either it worked or it backfired n made it worst. Why you need to try n eliminate what works n what doesn’t. Just like humans.

I used to feed Open Farm kibble when my bulldog was very young, and she ended up with terrible yeast issues. Then I did switch to raw diet and if I go camping I feed Natures Logic kibble. No more yeast issues.

Good luck with your new puppy.
