Our almost 5 month-year-old puppy is always hungry. I realize this may be normal puppy behavior but his constant hunger has increased recently. We feed him Fromm Large Breed Puppy food on a strict…Continue

When we got our puppy at 8 weeks, we were told he was held the most in the litter. He begged everyone to pick him up. They described his personality as a calm puppy that just went with the flow and…Continue

"The thing is that when you study nutrition and you know what is or isn't in food, you tend to make choices based on that instead of on how it tastes. Not that taste isn't important, but you are mindful first of "I need some lean…"

"I feel like I should have known this, but I did not. So thanks! Nutrition is hard. For dogs and people too. I think if I just ate whole, fresh food I would probably do better. But all of that processed junk just tastes so good."

"Well, there's chicken and there's chicken, lol. Dark meat chicken contains more than twice the fat of white meat chicken for the same size portion- a 3.5 oz portion of white meat chicken contains 4.5 grams total fat compared to 9.7 grams…"

"Okay, dumb question. If the cloudstar treats (autocorrect keeps wanting to make that cloister - that's not right at all!) only contain chicken, how is it possible for them to have so much more fat? What are they sneaking in there?  Now…"

"I break up the treats at home way in advance of class, lol. :) The Cloudstar treats are okay, but they are much higher in fat than Purebites, and high fat percentages can contribute to loose stool and diarrhea. Chicken Purebites contains…"

Stacy replied to Josh Adams's discussion Hunger / diarrhea issues
"I like the cloudstar rogue treats. They are just meat and some preservatives. Pure bites are great, but at training class they're really too big to just pop a bite in their mouth and keep going. And when I try to break them up it kind of works…"

"I wouldn't switch the kibble again at this point, I think it would complicate matters. Down the road, I'd consider an LID formula if the digestive issues continue. But give the Proviable a little more time to have an effect. "

Josh Adams replied to Josh Adams's discussion Hunger / diarrhea issues
"We will try the Purebites. I also know Cloudstar makes grain free chewy treats as well. Do you think we should switch to a grain free kibble? We just switched him to Fromm LBP Gold which is not grain free. He likes it and his stools are not always…"

"Liver does cause loose stool in some dogs, and the tricky trainers contain flour and other ingredients that may be making matters worse. Try Pure Bites plain chicken or turkey treats, they are the best for sensitive stomachs. Probiotics help to…"

"Update: Today was day 3 of the Proviable DC and he still has very soft stool after lunch and after dinner. The morning stool is well formed. Does it take time for it to work in their systems? We cut back his treats to only the Cloud Star Chewy…"

"Onions are extremely toxic to dogs! They cause a fatal blood disorder called Heinz Body anemia, also known as hemolytic anemia. You must never give your dog anything that contains onions in any quantity. The fat content can also be problematic…"

"Great! Thank you. Another question I had was regarding chicken stock. We make our own but it has onions in it (we also use the skins when making the broth). Is this okay to give in small quantities (ice cube size) or should we make separate…"

"If you do decide to feed a raw diet to a young puppy, I would stay with a commercial raw product that contains all of the nutrients that a growing puppy needs, and none of the bactera that can be especially dangerous for an immature immune system.…"

"He's not too young for bananas, and they should not make the diarrhea worse.  Just use them sparingly. And the yogurt contains probiotics, which can only help. :) "

"I felt the same Josh. didn't think I could handle raw...I found feeding raw extremely intimidating at first, so I took small steps.  Now my two girls are on full raw.  If you ever need any help in regards to raw you can PM me. or ask…"

"Hi Karen, thanks as always. Day 1 of Proviable, fingers crossed!  We thought of adjusting to two meals per day as well to see if that helps. We're thinking of keeping breakfast at 7 AM but moving dinner to 5 PM instead of 4 PM. He…"
