Lol
I feel like a @$$ now because I know that. I don't know what I was thinking. So I guess I'm suggesting both of them now.

I switched from Nutures Variety to Before Grain (Made by Canidae). Like both, NV a lilttle more. Before Grain is easier to get but if i start having them problems I will switch back. So i guess I'm suggesting NV.
Did you hear anything bad about Before Grain?

I feed Before Grain which is made by Merrick. My pup is doing great on it, haven't had any problem and he loves it(he also loves dirt, grass, and his poop so I guess that doesn't mean anything). But no problem, skin and coat has gotten better since being one it and no off and on runny stool anymore.

If your puppy like treats I would crush a few up and sprinkle it over the food. That what my cousin does to get his puppy to eat, she's not yet use to eating on a schedule because of how the byb he got her from was feeding her. This works for him.

Its just something puppies do when they are around it for too long. I heard its so they don't have to be near it. My vet told me that it won't make them sick as long as its their own, will if its another dog's though. Should try to prevent it if possible.

They smell! There's my opinion. :) I have seen the smaller, thinner "steer pizzle sticks," too. I don't usually buy them (either steer or bull) because they are pretty expensive and don't last that long, and I also worry about possible GI tract blockages. I usually give RMBs. Although Boo...

Ruger now has a bigger bowl so one feeding just cover the bottom, plus I tried the ball in the bowl thing. Both are helping, I hear way more chewing.
I boil plain chicken breast and chop them up into small pieces. I don't see a problem with adding things to kibble. It didn't upset my pup's stomach.

Rolex got one a week, until I found out that they are a chopped off bull penis :yucky: now I'm not a fan. :oops: Lol. I felt bad buying it after finding out what it was, being as though I'm a man and Ruger is too. I felt like we were supporting a John Bobbitt case. I got over it though because Ruge...

Ruger hasn't had any problem with them. I would think its just like anything else, it agrees with some dogs and doesn't with others.

I would be curious to know as well. My female inhales everything I feed her too. X2 My 4 month old pup swallows his kibble and training treats whole. Both very small, don’t seem healthy though. He chews all larger treats and the chicken I mix into his food occasionally, but when I’m not hand feedin...
