My Sting loves Bark At the Moon. I switched him over to that when WolfKing wasn't available. It is the first food I have had to measure out for him or he'd eat the whole bag and look it If you want to use an adult food for your puppy, that may work better as it is small pieces.

Thanks for the link. I read through the symptoms and i don't think she had any of them. She hadn't been getting skinnier,or the colored stool

Yellow or green poop? Does not sound healthy at all...

When my pup was 4 months old she had yellow diarrhea, and food switching didn't help... I took her to the vet turned out she had giargia, its a type of parasite very common for puppies. If you keep this up, you will have a malnorished puppy and you will waste all that money trying all different dog food. Your best bet is taking him to the vet as soon as possible. Your pups is growing and MUST have proper nutrition even more than adult dog..Hope he gets well soon

Tristan's gained a few lbs., I can tell! I haven't weighed him but we brought him in shortly after he was dx'ed with a murmur because he was losing weight and his nose was dripping constantly. It turned out his heart had enlarged and he was having chest congestion (congestive heart failure)
Anyway, we did some research and found a kibble made with no added salt, and the only one we could find was Solid Gold!
He LOVES it, and he's regained what he'd lost. We have cut his food back a tad because he'd pudge right up, I'm sure!

We recommend Solid Gold Wee bits to adopters, who adopt small breeds from us.

Yes.
But if you fried it then rinse it well with very hot water to remove more grease.

Wait, i didn't say she had yellow and green poop.she mostly has brown poop with an occasional dark green. Is that really that bad? And i don't know if she is malnourished much or at all. She is a little skinny, but I'm not feeding her as much as i could be. she ways 26 lbs. And continues to gain. So i would hope she's not malnourished, i just want her to have nice dry poos all of the time

Can you please explain better what to buy and how to prepare all of it? Like how to twice cook the riceand how what kind of meat and how you would prepare it. That would be awesome, thank you. I had her tested for parasites a few months ago but i guess I'll do it again.

Thanks again
Not healthy...if she is not malnorished now she will be with all the diarrhea that she is having. Just take her to the vet stop experimenting food on her. Learn from my experience and do the right thing for your pup.
