Thank you! Ill talk with my husband on whether or not we should do Orijen or a raw diet.
Spunky is the perfect word to describe him.
Never wants to sleep besides at night and always wakes up at 6 am. Loves to walk himself by holding onto the leash, Loves being pulled down grassy hills on his tummy, then runs back up the hill and lays back down ready to go at it again. he can sit, shake, lay down, up, stay, and learning roll over and how to say " I love you "
He watches TV too

a little bit more for food , or a lot more for the vet --
I feed a raw diet . For my pups going to homes where they can not or will not , then I recommend Orijen.
There are other kibbles but I am not so "up" on them so will let others answer.
hope the pup is okay -- he looks like spunky monkey - like him

So what should we buy that would be healthy for our dog, yet not so harsh on the wallet? What do you feed your friend?
I want my pup to be healthy!! I want to provide the best for him.
We will go ahead and return the food tonight, what in the meantime should I give him today if he starts to get hungry?

kibble and bits -- nasty ! -- first ingredient is CORN most of corn is now GMO -- recent article Sat Toronto Star implicates gmo's with cancers - Soy also almost all GMO and you can bet in a "cheap" dog food it IS going to be GMO . Corn tends to have a lot of molds - this is not your corn-on-the-cob corn but cattle feed corn (silage) , and a few years back there were problems with some corn and some rice sourced from off shore that had melamine .
This product has burnt sugars (caramel) for colouring (cancer consideration) it has a preservative BHA , it has artificial colours.
Get good quality food and your vet bill will be greatly reduced.
PORK AND BONE MEAL
BEEF TALLOW (PRESERVED WITH BHA)
CHICKEN BY-PRODUCT MEAL
TITANIUM DIOXIDE (colour)
MINERALS (ferrous sulphate, zinc oxide, manganous oxide, copper sulphate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite)
VITAMINS (vitamin E, vitamin A, niacin, d-calcium pantothenate, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin D3, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12)

It was just kibbles and bits for puppies. we got it at a grocery store.. last time we bought him puppy food it was a way smaller bag and we got it from an actual pet store.
Yes we are definitely returning it regardless, well just use the money to buy the same brand we did before.. he never had problems with that one.
The only time he has ever had runny poo, was when he snuck sipped my coffee.
Im assuming he is feeling a little better, he is up and trying to chew my laptop case!

do you think you want to return the bag of kibble just in case?
just tell them the dog was puking and had diarrhea after trying it so you don't want to take any chances.
they'll exchange the bag (at least they should)
what was it anyway? maybe a better brand can be recommended

Hope puppy feels better quickly..!!

He has been drinking more than he was this morning which is a good thing. You can tell he doesn't want to but he is..
Ill go ahead and check the bag, hopefully its not because of mold! We changed his appointment for today at 6 as well..
My husband is going to grab some pumpkin on the way home from work. He has the car otherwise I would myself.

I get the Libby's brand pumpkin....there are two kinds that I have seen. Make sure you get the one that says 100%pure. The only ingredient it will list is pumpkin. The bile may be due to the acid in his tummy because he hasn't eaten anything. Vomiting and watery poop can cause dehydration....the puppy definitely needs to drink or receive fluids. Again, others are more experienced but this is what I learned when our puppy was sick. Very important.

sometimes when food is bagged at too high a temperature the sealed bag will have moisture , heat and dark , the outer perimeter and top of the food will be loose kibble . Split open the bag and you will have a clump of food with a musty smell.
There was one company that had several of these , recalls.
