SuperG It is also important to understand where the calories are coming from.....
Dogs should get the vast majority of their calories from fat and protein as the calories from carbohydrates ( all those wonderful cheap fillers in most kibble ) are worthless and completely unneeded. Unfortunately the vast majority of dried dog kibble is loaded with carbs ...which dogs simply do not need at all.

Protein and fat is where all the calories should come from....not corn,wheat, barley, rice, potatoes etc.....

Springbrz All foods are not created equal. You may want to look at the K/cal per cup value of your food. Might what to change to a high quality kibble that has more k/cal's per cup.

Example: TOTW High Prairie puppy 364 k/cal per cup
Orijen Large breed puppy 456 k/cal per cup
Fromm Gold large breed puppy 389 k/cal per cup

A food that has more calories per cup will allow you to feed less volume and still get the right caloric value your pup needs. Also, at 7 months you might consider moving to an adult food.

Just my thoughts.

We've definitely been through it with the sensitive tummy. I've wondered if he was like me in that breakfast just isnt that appetizing. Maybe he's not awake enough. Maybe I'll add something appetizing to his breakfast... Or maybe he just isn't a breakfast kind of dog. I've got a few options to try! Slowly, of course, so as not to upset his little tummy even more!

Thanks everyone!

He's on Taste of the Wild puppy formula. I haven't tried toppings yet because I'm trying to limit his intake to one thing and see if we can get the diahrea under control. I think it's starting to get better but I don't want to ruin any progress we're making.

Never freeze dried or raw, have been considering raw as of late. He's had kibble and canned but I've just been giving him dry for now and see if I can regulate some of his other issues.
