Crackerjill This post was super helpful! We tried transitioning Sandor to the BB and he got terrible diarrhea. We cut it out, switched to chicken and rice with pumpkin for a few days. Slowly phasing him back to the food the Breeder was using. It was comforting to read this and know we aren't the only ones who had this issue!

magster33 Agreed... I was under the impression that it's one of the best brands... Have a friend who swears by it too (although his pup is not a German Shepherd). Lesson learned!

Diarrhea - food switch or something serious? Please help!

I seriously can't believe how many ppl are having issues with BB. I'm not a huge fan of BB, but I feel like there has been about 5 posts like this one in the past two days..

This is not making me feel any better about this brand of dog food.

Nikitta I had no good results on BB. Jas quit eating and Xerxes was sick a lot. I've had good results with Natures Balance and I have the same problem; they don't sell it around here. I have to order it on-line.

Heidigsd Glad to hear she is doing better!

magster33 You were all correct... cut out the BB, added some pumpkin to the Fromm, and within 24 hours her stool was back to normal! Thanks again; this site really is helpful

VanBuren shepherds BB is horrible on a German Shepherd's digestive system. It should come with a warning label that says: NOT INTENDED TO BE USED WITH GERMAN SHEPHERDS! Lol

Diarrhea - food switch or something serious? Please help!

I feed the puppy in pink bag. I like the protein/fat better. The calcium is what you need to watch but the LBP and puppy are almost similar and under 1.5%. My puppy loves pumpkin too in her food.

My puppy is 11 weeks I feed her 1 cup 3xday sometimes she will pick at one or two meals other times cleans her bowl wanting more. Which is mostly always dinner.
