Water pooh after BB adult whitefish with lifebits
Well, I tried switching my pup 18 weeks now over to Blue Buffalo Adult the whitefish with life bits type from Bil-jac. I gave him less than a 1/4 cup BB per serving, he gets 2 1/4 cups total a day of food. So this works our to
1/4 cup BB and roughly 7/8ths of a cup of the bil-jac twice\day.
On the second day, he basically had a faucet coming out of his rear runny poop all of the place and he was also vomiting. It was bad enough that I called the vet thinking he may have parvo. He did not, he was just as active and ready to play as ever and was also drinking plenty of water. Switch him just to bil-jac and the stools were firm again.
I then tried adding in less of the BB about 1/8th cup to see if I could really slowly switch him. That didn't work either. So now I need to think about another food if I'm going to switch him to something better. Wife wants to keep him on the bil-jac but I'm kind've worried about allergies to the corn in it.
Is it worth trying another type of BB formula?
I liked the BB because it is easy to get from petsmart and not terribly expensive. Orijen is only available at some of the smaller stores and from what I've seen quite a bit more expensive.
Thanks for any info.
