good deal. it's just a little different being able to see your dogs structure. a lot of times, and not to say this to offend anyone, but what we think is overweight and what is actually overweight in a dog can be confused. a nice fat puppy is fine, but as dogs get older their form should be more defined, especially if they are well fed and active. But all in all, I think it will help your situation to be able to get input on that.

But like lisa said, those companies just want you to run out faster, it's a business after all

no you need the 500mg! I am sorry I thought you read the dosage section. I would do 750mg per dose. So just give 3-250 mg per dose. You should have enough with what you bought and I would do it for 7 days. Make sure to give it with food so right before you feed. Also the pills are very bitter so make sure you put them like in a treat.
When my dogs see the bottle come out they lock thier jaws! lmao

Normally you worry about that with puppies. If your dog has a reaction to any drug you will obvious signs the dog is not doing well maybe even seizures. It is rare but something you need to be a where of when giving your dog any antibiotic. Sometimes this medication will make the dog throw up but that is why you have to give it with food or it will give them an upset stomach. A reaction is obvious signs like cannot balance, keeps falling down, seizures. Like I said really low risk but it is something every owner should know.

IMO he doesn't have much of the mastiff traits to him. He looks like he's right on track weight wise. I think if your dog is active, its harder for us to know if we're overfeeding because you normally associate overfeeding with an obese dog, but Dobbs looks to be healthy, as far as weight goes. I would try and reduce the feed to 1.5 cups x2 per day, and maintain a schedule when feeding, and if it doesnt get better then go to the vet. JMO

Thx allot! I was worried he was under weight cuz of the diarreha. This is my 3rd apbt and just seems like i am always running into problems or bad luck with this breed. I had a blue fawn last and i had to put her down from tumors. Just really want this one to work out for me and my family so i am extremely nervous.

I appreciate all of you replying to my posts so quickly. Really like this forum so far.

The stress of a new home could be adding to the problem too. When I worked at a bording kennel seems like every dog in there would get the poops when they visit.

very handsome boy! To me he looks a little heavy, I like to see more tuck on the waist of the dog. reducing his food is a good idea but you do not want to take off too much at once. Also we cannot say how many pounds to take off because every dog is different. What I would recommend is backing off slowly so the dog does not feel starving. If you take off a full cup like mentioned above your dog could could start destructive behaviors then you have new problems. I have seen ppl put dogs on too much of a reduction to come home and find the house trashed.

Take off a 1/4 cup at a time. So start feeding 2.25 cups 2 x a day for this week then next week feed 2 cups 2x a day then keep him on that for a few weeks and see if you notice a change in his appearance or take him the vet and weight him. You do is not obese just a little Pudgy even for a pet. After you have had him on 2 cup for a while if he still looks over weight then you can go another 1/4. I feed my 36 pound dog 3 cups a day, a bigger dog could use more food but again determine that by looking at the dog. I also have a 55 pound dog who eats 5 cups and she still is too skinny. again each dog is different. Hope that helps, again he is very handsome!!

Well i ordered the metronidazole and paid for overnight shipping but as usual it wont be here till monday. Dont know why i always pay for overnight it never actually gets here overnight.

Anyway i stopped the dog food and started him on cooked chicken and rice yesterday. Today i did cooked hamburger and rice. He is pooping less but its still diarrhea. I just wish those pills would get here so i can start that and see what happens.

I have noticed that he has nearly no gas anymore. On the dog food he had really bad gas. So hopefully i am onto something here.

Oh and i am only feeding him about 2 cups of the cooked food.

Thank you for the nice comments! Like i said i am lucky i have this dog to begin with so i really just want the best for him.
