Food Question

    So I know there are a million and one threads about food, but I couldn't really find an answer to my specific question(s).

    I have been feeding my XL AmBully Blue Large Breed Puppy Chicken and Brown Rice recipe. He likes the food and I don't have any problems with getting him to eat, but he will sometimes have gas and runny stools (not all the time, but on occasion). He also has been scratching himself quite a bit lately. Will switching to a grain free formula...like Blue Wilderness Chicken help? Raw isn't really an option for me as I don't really have the storage space or a good place to feed it to him.

    I've also seen people say not to feed Large Breed, but that was in the APBT section and not the Bully section. If my pup is true to his pedigree, he will likely be around 100 pounds...I assumed that constituted a large breed. I certainly don't want to give him hip dysplacia.

    Also...completely off-topic...he gets the hiccups ALL the time...is that normal?

    Thanks!!!

    If you want to switch, I'd suggest something that is grain free and also fish based for protein. With these you will have less chances of allergies from food as grains and chicken seem to be the most common instigators.

    As for the large breed, I don't find it necessary but I doubt it would hurt him so make your own choice there.
