Here For Winston

    Hello, my name is Bridgaline (pronounced Bridge-a-lean). Usually just go by Bridge. My fur baby's name is Winston he is currently 9 months old. He is a Blue Nose pit. He is a pure breed pit. I've had him since he was 3 months old. My boyfriend and I traveled from Arizona to New Jersey with him and his brother when they were 3 months old. I no longer have his brother so its just Winston. (Don't worry my best friend currently had his brother). We now reside in Pennsylvania. I've had him for about 6 months and he is the love of my life. He is the first dog I have ever had, and honestly he is more like a child than a dog. We had had a lot of issues since moving him to Pennsylvania. For one he is allergic to grass, which in PA there is a lot of. We have it under control for the most part with allergy pills. He was also born with a hernia, which will be removed soon. We also went through a period of time where he suffered from acne. Which he still gets a pimple every now and again. Right now we are struggling to find a Grain Free food that won't mess with his tummy and won't mess with our noses. We have tried Blue Buffalo Wilderness (the gas and diarrhea were unbearable), Rachael Ray's Zero Grain (the opposite results as the Blue Buffalo, he was clogged up for a week), Crave (which he didn't seem to mind, but their price was a little too much for us), Blue Buffalo Texas BBQ (same results as the Wilderness), Purina Beyond (both Beef and Chicken which he does really good on but he usually doesn't care for it. He is currently on it), and finally Nutro MAX (which he really likes, and I was planning on switching him to but it seems to have too many fillers so I am unsure now). So that is us in a nutshell. A lot of problems.

    My first thought is that is a LOT of food changes for such a young dog. It can take well over a month to really see a difference in them after changing the food, especially if they’re prone to allergies or GI issues. I would just pick one high-quality diet, ideally with a novel protein and no known allergens, and slowly transition then stick to it for about 8 weeks.
