Homers Mom:
HELP!!!!!!!  What does everyone feed there OEM puppy?  I am the PROUD new owner of a 4 month male Mastiff named Homer.  I usually use Eukanuba but no where around here sells large breed formula.  I have a breeder locally I called and aske dher what she feed.  She recommended Diamond.  So I bought Diamond Lamb and Rice Large Breed puppy.  Its been over a week now since we switched and his stools still are not firm.  Plus....just today since 1pm he has pooped 6 times!  Its now only 7:30!  It seems to run right thru him or do OEM just poop this much???  Ha ha  I used to own a Newfie and he didn;t this much!  So any food advice is appreciated!

Homers Mom:
Pics of Homer.  He is about 17-18 weeks of age now.  I will get more pics soon!

This is assuming you live in the US [which i do not]... Back To Basics is a food made specifically for OEMs.  It don't know if its sold everywhere, but I guess its worth checking.  Just be thankful that you live in the States, your food is much better than ours is in Canada!!

Homers Mom:
Thanks for all the replies.  I was on here for two hours last night reading food questions!  Alot of the foods they mention are not even sold around here.  I have to drive almost a hour just to get foods like Purina Pro Plan, Eukanuba, Diamond, Royal Cannin and Science Diet which I hate Science Diet.  I try not to buy anything that has the first ingredient as meal or by-product.  I want a meat listed first!  Royal Cannin seems to be getting popular around here and I have heard of Eagle, I think there is one place who sells it.  I used to love Eukanuba, but since Iams sells at WalMart now and was bought out I feel the same, its not as good.  Thats where I have started looking again!  My friend uses ProPlan Giant on her Great Dane...any suggestions there?
