Don't hate Blue or dissuade from it, just think there's better foods at better values out there that don't come with the disproportionate tendency for digestive issues and overly pushy sales reps).

I've been feeding BB for about 5 years... before I'd even heard of it, haha. I stumbled upon it when looking for a higher quality food that Samantha would tolerate. I picked it based upon ingredients having now knowledge of the brand name at the time. We've currently feed the Wilderness Salmon blend.

It was the first high quality food that Samantha enjoyed. It has helped her allergies quite a bit and it did not upset her belly like other foods did. She snubbed her nose at other brands. Mulligan has been eating it since he came home and is also doing great. I know several dogs that are now eating it with success all around.

With that said.... I have read a lot on here of people having problems. We do not, thus I stick with what works. After a several month slow switch from one food to another I'm still sticking with the winner, haha. I've looked into switching to another brand because I am also not a fan of the recent (last few years) "commercialization" of the brand. I always stop because I'm afraid of re-visiting the tummy upsets of the past. I also hate the reps. I went into the pet sore around Christmas and picked up a bag of dog food. As I was looking at other treats (not BB... gasp) a BB rep snuck up on me and kept pestering me. She was very ignorant in her discussion of food/ treats and exceptionally annoying. I left without buying BB treats... which I was planning on getting after looking at the organic display.

End of rant. It has worked very well for us so I stick with it, but completely understand that all dogs are different, and that everyone has to choose what works for their pup.

Why does every body dislike Blue?

Posts have been helpful. Our Cooper has been on BB for a couple weeks now but off and on diarrhea. After reading I'm definitely switching.the worst has been last few days with 2:30 and 5:30 am runs to the yard! Gotta stop! Is it ok to switch back to original food right away? He was on Royal Canine Puppy Max and he was fine but we wanted better quality. Now that I know diarrhea is from BB (tested for worms and all ok) I'd like to go back 100% to RC before trying a new line. Is this ok to do??

If you think about. People have to pick dog food that their dog will do alright on. Just shows you most of Dog food is bad. Food should not give runs/allergies/diarrhea etc.

I'm assuming Cooper is a young pup? If he was doing well on what he came to you on, I would go back to that and stick with it for (at least) six months. RC is a fine, well researched food that will give your pup a solid foundation.

Note: While it is most likely the food change causing the GI upset, I would treat for parasites and worms (these things can go undetected even when present & symptomatic) if things don't improve a fair amount of time after returning to RC.

Why does every body dislike Blue?

Thanks for feedback. We are doing exactly that. I wonder how long it will take after returning him back 100% to RC to see firmer stool? He had all 3 meals RC today and he had 3 poops of which lunch time was firmer but evening one was runny again. As far as deworming, he was on meds for that a couple months ago and we got the all clear this week. His last dose was 5 days ago. Could it also be meds?
