    Hi – looks like your pup is a bully breed – so is our boxer we recently rescued. When we picked him up they said he had stress diarrhea – and had him on some prescription GI food. Didn’t help. So moved him to a grain free TOTW – better. Then switched to TOTW fish based
    but both Duke and our Jack Russell have been eating grass. Lots of it. So after doing some research, found out often BULLY BREEDS are sensitive to Peas!

    so found Natural Balance limited ingredient – grain free with kangaroo – and no peas. And only 330kcal/cup so they get the volume to satisfy them. IT WORKED no more grass eating for them both. I did notice that the review of the food isn’t that good, but it is agreeing with my boys so until I can find another grain and pea free with a unique protein (don’t like chicken or beef) this is what they will eat. And they do love it…..

    good luck. We had a boxer in the past with megaesophagus – had to feed him with a raised bowl with the food in a slurry. Then he had to sit and I rubbed his chest and chin until he “burped”. Really stopped the vomiting.
