    I added pumpkin to Pipers food when I was switching. It made a huge difference for her.

    Try the pumpkin and that might be a little too much food. Try cutting back on the food. Our adult Frenchies only eat 1 cup a day.

    Did you do a gradual food change? It is recommended to gradually change the food over a 7 to 10 day period.
