|At 8 mos old, it may be time for him to cut back a little. They go through growth spurts just like people do, and sometimes they need more than normal, sometimes less. By "bowl full" what do you mean? At 8 mos old, he should be eating 2 meals a day, with the recommended amount divided up amongst those two meals. Are you sure you are not overfeeding him?
Also, be careful with the Taste of the Wild. At his age, he *may* be out of the woods, but it is not appropriate for ANY growing puppy, despite what they have to say about it being an all life stages food. I'd put him back on Orijen simply because I like the company better, and they have a great large breed puppy formula, and the 6 fresh fish formula is all life stages.
Also, if he's gassy, that may be an indication that the food is upsetting his stomach. Burger King onion rings do me in. I could kill my husband in a dutch oven after eating those suckers. But they also make my tummy feel AWFUL. Perhaps he's having the same problem. Gas is usually a sign of something not agreeing with him, so I'd consider switching because of that as well.
