    I have an 6 year old English Bulldog and we are having some gas and flem problems with his current food and are looking to switch, and I was just wondering if any of you use any of the following foods that we are considering.

    Blue Buffalo - Large Breed Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe

    Dick Van Patten's - LAMB MEAL & BROWN RICE FORMULA LARGE BREED BITES

    Eukanuba - Naturally Wild North Atlantic Salmon & Rice Dry or Turkey & Multi Grain or New Zealand Venison & Potato

    He also has some allegories that some times cause spots on his skin and itching.

    Any insight would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    I have a english bulldog also...just turned 1 yr old in September. We feed him Purina Beneful and he has some serious gas problems. I mean he will fucking run you out of the room.


    Idk...maybe we should switch foods too.

    Which formula are you feeding? She is currently on the Wetlands but I was thinking of changing it up a bit. The Bison one is probably next.

    My dog and cats are on taste of the wild and their fur is super soft...it is grain free and much better for the dogs.

    The other dogs in my house east Canidae, another great food.

    we tried the wetlands one and our german shepherd hated it and wouldnt even eat it. So we switched to the bison one and both of them love it.

    Cool...my dog will eat anything. I had her on the samples when I ran out over the holiday and they didn't have any more instock. I think the Bison formula has more Protein which is good for my dog.

    Toyota all weather floor mats. Mag light that clunks around in the jack compartment. Dog hair. Dog drool on the windows.
    I have a six year old English bulldog as well. I feed her Purina dog chow. She has some gas, but gas is associated with the breed. I have played with the idea of switching foods. But that might be messy. I know you have to switch them slowly. Add a little of the new food to the old food, increasing the new food to old food ratio slowly. otherwise the dog might get a bad case of diarrhea,

    yeah it made a huge difference when we switched them to it. The shepherds coat got really smooth and our schnauzers skin allergies cleared up right away.

    yeah it takes about 7-14 days of mixing it before you will be ok. Just start with like 25/75 than a few days later 50/50 and a few more 75/25 and so on. Usually about 2 weeks and u will have no prob.
