    Default Anyone heard of or Used Purina One for Bulldogs

    i have always fed my bulldog Blue Buffalo Basics.. she did fine but it is very expensive about 55 or 60 a large bag.
    One of the nurse or tech at my vet, that they specialize in breeding Bulldogs, told me she breeds frenchys and she uses
    Purina One,, actually from the grocery store for `18.00 a bag.. I was so scared to try it but I did. she seems fine its been a few months
    but I want to make sure she is getting the proper nutrition bulldogs need for all there strange stuff and
    make sure maybe this cant be creating her Red bumps/digital cysts? inbetween her toes lately..
    any advice I would love

    Definetly, Something in the food she is eating could be causing the issues you mention. She is likely allergic to something in it.

    I like to think of it this way: Good food is expensive yes. But not as expensive as the vet bills treating issues caused by bad food.

    With bullies I agree with 'Pay me now, or pay me later' we also use Blue Buffalo Basic's (Salmon) which is the most expensive in their line if you have a local Petsmart, make sure you sign up for their pet perks - I just got 2 coupons for $10 off a $50 purchase - you got it, 2 bags of Blue Buffalo !

    If you compare ingredients, you'll change off of Purina One, REALLY fast. and what people dont always realize, you feed them MORE (per serving) of the inexpensive food (Read the directions on each of the bags)

    I already posted on your other thread in the 'health forum'.... it most likely is the food causing the issues -- ask your vet to do a full blood screen allergy test.
    If Betty was doing well on the Blue... go back to it

    I agree that the first thing you should do is get him off the Purina and see if it's food related. You can try Taste of the Wild (Pacific Stream) that may be a bit less expensive than what you're paying for Blue. The bag is a full 30 pounds and costs just under 50 bucks. Your dog should eat way less too. My small bullys (30 pound range ) get a little over a cup a day. The puppy of course get about twice that. Zelda my 45 pound EB (RIP) ate maybe 1.75 cups per day at the most. Basically, I'd put 6 cups out for 4 dogs and they wouldn't always eat it all. When I moved to this food and started adding ACV to the water, Zelda's allergy problems went away.

    well when it comes to bullies if you find something that works stick with it. blue buffalo is a good food not the best but not the worst. its how your bully does on it. anything that you can buy in the grocery store is crap. id keep him on it for now. if you want to change foods go up not down.

    We did the switch to ToTW Pacific.... but then they had 2 - 3 recalls in a short period of time. so we went back to Blue -

    About those recalls - Since their product - along with MANY others, was made in the same plant as the contaminated stuff, they chose to recall. All of their product tested clean. There was no actual contamination of TOTW. They did it as a safety consideration, not actual bad product.

    If you check recall notices you'll see that at one time or another Blue has been recalled as well.
