    Sounds like he has an upset tummy... Any chance he ate or swallowed something he should not have? Is he drinking water?

    Relax, not so fast. Try mixing a little water with his food to switch it up. If he's pooping and not throwing up the chance of blockage is slight. The rash on his feet could be a sign of allergy or yeast. May considering to change food is a good idea. If he is past 5 months old you can switch to an adult food.

    I worry anytime my bulldogs refuse to eat- especially if they usually do with gusto. Sometimes if they have an upset tummy or ate something ( even something small ) or if they are not feeling well, they refuse to eat. You may want to check the temperature (rectally, should be between 99-101) just to be sure.

    Hi there! I had the same issues with Brutus at about 7 months with eating. He would lick his paws and basically eat them! His coat wasnt great and his eyess were constantly bloodsshot! We read the food reccomendations here on EBN and noticed we were feeding a 3-4 rating food We switched him to Fromm isntantly after about 2-3 week transitiion and havent looked back! He is doing amazing on it! They ahave a vareity of diff flavors and no need to slow switch between Fromm Flavors (if he getss bored quick) they also have good toppers to put on top of the dry food! Great ingredients and good all stages food for him! You aalso have to feed lesss than other brands b/c there arent any fillers or by products )
