Re: Should I switch food?
Hi @NikkiSchoolcraft - I also use Nature's Variety Instinct formulas for Linus and Truman, mostly because Linus suffered from itching, ear infections, interdigital cysts because I was feeding him junk. The food is made so you can rotate all of the proteins within the Nature's Variety Instinct family - and there's a bunch to choose from - however, English Bulldogs, being the sensitive souls they are tend to do better on one protein than another. We've had good luck with the Nature's Variety Instinct Turkey and Duck formula. We've tried Rabbit, Salmon, and Chicken too but they do best on the Turkey and Duck. They also make accompanying treats you can buy with them - grain free, of course. The main thing that distinguishes Nature's Variety Instinct from other grain free foods is that is doesn't have potatoes or sweet potatoes as a main ingredient and I found the presence of those two ingredients in most grain free foods was increasing the amount of yeast I was seeing on Linus.
