    Default Help with foods

    Hi I am new here and I have been reading alot. I am trying to get info before taking Speedy home this week. The Breeder has him on Iams but I seen on here that is not a good food. I am in a wheelchair and on a budget. There is no place that sells Fromm around here and I really dont have the money for it.. I dont have a Costo around here either.. I can get TOTW, Victor or 4health very easy... Which one is better or like which is 1,2, 3... Any help in much appericated... thanks

    I'm pretty sure all three of those are decent foods, but I'll tag @cowsmom to be sure.

    Don't forget you can get Fromm puppy from petflow right to your door. They have awesome treats and toys on clearance all the time too! There is usually a limit on those so I get as many as I can! Coupon code is Englishbulldog to get free shipping over. $49

    Hi and welcome! I'm a very new Bulldog parent, but saw that no one had posted yet. I say look at ingredients and buy the best food you can afford. Maybe cooking "people" food might be an option? We all do the best we can do for our fur-babies. The most important thing is that they are loved and we provide healthcare. I didn't look to link, but read the nutrition section (which you probably already have). I looked for very low grain food. My Vet did say to limit chicken, and I know chicken could be a problem. Don't know why I can't get the italics turned off...oh well. My girl doesn't seem to have a problem with chicken. While this same vet said to look at foods where the protein source is duck, venison, salmon or turkey; the same vet said allergies aren't aggravated by grains . Sounds like you're doing your homework before bringing Speedy home. Post some pics!

    well i dont really like totw or 4 health because of the diamond pet food manufacturing thing but the victor food looks ok. you could try nutrisource grain free or earthborn they are a bit cheaper. @racer. if you need more i can check on some more for you.

    @racer well diamond pet foods has has many troubles with their plant and have had numerous recalls the last one being last year for salmonella. i do not trust this company anymore but there are those here who still feed their foods and have had no trouble. just a personal thing and we all have to decide for ourselves whats ok and whats not.

    oh dear there is no one food or one thing that works for all bullies as there allergies are different with each dog. most here stay away from grains n chicken as bullies seem to not do well with these but it not an exact thing. i would start with no grains and finding a protein that works for your bully then work out from there. interestingly enough sarah seems to do the best with chicken protein so go figure

    Ok,so it's mostly a trial and error process.Could this be because of the type of food the breeder used while pregnant?

    oh i see you are bringing home a puppy well then chicken is mostly what protein puppy food is made of really. honestly i would use what the breeder is using for a bit then when the pup is situated to you and the surroundings which can be very stressful then i would see bout a better food. ill be honest when ur pup is starting out getting a good food can help with things down the road so i would buy the best food you can afford really. do they have blue buffalo around you? its been used before and its pretty widespread as far as being available. are u getting this at tractor supply as they have blue i think.
