    Fromm foods has just come out with a new flavor - Grain-Free Pork & Peas Recipe. I just ordered a bag for my girl Emma. My boys are on Fromm Beef Fritattta. Emma does ok on the Beef Fritatta but I think she'll do better on the new Pork. Personally from what I hear I'd stay away from Royal Canine and Science Diet. Vets are notorious for pushing these brands. They have their place for dogs but it's not one of the better foods for Bulldogs.

    Here's a link to EBN's dog food ratings. I've learned so much about dog food in the last two years, it's not all created equal or even close. Dog Food Ratings

    to EBN too.

    I've started to home cook and so the veggies and fruit I've been using are all of the following:-

    peas
    carrots
    green beans
    kidney beans
    black beans
    fresh spinach
    cauliflower
    broccoli
    blueberries
    strawberries
    fresh banana
    apple


    Not all at once but a combination of those ..... you can also look at the vegas stew to see if that would work for you to add to the kibble. It had great results for @Libra926

    ok well there are several foods you can get for your diet boy that dont say their diet foods. blue buffalo does have a wilderness healthy weight food and the freedom should be ok. wellness core has a reduced fat turkey recipe that should fit the bill. i was going to say natures variety instinct limited ingredient formulas should help or pure vita grain free bison, salmon, or turkey. id look for something lower in fat and more fiber to help fill them up. cutting back portions and adding green beans or other veggies and fruit is good to. i also thought maybe just cutting back what they are on and maybe a bit of canned pumpkin for fiber to help fill them up. @Shahster

I know others here have much more experience so hopefully you will hear from them.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!
    this is the formula I feed my boys and Goldie!!! No grain, no chicken, all natural.
