    Honestly, it's such a relief not seeing him grunt for several minutes trying to eliminate the foulest smelling ... well, you get the idea ...

    Oh and thanks Modern Femme for pointing out that EB's are alergic to chicken...and thanks for everyone else here who was so high on Fromm Pork and Peas...it's good stuff!

    Are ALL EB's allergic to chicken? And what are possible signs or allergies... besides itching?

    No, I don't think so. Ace is OEB and has no problem with chicken other than he would probably like to have more.

    Sheldon doesn't seem to have a problem with chicken either other than like Ace he would like more. Sometimes we grill chicken and pull a piece apart into shreds and use it for treats for him.

I mean we do it as calorie counters on our food but I didn't realize I needed to for him until I actually did start reading the labels and realized as I looked the ingredients up on the internet one by one that just because a food "SAYS" its nutritional doesn't mean it is.

    Not ALL bulldogs are allergic to chicken Like people, all dogs are different. What might effect one will probably not effect another.

    My Otis is sensitive to beef. He also doesn't tolerate cherries very well either. I think my Tanker is sensitive to fish. He broke out in horrible hotspots after eating a couple days of Earthborn Coastal Catch. He does fine with beef and pork. But pork makes my Athena dig at her feet. None of my dogs have any sensitivities to chicken.

    For me, her name was Abby

    This is a topic me and a friend of mine have been battling with for over a month now. We have been doing comparison analysis of the ingredients of all the high quality foods but have not made our final decisions just yet. We have narrowed our search down to three right now so we will see. Good luck on your endeavor and wishing you great success!!

    Sad to say ... but I will put my hand up and say that I too was a Beneful feeder because I thought it was a good choice of food!! Now of course I know better and am a HUGE From supporter!!!

    I have started to do home cooking too in the last few months .. and so now I feed half fromm and half home cooked to them all. They love it and I get a lot of satisfaction feeding them!!!

    Feeding him NVI Chicken Meal resulted in black, soft-serve poop that smells God aweful. Also, red face and watery eyes.
    These problems have gone away since feeding him Fromm Pork and Peas.

    The thing is, Walley-Bubba was raised on EVO Turkey and Chicken since he was weaned and never showed any of the issues I previously descried although his poop always smelled apalling. But then EVO was recalled (dern P&G) and so we had no choice but to get something else. The NVI Chicken Meal was suggested by several sources and OK'd here too. But the symptoms mentioned previously became more and more apparent as time passed. So we tried the Fromm Pork and Peas with no Salmon oil and no vitamins and with no water (dry). It's amazing to see the difference in his poop which now is always firm and has a light brown colour and hardly smells at all. He still gets a pink face when excited (I guess that's normal with a white faced bulldog) and the tear stains are still far too noticible although his eyes are clearer and the folds are dry so hopefull time will improve that. His coat is also a little smoother without the rough texture he had before and his ears are so soft with no wax anymore too. Hope that helps.

    ps forgot to mention, even after giving him his monthly Trifexis, which always caused soft stool, I was so pleased to note that his poop remains consistently firm and odorless more or less.

    That's wonderful Sheldon is pretty regular he goes out at 7:30 again between 9:30 and 10 AM and then he is in most of the day goes out again about four we feed him at 6PM then he goes out at 9:30 and again at 11 and we are in for the night and of course my kids take him out to the pool yard (its fenced) to play so we don't have to have him leashed and he can stretch and play

    Love has a name and its name is Sheldon!!!<3
