    Question Cooking food for English Bulldogs?

    Hi. My baby boy has a food allergy & yeast infection (just recently) so then, I have stopped giving him dry food as my Vet recommendation. He told me to stop giving him Pedigree & switch to other brandz the problem is, there's only 3 brands of dog food sell here in Cambodia. Pedigree, ANF & Royal Canin. The latter one I have to buy from the Vet & the price is kinda way over. Right now, I'm making home cooked meal for rocky. I steamed carrot, green beans, celery & lettuce (alternate day by day) then boil either chicken or pork meat & mixed with little rice & oatmeal. Sometimes I make pasta mixed with little cheese just to add a flavor as I don't put salt on his food. I gave him Vita-Tabs too. I just want to know if there's anybody knows other recipe with less grains & also need some help for his yeast problem. My Vet (he's French) isn't that good as you see but we got no other option because the other local vets doesn't know the bulldog breed because it is not common it in here. HELPPPPPP.....

    I do not cook for my bully, but I would remove the grains to see if that helps with his allergy.

    Can you find Salmon Oil or fish oil anywhere? This could help his skin.

    I think someone else mentioned an oil that kills yeast that you could put on after bathing. Was it coconut oil?

    I cook for my bullies. I usually add it to their kibble. The Good Food Cookbook for Dogs by Donna Twichell Roberts has alot of easy recipes. I just omit the grains if they are part of the recipe. In my opinion, its much better than feeding the foods you mentioned.

    Pure Coconut oil is really good for killing yeast.

    I dont cook for my boys but if you only have those 3 choices then I would definitely keep making your own food. I agree try to cut out the grains to see if that helps to clear up the problem also.

    @Libra926 posted a video recently about the stew she makes for her bully! It would be in the photo and video forum! Good luck!

    What about delivery? Is that an option for you? To have a good quality food delivered to your home?

    @bullmama: Fish oil I saw they sell here is for human. I got him a Lipiderm gel capsules from Petsmart. The vet said, I can give rocky ocean or sea fish 2-3 times per week. CocOnut oil? That's awesome! I have it home-made cuz I'm using it as a hair treatment. I'm gonna give it a try & let u guys know

    @NikkiSchoolcraft: was the recipe available online too?

    Im not sure if the recipes in that book are online. I know the book is pretty cheap...I think i paid $12.00 and it also has recioes for treats. I add fish oil to their breakfast...the same as I use every morning. It has made a huge difference in their skin.
