    Default Advice on which food to transition to....

    Just asking a bit of advice from the seasoned English bully owners out there. I had a bulldog years ago, but unfortunately, the food I used to use is no longer available. Just purchased an 8 week puppy and the owner had the puppies on Royal Canine Bulldog food. I read up on this and have received negative feedback on this food regarding its fillers and ingredients. It was encouraged that I transition to a more quality food slowly. Seeking suggestions on which is the best food to transition to. I have received suggestions such as Blue Buffalo, Innova, and Wellness. Your input is greatly appreciated!

    to EBN.... many here have had great results with the Fromm grain free line for adults and the puppy (pink bag, I forget the name of it)! Others like Natures Variety, Nature Balance, Wellness Core, Orejin (spelling), Taste of the Wild are some that I can think of .

    I feed Fromm cause it is grain free, sourced and made in the USA and you can easily switch flavors without being concerned about a transition period.

    @Calilor, the "best" food for your bully will be the one he responds the best to. Sorry for such a vague answer! Lots of trial and error when transitioning our bullies to a kibble. All the ones Christine mentioned above are great brands. Currently I have mine on Wellness Core which is a grain-free kibble but I also home-cook for them (I alternate between the two every few months).

    Did you check the food ratings section on our site?
