    Do you know any of the triggers? A lot of bullies are allergic to Chicken and do not react well to grains. I've been using Taste of the Wild with Bison and Boris has been doing well on it. He has issues with Chicken, Turkey, salmon and potatoes so we've been on an adventure moving him to an adult food that doesn't cause him to react. There are a lot of folks here that like the Fromms 4 star kibble since you can easily switch between the proteins without having to phase them into the new kibble.

    Here's a link to the rating board on EBN:

    Limited ingredient without the ingredients that he is allergic to. Home cooked or raw really is the best. Then you can limit the ingredients the best.

    The Honest Kitchen base mixes are wonderful as well. Human grade food and you control what animal proteins are in it.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Great advice from members above. My guys also have allergies to chicken, salmon, beef and grains. We are currently feeding them Fromm's Lamb and Lentil and some home cooked. It can be a frustrating process of trying to find a good quality food and one that they tolerate, and it's really just trial and error until you find the right one for your dog.
    Also adding supplements that boost the immune system helps with allergy symptoms, I add 2 Tbsp's of plain yogurt to their morning kibble everyday for the Probiotics, which is good for digestion and for gut flora, which helps boost the immune system, I also add 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar to their evening kibble everyday along with 1 tsp. of Kelp.
    Using medications and steroids only work as long as you are on them, and they have lots of side effects, and should only be used in severe reactions, and then only short term. Using natural supplements don't have any side effects, are inexpensive and can be bought at a grocery store, health food store, or a a Pharmacy.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    What are the allergens? do you know? There are many options that you do not have to buy (or want to ) buy from the vet office.
