    Default Choosing puppy food

    Hello,

    So I am having a hard time choosing food for my 8weeks old English bulldog. I am feeding him IAMS smart puppy 3 times a day but im thinking to switch.

    I looked at the Dog Food Ratings page, but its hard to decide.

    So what food do you recommend for a puppy?

    thanks

    Hi you really can't go wrong choosing one of the 4 to 6 Star foods, they are all good, but like HrsDiva said its best to choose a food that you can find in your area, one that you can afford, and that your bully tolerates. Sometimes it's a trial and error process until you find the right one. Some good examples of good quality food are Fromm's, Wellness, Blue Buffalo, Arcana, Orijen, Go Natural, Natural Balance, or Natures Variety.

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    I went with the grain free large breed puppy food from Nature's Variety Instinct. A little more expensive compared to other brands but not too bad on Amazon. Picking a food was a big debate for me and Churchill seems to doing well with it. He is almost 18 weeks and has been on it for about a month and a half. Three times a day with yogurt added on top for supper.

    Hi Miyuiki, it's not that EBs don't like chicken, most bullies like everything lol. It's that they either don't tolerate it or they are allergic to chicken. Many bullies are very sensitive and can be allergic to many things in the food as well such as corn, grains, and other fillers, and they can also be allergic to things in their environment both indoors and outside. Things they can be sensitive to inside is cleaners, laundry soaps, shampoos, flea treatments and powders, or carpet deodorizers, things that can cause allergies outside are some of the same things that we can be allergic to like bug bites, wasps or bee stings, grasses, trees, and pollen.

    There are many good puppy formulas our there. If you looked at the list, you can then check out the brand and see what they offer puppies.

    Meat is good. Dogs are carnivores so you definitely want a kibble with a lot of animal protein.

    When one of mine was a puppy, I fed him Fromm Puppy formula in the Blue bag. It's the large breed puppy formula for dogs that will be over 50lbs when they're fully grown.
