    Finished switching Wilson from Royal Canin Bulldog to Nature's Variety Instinct Beef and Lamb. All seems to be well. Nice firm 's now. He use to throw up every now and then and that seems to have stopped.

    BabyGirl is taking longer to warm up. She still prefers her Wellness Core. She will sneak a bite or two of the NVI but hasn't made the jump. My Frenchton Louie nibbles at both but prefers freshly boiled chicken.

    Good Luck, finding the right food for Vegas was quite the challenge, but when you finally do the pay-off is so worth it!! His allergies have improved, he does not stink and rarely has gas. But the road to get where we are at was just trial and error.

    Okay that is just a wee bit high, I prefer to stay around 30 and under for a growing puppy. There is some discussion on too much protein during the growing stages, but I have never found anything solid to reflect on that theory. Most of what I have found is hearsay, but I also prefer to be safe than sorry. I think if you make sure she gets plenty of exercise to utilize the protein she should be fine, and you can always reduce the kibble by just 1/4 of a cup and add a big spoonful of cottage cheese, and some frozen veggies or fruits (so she does not act like you are starving her!)

    Ok, so her suggested serving size is 3 to 5 months, 21 lbs to 50 lbs 1 1/2 to 3 cups per day. So, what do you suggest for her daily diet intake?

    At 4 months I would go with 2.5 cups a day on the kibble portion.

    Gator was on the Wellness puppy and Lucy was on TOTW bison and they both had terrible gas. I put them both on Fromm (pork & applesauce and Beef Frittata) and the gas is virtually gone.

    Good luck with your switch! Finding the right food is worth it!

    Thank you. I would love to try the Fromm but it is not sold near by. I like to buy my dogfood in person.

    I, too, like to buy my dog food in person. lol. I was lucky to find a small store here that carries it. I do have the store order the large bags. I think there are several foods out there that work well for bulldogs, I am sure you will find a good one for you
