    Please let us know how it goes! I am looking for everyone to take before and after pictures for our "Dog Food then and Now" page, similar to our other then and now pages. So make sure you send us the photos once you can see the visible difference!

    yes I use SoJo's too. it is great, however , the Canidae.---Blue Buffalo ----Taste of the Wild are not great foods. please email me privately. and I will send you a breakdown of what is actually in them and why they are not great, or even that good!
    and I also can tell you how much the sojo's makes per bag. it swells tremendously. meat is all you need.
    BUT-- if you cant guarantee that the meat has no e-coli--- meaning. know the butcher, or do not take the chance. cook the meat. dogs get e-coli, and salmonella like we do. good luck.

    As a rule of thumb, anything that is advertised on tv is crap. The company is spending more money on advertisement than they are on improving the quality of the food. We feed Vegas and Orion a food called Dog Lovers Gold. They do not use any fillers. No corn, no wheat or soy. When we first found the food in 2007, we had to drive to Oregon to buy it. But, since word of mouth works wonders, is has finally made it's way to Washington state. It can go anywhere from 40 to 50 dollars for a bag. We found an awesome lady in Oregon who buys it from the distributor and sells it for what she buys it. So we get it for 30 dollars a bag. This is awesome food. I can't begin to say enough about it. Every dog will react different to different foods. Vegas hardly ever has gas. Orion is sometimes gassy. But compared to my mom's two bulldogs who eat Royal Canin.....those two are smelly gassy and all day gassy. http://www.dogloversgold.eu/usa/ingredients.html

    thank you for posting this link. I read this book many years ago , when it first came out but didn't copy the name of the author. I am going to buy it an show people , and remember it was many years ago.!!!!
    things are even worse now. if anyone has a chance to down load a (dirtiest jobs segment on rendering plants) please do - it is so informative!! if ANY PET FOOD doesn't say-- human grade, prime cut, muscle meat. you are getting meat by products, from the rendering plants. and those Companies will also get the vitamins from chemically,man made and probably imported ingredients! there are MAYBE 6 FOODS on the market that are good enough to feed any dogs let alone BULLDOGS !
    any one wanting information about ingredients in pet foods, contact me privately. @ bullysmum@gmail.com I belong to the truth about pet foods site.

    I searched all the good food from the list one by one and I found we don't have any of them here in Bulgaria. The best food we have is Science plan and it is approximately 100$ per bag which is to much for me with my 2 dogs. I decide to cook for them home food - rise, meet, vegetables. I also order from England some supplement with vitamins and minerals and one with natural fibers. I started yesterday.
    Do you think it will be good for them?

    Dear Sofia
    thank you for caring , if you have internet, go online and type in natures logic, then click on find a store, they will ask for a mailing zip code!! put that in the open box , and it should tell you where you can buy it, the same with any brand,you want, if you need help please e-mail me - bullysmum@gmail ----- and I will call the manufacturer and find out a place to buy it for you. just let me know your mailing zip code.
    But If you choose to make the dog food-- it is important to get the mix of meat to carbs(yams/sweet potatoes, brown rice, correct.not to mention vitamins,calcium. they do not need a whole lot, but in the right portion. I must go just now for an appointment, but will be back later today with more info for you. in the mean time. email me with your zip.privately. thanks Sofia.

    Hi -

    My Bulldog came to me from the breeder being fed EUKANUBA. As a result, his skin and allergies were horrible. I am quickly weaning him off the Eukanuba and putting him on INNOVA - No corn, No wheat, No soy. Once his allergies calm down, I'm sure he will feel a whole lot better. I have tried numerous dog foods on my PUG as well, including Buffalo Blue, Wellness, Solid Gold, and she would not eat any of them. She will only eat INNOVA. I trust Innova, and for at least the present time (even though Proctor & Gamble has purchased the company) the food has good ingredients.

    while the food until now has had no red flag ingredients, it has only had 10 reviews, not enough to qualify as tried and true. HOWEVER now that that company has been bought, it will change very much. just as EUKANUBA. did, and Wellness just did. and Iams, and many problems do not show up for years, BUT BY THEN its to late. Please consider changing right away, to one of these foods, there was an issue about eukanuba that I wouldn't feed my Bulldogs 12 yrs ago. and I think it was soy,( the source of lethacyn) in many foods. in order of choice, this food guarantees the food analysis to be true. and they put it in writing as such, right on the bag. Fromm, it has it as is on the bag. you will not find an food with better ratings than this food. Natures Logic is next,but then natures variety is next followed by Merricks. innova is way down there in amongst the middle. organ damage takes a while to show.one of many that hide for long periods. if you find the company online and type in your zip it will tell you where you can find any food. and remember-- if it is in petco, or petsmart, it is not a quality food. they do not make enough profit to carry it. and even if they did, I can get 20 dollars a bag profit on it myself and that should be against the law to make even that much on the product. how much are they making on those brands. that's why manufacturers want to make it cheaper so they can sell more to stores. and why they spend so much on advertising. the good foods do not advertise, the product does it for them. advertising is the most costly of all marketing. ask your self. why they need to do this?

    I spent alot of time on dogfoodanalysis.com reading Reviews of all of the dog foods. INNOVA is a 5-Star Food, and a very good food. FROMM is a 4-Star Food. MERRICK is a 5-Star Food. My Bulldog is a 5-month old Puppy - NATURE'S LOGIC does not make Puppy Food. NATURE'S VARIETY also does not make Puppy Food. I will stick with INNOVA until I see that Proctor & Gamble is altering it's current ingredient composition. My main concern right now is to eliminate the Allergic reaction my Bulldog apparently has had as a result of being fed Eukanuba for months. I will try both FROMM and MERRICK as they both have very positive Reviews.
