    are heated to about 194F (90 C) during the cooking-extrusion process (would not reveal cooking time for dry food) and canned foods are heated to about 248F (120C) for at least 20-30 minutes. (((that length of time would hydrolyze all the ingredients down to their component imino acids. Very bad !!!)))) to hot-- to long. Most foods are cooked at about that degree for a 5 to 6 minuets!!!!

    Chicken By-Product Meal, Soybean Meal, Animal Fat (


    Red Flag Ingredients: Chicken by-product meal, Animal Fat)---is this a quality PRODUCT TO YOU ????

    Minus:.... The Science Diet Representative told me ingredients are pet quality/grade not human quality/grade. The mineral listings do not read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This food does NOT appear to contain probiotics (friendly bacteria that benefits the intestinal system and in turn the immune system of the pet). Contains Animal Fat - ingredient determined by the FDA to be most likely to contain euthanized animals. Contains by-products. Contains Sodium Selenite - potential risk form of selenium.
    I do hope all of you rethink trusting the vet for your loved ones foods. sience diet can now be found in pet food stores too. SCARY!!!!!!!
    no quality pet foods will be found in a large chain pet store----THEY CANNOT MAKE ENOUGH PROFIT PER BAG. and even us small stores can make a $20 .00 profit at least. so how much do the chain stores NEED????

    please do not forget the vitamins---- (childrens liquid vitamins will do nicely,) 1/2 teaspoon per 50 lb dog per day, also calcium. 2 eggs shells ground up will do nicely. please ask your vets for exact amounts, depending on your dog.

    Hi there- I just reread your note- and bumps- are allergies. are they Between the toes? you can get neam powder @ the vets, and shake a little in between the toes after you dry them when she comes out of the bath. but it is due to allergies.most likely. washing feet when coming in really helps also , why not put some baby socks on her and Velcro them on , to put a barrier between her feet and the ground. works well.

    if she is getting bad again, then she is allergic to something, it is usually food,(and don't give her shots any more often than 4 to 6 months,(they are good for only 6 weeks--BUT--- these shots stop working at all if given very much)ask for a script for Genesis topical spray, it is a very mild steroid like the shot- but much milder) and she wont build up a resistance to the shots,(life is miserable after that, itching 24/7) you just give a few light sprays when ever she starts to itch, just for that day, and you can get several days in between for several months if-- she is eating the Fromm food, which is what I have started feeding the last year since I found out that EVERYTHING THEY NEED IS IN THAT FOOD- it is more costly to buy , but cheaper because you dont feed as much, 1/2 cup twice a day, or at the most ,2/3 cup twice a day. stay away from the salmon(because of Bulldogs tend to get stones) and never any brand that may use organs in the food.

    It took us about a year to figure out what Bruno could handle. He would throw up all the time. Turns out he is allergic to everything except fish. So right now, we have him on Fromm Salmon a la Veg and he has been much healthier. Ironically, Bunker is allergic to fish (of course!), so we have him on the Fromm Puppy food for now. I am thinking we will try the Fromm Beef Frittata with him. You could keep trying different proteins to figure out if it is that. It takes a lot of time, but in the end, once it is figured out, it is totally worth it! Good luck!

    so how long has he been on fromm food? and if he is on puppy food -which flavor-MEAT-?if he is allergic to fish(and you know this how)? how many of the Fromm different meats have you tried?
    the reason I ask this is -- you can feed a bulldog fish from fromm foods, and the same ingredients but with another brand of food--and they will throw up the other food!!! it is not only whats in it but how it is made.!! so my advice to owners with dogs that are reactive to many foods is to try each type of meat of the Fromm foods for 2 months each type meat, until you have tried all of them.with no reaction form any of them.OF course if the dog is throwing up the food within 24 hrs or less stop!! with that food and call them allergic to the type meat or protein. but it takes a few weeks up to two months to really try something so that you know that the food/medicine what ever is working/causing any reaction for sure.
    one thing may be that he is allergic to a different type of fish!not just salmon. if he is ok on salmon. he may not be OK on the white fish, which is by the way better for dog s who may be prone to stones. than salmon which is better /higher in minerals than other fish. the rule of thumb for reactions/intolerance /allergic to meats/proteins is the more common the meat the more likely chance they have been fed it often and continuously for so long that they have built up an intolerance to a given meat/protein. the most common at this time is beef and lamb, because dogs have been fed these two for so long with no variation till they have become reactive to it. young pups are a surprise every time we feed them something new so I suggest a great food that is guaranteed so that you can take back the bag, (no matter how little is left and exchange it ) and try a different meat type. good luck and keep in touch. my email is bullysmum@gmail.com

    I'm new to this forum but, am learning so much. Thank you for all your input.
    Just last yr we lost one of our boys (Chief) to stones. I'm blessed to still have his brother Samson...
    and we also have another 10mth old- Mason.

    As all of you, i too have issue with Allergies and trying to find the right food for my boys.
    I've tried Natural Balance Grain Free, California Natural, Wellness, and currently in transition to Taste of the Wild from Orijen.

    I've tried the shots and pills. I'm a nursing student and know that just as our bodies react to meds, so do our precious animals.
    Any and all advise is appreciated on what to try for my boys and thier allergies. I will continue reading and learn : )

    the main reason dogs get stones is they are not drinking enough water, and Bulldogs are famous for laying around and sleeping and not drinking enough. if they ran and worked hard they might but they dont
    so by adding a little (2 to 3 TBS) of chicken broth to the water dish it makes them like it better and the salt keeps them thirsty.
    once a dog has had crystals or stones(and you have paid for the surgery)you increase the water and monitor the bladder /kidneys
    as a rule salmon is great for dogs. the omega 3 and 6 is what they need for joints and arthritis and such . but for dogs that have had stones, food other than salmon is recommended, like the whitefish,chicken,and never any organ meats. and believe me the food you are feeding will have organ meat as some protein. unless the bag says ---muscle meat ---it will have by product meat-- and theat can mean brains,hooves, chicken feathers,beaks,stomach contents,intestines. all of the left over things from human cuts.----unless it says --muscle meat -- it isn't!!!!!!
    that is one of the reasons I recommend Fromm foods. they get daily shipments of muscle meats for their foods.that means the roasts, steaks ,chuck sirloin. and the have a nutritionist on duty all and every day to answer questions of the public.I have been in touch with him twice today already about mineral content be cause my dog is having issues. you see in marketing the words WILD/WOLF.NATURAL/NUTRO/ORGANIC/HEALTHY those kinds of words mean something hinting at goodness!!!! like benifull!!! all that nice beef stew and veggies floating around .should be a good stew you would think., NOT------no meat what so ever , just stomach contents,(what the cow had eatin when killed) 3 kinds of salt (separately labeled so no one suspects just how much is in it ) and a lot of corn, or beet pulp, (cheap fillers)
    unless you wish to have a dog that is in the vets time after time doing tests. just ask a rescue bulldog person what foods they have seen the dogs coming in eating.
    many foods do not cause problems right away, the go un noticed except to the internal organs for years , till they keep causing other issues like ear infections skin issues, and many vet visits till people give up and surrender them cause they can t afford to take them to vets anymore. and that is usually about 4 to 6 yrs old,but I have had several dog s at ten that folks have surrendered.I have no idea how someone can have a dog for 10 yrs and give it away.ugh!
    SO IN THE BEGINNING --go strait to the great food___that BULLDOGS CAN EAT--- not any other breed__it might be fine for a labor Shepard--but not bulldogs. bath them once a week with a baby shampoo(PH balance is fine)use the vinegar water mix 2 x a week in ears,on paws,private parts,in wrinkles on face. and you will stay out of the vets office.
