    The Chicken Broth is a fantastic suggestion.
    What is the vinegar/water mix? I definitely need to do this, Samson gets yeast in his ropes right above the nose and in the ears....

    My older bully, Bruno (1 year, 4 months) has been on Fromm Salmon a la Veg for about 5-6 months. He seems to be doing really well...we feed him 2/3-3/4 cup 3 times a day. My younger bully, Bunker (4 months) is on the Fromm Puppy Gold formula (2/3-3/4 cup 3 times a day). I say he is allergic to salmon, because we tried to feed him the same food as Bruno, but he got really bad diarrhea. We put him on a bland diet for a few weeks until the diarrhea cleared up, and tried it again (to make sure it was, in fact, the food causing the diarrhea), and he immediately got diarrhea again. He has not had diarrhea since putting him on the Fromm Puppy Gold. So, we are going to have to make some decisions soon about what Fromm food to try next with him when we get him off the puppy food...we will ONLY buy Fromm food. When do you recommend we make the switch from Fromm Puppy to Fromm All Life Stages? We also give each dog about 1 TBSP. of 100% canned pumpkin with their 3rd meal. And we use cucumbers and Fromm treats for snacks.

    THE mix is 50/50 2 x a week, wrinkles,paws, private parts, and ears of course, I use a baby's ear syringe with the long tip, so that I get it right down deep, they will smell like a dill pickle, but never yeasty!! they will run at the smell of it too.!LOL!!

    I did some digging and this is what I found, this company is new, they have only had 6 reviews, I wont us e anyone till they have had at least 10, But I will explain why I would not use this food, and why you wont want to either, some things do not appear quickly or obviously in /on a dog for up to 4 to 6 years, when they will effect internal organs, and become life long chronic issues!
    -----------------
    Ingredients: {{ Bison, venison broth, lamb broth, lamb liver, egg, }}}(peas, potato starch, ))sweet potatoes, ((potatoes,)) roasted venison, roasted bison, ocean fish, guar gum, natural flavor, tomatoes, sodium tripolyphosphate, canola oil,(( salt,)) potassium chloride, calcium carbonate, choline chloride, chicory root, iron proteinate (a source of chelated iron), zinc proteinate (a source of chelated zinc), yucca schidigera extract, vitamin E supplement, cobalt proteinate (a source of chelated cobalt), blueberries, raspberries, copper proteinate (a source of chelated copper), manganese proteinate (a source of chelated manganese), riboflavin supplement, ((sodium))) selenite, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin A supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, potassium iodide, biotin, vitamin D3 supplement.
    ---also this food is full of man made vitamins--NOT natural vitamins** from foods. and why do they use plain white potatoes 2 x , and why use salt in 2 places(so you wont notice how much salt ))



    Red Flag Ingredients: No
    US Only Ingredients: Yes
    Natural Preservatives: Yes
    Shelf Life: 12 months
    4.3 dry rating
    Crude Protein: 32% Crude Fat: 18% Crude Fiber: 3% Moisture: 10%
    Per Taste of the Wild -(((( 60% of the above protein percentage is from meat sources.))) OFTEN THE PROTEIN SOURCES CAN ACTUALLY COME FROM OLD BOOTS -seriously-once it was a cow hide !!! and fiber can be sawdust!!(if only 60 % comes from meat, what is the other 40 % from ??


    Plus: The Taste of the Wild Pet Food Representative told me the ingredients are human quality/grade. The mineral listings do read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This food does appear to contain friendly bacteria (benefits the intestinal system and in turn the immune system of the pet);*****however the probiotics are not listed in Guaranteed Analysis.*** This pet food contains several quality animal protein sources (bison, lamb meal, chicken meal, egg, venison).

    Minus: Contains Sodium Selenite - potential risk form of selenium. (((Contains Canola Oil; controversial oil not tested for safety with animals ---and it is GENETICALLY MODIFIED--ONE OF 5 THINGS THAT ARE ON THE MARKET-- SOY,SUGAR-(FROM BEETS),CORN,CANOLA OIL,-& i CANT REMEMBER THE OTHER ONE,))
    (over heating and cooking , hydrolyzes the food and then it is easier to digest BUT lessens the equality of the food /cooks out the good stuff!! and it is hazardous once it becomes hydrolyzed!!! and they are secretive about ,how hot or how long they cook.
    --------------------------------------------
    The Fromm Representative stated 'meat meal' ingredients (chicken meal, duck meal,...) ((((do not contain by-products, only muscle meat))) this means the roasts ,staeks,chops that you and I buy, and they put it in writing!!! pretty good guarantee!! fish meal preserved with citric acid (natural preservative). Manufacturing plants have APHIS EU certification. Dry foods are cooked at 255 F for 50 seconds. For more information on Fromm Family Pet Foods visit http://ww
    -- and this is the difference in Fromm, they have had 20 reviews, and a 5 dry rating out of 5 Plus--: The Fromm Family Representative told me ingredients are human grade/human quality. The mineral listings do read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This food contains friendly bacteria (benefits the intestinal system and in turn the immune system of the pet);(((( included in Guaranteed Analysis (company guarantees viable bacteria). IN WRITING!! Contains Flaxseed, Alfalfa - health promoting ingredients.

    Minus: Contains Sodium Selenite - potential risk form of selenium.
    ngredients: Beef, Peas, Whole Dried Eggs, Potatoes, Pea Protein, Pork Meat Meal, Beef Liver, Sweet Potatoes, Tomato Pomace, Salmon Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Flaxseed, Cheese, Safflower Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Vegetable Broth, Whole Eggs, Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Apples, Green Beans, Lecithin, Pork Cartilage, Potassium Chloride, Cranberries, Blueberries, Salt, Chicory Root Extract, Alfalfa Sprouts, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Folic Acid, Parsley, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Longum, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Enterococcous Faecium, Vitamin A, D3, E, B12 Supplements, Choline Bitartrate, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Manganous Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Cobalt Carbonate, Calcium Iodate, Sorbic Acid, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite.
    THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF THE BEEF ONE
    BUT FROMM is only one out of 2 companies in the US and Canada who will guarantee in WRITING that they pre and pro biotics are in the food and how much the minimum is, and they are pleased to tell you how hot the food is cooked ,and how long-
    You can look at the two foods and pay attention to the parts that I have put into parenthesizes. and get a much better idea of what you are buying. No other pet foods say muscle meat--- FROMM is proud of the quality. and they have nutritionist on duty all day, and you can talk to him directly, I do so often.! good luck, understanding pet food labels is just like going to the car lot, and trusting the salesman.
    thank god I took marketing in college.

    @SamsonSezz We don't have Fromm in the 4* range locally either ... and it's the 4* range that @Lindathedogsmaid recommends the most because of the quality and how good it is for our bullys. My local retailer was over 20 miles away and they only sold the 5lb bags ... so I did a bit of digging. You can go to www.petflow.com and you can get your fromm food delivered from there. They are excellent!!! Also because they got posted about in our threads here on EBN they contacted us and have offered EBN users a code that can give some good deals on shipping. Believe me I went to the Fromm online supplier website and must have spent two hours looking up the cost of each one, and petflow came out the best. So go to the thread on here and look up the coupons and codes thread and you should find a code you can use if you go to the petflow website to get some deals.

    please send me your zip code and I'll find some stores for you. e mail me @ bullysmum@gmail.com
    what state do you live in ? several stores say they carry it but when calling they say I can order it , not many people really request a great food when they hear it costs 50some dollars. But what they dont know is 1/2 cup twice a day is plenty for a bully. unless they are a pup, then 2/3 twice a day, the stay stocky on that much too. no waste because of no filler! SO it is cheaper in the long run , and not so much to pick up in the yard.

    Fantastic! Thank you for the info. I too called a few local feed stores (near my job) and they only sell the small bags. I'll try the Petflow.com in the case that TOTW doesn't work out.

    I read through this thread again and it has been going for over a year ...... it's fascinating to see how much we have learnt from each other about nutrition and allergies. I wonder how different the answers would be now if the original poster @Frances had asked this question in February 2011!!!

The Smart Balance is OK, but caused Taz to have loose bowels, and he gained a lot of weight on it. He also had bowel problems with the Solid Gold. This stuff works great for him.
    Hi, I also feed the Royal Canin puppy food but then swtich over to the Canidae ALS/Grain free for the adults and this also works great for my 5 bullies. But EACH EBD will be different so don't just everyone take the word of what someone of a website says. You will have to find out for your OWN bullie what works. But as a "best practice" swtich over slowly over the course of a week or more to any change in dog foods.

    i always look up what is best online for bulldogs and most people say Blue, and i have had no problem with this dogfood, it is pricey but well worth it, My dogs coats are beautiful and they are very healthy.
    I heard science diet is very bad and that vets just get paid a percentage to sell this, read the ingredients in the food and see for yourself.
