    Default Upgrading my eb

    So my girlfriend set up an appointment for Aye-Ma because of my previous post about her paws being flamed up red inside.So we went and they said that its not worst,but it seems a LITTLE BIT better.And like the last time they still try to get me to Royal Canin allegy food and Science diet.First thing that came to my mind was i read alot about Royal Canin and its full of filler(junk).And they want me to get the allergy food from them.They keep insisting so i just agree and took the prescriptoin and left lol.Because i heard the people at banfield support royal canin and whatever they sell in the store.Plus if they keep insisting on switching food .Why not go to better food.Seems like alot of bully on EBN switched away from Royal to Fromm or NVI had improve in health and so on.
    Then when i got to the car i googled Fromm and wheres the closest store that have em.Good thing was it was only about 10 minutes away names PAWSatively Yummy.When i went in and told her the story and she was very helpful.She did a little research with me and actually point out every single ingredients that can cause allergy for my dog in the royal canin.Her store had like most of the 5 6 star food from EBN.Which made me feel that i can believe her and that she can help me out.After talking and she told me to start off with the Fromm Beef Frittata.I asked about the surf n turf and NVI.She told me to start slow,plus she said surf and turf half two kind of protein base or whatever im not sure.But i guess one step at a time.If anything i can switch to a new one.I just want my bully to be healthy.Also my one year wellness plan at banfield end march.After that im gotta bring her to a bulldog vet that i found online with all vet specialize in bulldog,so that might also be an upgrade for her



    .And so i bought her 12lb fromm beef and 1 xl Elk Antler....Wish me luck guys

    Very good! That is the same bag I just opened! you found a great friend in helping your Bully get the right food! We started on the Surf n Turf, which because of it having chicken in it, didn't work for Jake. I'm glad you are starting with the Beef! I hope it is the magic formula for Aye-Ma! Plus..I hope you can return the other food and get your money back!

    Good for you, and hope the FROMM works out for you, plus if you ever try a different flavor of FROMM and your dog does not like it or it does not set well you can take it back and exchange it or get your money back. Keep us posted.

    That is music to my ears! Makes me so happy to see someone standing up against bad advice. Even my bully vet tried to push science diet on me but I stood my ground and said no way. Petco employees advised Royal Canin but the best advice came from the folks here on EBN. Antler was the icing on the cake.

    Let's hope you are on the right track with the Fromm. I don't know if you know the proper way to transition from one food to another so I apologize if I tell you something you already know. When Transitioning you want to do it slowly as bullies have sensitive tummies and too fast of a transition will end up a mess. For the first several days mix 1/4 new food to 3/4 old food. THen do 1/2 and 1/2 for another week. Finally mix 3/4 new food to 1/4 old food for a week before switching to all new food. If at any time your bully has an upset tummy (runs or barf) back up and give a little less of the new food til his tummy settles down, then proceed with the transition. It will take quite a while to get the affects of the old food out of his system so hang in there. Finding the right food is a trial and error process. Good Luck!

    Congrats on finding a food store that actually CARES about the food that you are feeding!!!! When we swtiched Maggie she just seemed so much better .. so much more energy that I am eternally grateful for finding this site and learning about food.

    It is so easy to assume that because your vet tells you to feed a paticular food that it has to be good, and we don't realise that vets are not trained in nutrition and just believe whatever the salesman tells them.

    Good news about the vet switch also. Banfield doesn't get any points from me.
