    Default Here's Henry!

    Hey all, I just wanted to introduce you to my new baby, Henry. I picked him up on Saturday (also his 1st birthday) and he has been amazing! He is just a big ole' lovey mush head

    He's my first english bulldog so I just wanted to ask some opinions on a few things. His previous owners were feeding him science diet (yuck!) and I switched him to Fromm Pork & Peas. He loves it and we haven't had any issues with the transition. I'm feeding 1 cup in the morning and 1 in the evening, is this enough food? Also, I notice his muzzle turns pink after eating which lasts for a few hours. Is this a "bulldog" thing?

    He is crazy friendly with anyone and everyone. He wants nothing more than to be as close to people as possible and gets slobbery and jumpy when anyone is anywhere near him. Is this something that neutering will help?

    I'm posting a few pictures so you can see him, does he look like he's in good shape in the full body shot? I can't really see his ribs but his waist looks thin to me??

    Thanks for taking the time to read! Henry & I are excited to be apart of this community

    Oh my goodness! Look at that kissable face! Both of you! From my experience, that is a great food...dogs noses can turn pink w allergies. Could be the food even tho it is grain free....Make sure he is he eating and drinking out of stainless steel bowls. Bullies can have issues w ceramic and plastic. More ppl will pop over here and have suggestions and excellent thoughts...just hang in there!

    Wow...what a sweetie pie, Congratulations! He looks a bit thin to me BUT
    Fromm's is such a better, nutritionally better food so he will adsorb more of
    it than the other, I'd keep him on a cup each meal and give him a couple months
    on it then see. Stainless steel bowls only, he may be reacting to pork as an allergen
    altho, it takes at least a month to clear old food from their systems so again, reassess
    him in a month and see what you think. Be firm about NO JUMPING on people, use a
    leash (keep on him in the house) and then you've got control to tug him down. It
    won't take long for him to get it. Welcome to EBN & GOD bless y'all.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I just want to squish that little face! Henry is soooo cute! Welcome. He does look a little thin, but I'm thinking he'll fill out pretty quick now that you have him on the good stuff. Half of my Dudley's face is white -- when he gets excited, really tired or when he has just eaten, the white side tends to get red, but it usually goes away pretty quickly. When he's really tired, the white fur/skin around his eye gets red...goes away after a nap. More folks will be along to add some advice I'm sure. Meanwhile WELCOME!!!

    Welcome! Look at that cute face... he's such a handsome fella! I'm sure with some good food he will start filling out nicely. Aubie's face gets pink/red sometimes after playing or chewing. I haven't noticed it after eating, but it usually because she's rubbing her face on whatever beforehand. I know since she gets nose to floor/bowl/toy, her face rubs (since it's so flat!) and it gets pink but it goes away rather quickly.

    Welcome to the site and Henry is a good looking boy. The red on his nuzzle could just be from eating out of his bowl since is goes away shortly after he eats. What type of bowl are you feeding him out of, Stainless Steel is the best. Plastic are not that great for them. It's hard to tell from the pics, but he does look a little thin, but two cups of food a day should be good for him. Give it about a month and see if he fills out a little more, now that you have him on a good food. Plus the first year they are a little lanky anyway and will fill out the second year.

    and you have a very handsome boy there! I feed 1 cup in the a.m. and 1 cup in the p.m. for years now, and as @Davidh said SS bowls is the way to go! Also after every time he drinks you should dry his chin. I keep Shammies by the water bowl because they are super absorbent and give Vegas a wipe down every time he drinks to keep his chin in order.
