    While protein in their food is normally absorbed as energy if there is too much it can cause excess to be processed through the kidneys and if your bully has kidney issues this can be a very bad thing.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I know that protein is super important for dogs, I've heard that all the scares about high protein such as kidney issues are not necessarily try, however from what I've learned be use bullies are not extremely active they should have a crude protein % below 30. Puppies around 28% is good. If your bully is more active then a highest protein % isn't an issue. But, with that said, I'm no expert ...I'm sure someone else can chime in and add to or correct this info

    You want high protein for growing puppies, sick and pregnant dogs but if you are trying to maintain weight and the dog is not active lower percentage of protein is better otherwise you will possible get runny poo or an overweight pup. All dogs are different you just need to adjust or change the food as needed to maintain weight and health.

    Ella loves her chew toys. I bought her a Kong, and she loves that. Hard rubber ones are usually the best. No latex as they rip easily, and your pup can chew them up and swallow pieces. As for the Antlers, you're right, they are super expensive. If you know any hunters though, ask them for there antlers or raw bones. My sister feeds raw and her boyfriend and his friends are all hunters, so she gets alot of goodies for her pups, and shares with me for my Ella. She also goes to the grocery store, and asks them for their meet scraps. She gets bones, steaks, chickens.
    Also if you have a local pet shop, as apposed to say petco or petsmart, they may have a better deal on bones. I know ours does. My boyfriend was able to get Ella a huge cow shoulder blade for $3.95. It's almost as big as she is lol
    Good luck =)
