    Question Chew toys and Food..which is best!!?!

    I have heard many people tell me that certian chew toys arent good for bulldogs, same with food. I know you want to get food that has first ingredient as protein. I was at petco just last night switching my bullys food to blue buffalo and noticed that BB caries 3 different brands of grain-free food! i didnt know which to go with cause i didnt know the difference so i just went with blue wilderness because it has the highest crude protein content.

    Now on to chew toys and such. ive heard that antlers are the best thing for bullys to chew on but they are 10 bucks for a little one!!..any suggestions?!

    There are a lot of 5 and 6 start foods out ther you could feed your bully. I along with many other use either Fromm's Gold or 4 Star grain free lines. You may have to expierment with different brands and protines to find what works for your bully. As for chew toys there are a lot of thosehtoo. Anything you get should be designed for powerful chewers as our babies can and will destroy lesser imitations quickly sometimes with illness and choking as the end result. Do not give your bully rawhides or bully sticks as they are choking hazards. Kongs, Nylabones and Antlers are the best. Antlers are more expensive but they do last a long time so to me they are worth the cost but I would never buy a small one as it could become a choking hazard.

    Marine91 gave you some great advise. I would also add a raw frozen (do not cook) femur bone/ soup bone. No smaller then 3 inches long. They will chew on it forever and once they get the marrow out you can stuff with treats (peanut butter, banana) and freeze -img_0675-jpg-img_0678-jpg and use again.

    Nylabone and kong have good stuff as well. Food wise really is up to you. I use Fromm but I've heard good things about BB. Just make sure the protein content isn't too high.

    Where do you get the deer antlers? I ordered some on PetFlow, but I need to return them, they are way too small...

    I actually get my own deer and elk via hunting each year. However there are sites other than Petflow that sell them by the pound in a wide variety of sizes. I am actually trying to find a piece of flat paddle from a moose antler myself. Google bring up a ton of sites that can't be posted here.
