    Default Bulldog folds and food

    So was wondering if there is a special way too clean out the folds around his nose?
    Also I been feeding him this none grain food called Canidae life stage dog food. Someone said that I should be feeding him this Royal canin Bulldog food I think the Canidae is the best. What do you guys feed yours?

    You can use unscented baby wipes, then a dry cloth. Or you can use witch hazel, gold bond powder to dry folds. Don't "puff" the powder-you don't want it in his eyes, or lungs. There is also something called duoxo pads. Many bulldogs are sensitive to foods. Check out the food articles on EBN. If he is doing well on what you feed, I wouldn't mess with it, because it may cause upsets. I feed mine, Taste of the Wild, which is grain-free, as my Frenchie has allergies to the grain-so they all eat it. There are others on here, who will certainly have more suggestions.

    No to Royal Canin, Yes to what your feeding, Thumbs Up to Grain Free!

    At Walmart, CVS, Walgreen's, etc you can buy store brand versions of
    Tucks~premoistened pads for hemmoroids but solution works great to
    clean nose rope, wrinkles & around & under tail (make sure to clean the
    tail pocket, can be deep). No need to dry afterwards as it evaporates or
    powder either. Neat, effective & easy!

    RIP beloved boy.

    That is awesome about the pads
    I thought that the grain free was the best. Just because it says made for bulldogs did not mean it really is.

    Before I found EBN and looking to put my newly adopted bully on a better food
    (he was on Iams), I went to PetsMart and asked for a bulldog food. They gave
    me a kibble w/a bully pic on the front & info about being formulated for bulldogs.
    IT was awful and poor Brutus reacted horribly, once I educated myself, it was
    everything NOT GOOD for our bullies. Ugh, so much is just marketing i.e. lies!

    On the top bar, go to Forum and scroll down to the different sections you are
    interested in, there are tons of great articles that go into great detail about all
    your questions. Read, read, read...and learn, my new friend~GOD bless!

    Finding the right food can be tough and require a trial and error period. I just recently found out that Fromms four star works best in keeping my white EB folds from turning red. But all dogs are different. The only reason I switched to Fromms is because I realized curly had a salmon allergy because he started licking his paws after I switched his protein to salmon

    I only use baby wipe, though I have duoxo pads at hand just in case. Curly is in his pimple phase right now and the duoxo pad helps clear up the chin acne.

    I have been using canidae for about three months, my bullies love it. I order from chewy.com and it comes UPS to my porch.

    What's the price if I can ask also which flavor? I am using lamb and I am paying 13.99 for a 5.5 lb bag I think.

    Great advice on the nose wrinkle, one thing I do when cleanjng the nose rope is I push the skin up on the forehead, that really opens up the fold on the nose so you can get a good view of what's going on in there.

    I use all life stages 44 lb bag 52.99 placed on my porch. I checked with local pet store the guy said that it would take couple days, they would have to order and the price somewhere around 67.00. I just said thank-u and ordered couple of bags. Chewy even sent me a thank-u card.
