    Default Finally got the weight issue perfected.

    This has been a big pain in my rear since I got Baxter. So I'm glad we got it figured out finally. He was extremely underweight on Raw, but I did not want him to be obese and struggling because of Kibble. So I found this amazing frozen "whole food" pet food that is low-heat cooked. Then added a little "safe" carb-based kibble. Now his weight seems perfect to me. He's not obese - so no breathing issues, and can run, jump and be very active. And he's not too skinny - seeing skin and bones.

    Anyways it turns out this is his perfect regimen:

    Farm Fresh Pet Food (Cooked version - Chicken or Beef): 1/2 lb
    Blue Buffalo Basic (Sweet Potatoes & Turkey): 1/2 cup

    3x a day.

    The Blue buffalo people told me it contains exactly 45% carbohydrates. So that was perfect. Added a little healthy carb (sweet potatoes) to the other stuff which is 100% protein only. He filled out great. The "Basic" line is actually marketed to English Bulldogs, and while its not a "four star" rated food, the ingredients looked great to me.

    I may plump him up just a *tiny* bit more. He's still filling out though. Just hitting the 1 year mark. But definitely watching his diet and its paying off in so many ways. Very happy.

    Baxter looks great. I am glad you were able to find a food that works well for him.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Still seems a bit skinny to me, but everyone comments that he's "the perfect weight" at the park.

    Still he looks like a rail compared to most english bulldogs. Maybe I'll plump him a little more lol
