    thank goodness for the past food,
    then the vet could charge you for all the visits that their food caused.
    I truly think that grain free is a leap that you may regret. because it is not the grain that they are allergic/reacting to . it is the ingredients other than grain, and the quality of all the ingredients including the grain.
    if you switch over to a formula that has grain , you will have a lower protein content and prevent her getting the hot spots that I am afraid she will liklely get , the protien content should be down around the 32 or lower percentage. for Bulldogs!! I know that many Bulldogs have done well on Natures variety for many years, but these days there are much better products, that ALSO GUARANTEE*** in WRITING what and how much of the pre and pro bitotics,(lactobacsislis,) yogurt like LIVE cultures ))that are in the foods!!! sadly Natures variety has not kept up-- nor are they as open about the cooking temps that the food is cooked at! Fromm has AND IS OPEN TO OWNERS QUESTIONS AT ANY TIME. they have a nutritionist on duty all day. the protein is 32 % and the sodium is @ .04 also. the best of grains are used. Bulldogs are not working dogs and will get hot spots from to high of a protein, I even reduce another 1% be feeding senior food that is the same but lower protein.
    and the pups food quantity is way to much. til about 7 moths feed puppy food then switch to adult , and in the mean time 3/4 cup a feeding morning then night is plenty, at the 8 month mark , or close to it , back off to 1/2 cup twice a day, for a ample sized but trim Bulldog(unless they are very active/running or jogging daily)even full sized Shepard/setters who are active) do fine on this amount of good dog food, there is no waste/filler, and it becomes cheaper in the long run. by feeding a lower protien you rule out the hot spots and skin issues, and this food or one or two others will keep your Bulldog from going to the vets in 4 to 6 years with life long organ problems. that go unnoticed for that time period, then are there for life! the wrong will over time effect those organs that way. we never get bulldogs into rescue till that age unless they are obviously at an early age reacting very badly to food. liver/kidney/heart/pancreas. are a few that are effected.
    mix apple cider vinegar/with water, 50 /50 percent. and twice a week flush the ears. after her antibiotics are done. and she will never get a yeast infection again. twice weekly wipe a cloth soaked in the mix on her paws,face wrinkles/and private areas, to keep them free of yeast also. if she gets this on her body.from this instants infection. you can rinse her for a couple weeks with the mix to clear her body up also. and it is an organic use that is safe.

    number #2 was about right, the vets say 6 to 7 months are considered adults. and Fromm has a low enough protein to not irritate the growth plates that the breeder is talking about! large breed dogs often needed adult food in the past for this. FOOD HAS COME a long way. and there is no filler. and only the best pre and pro bitoitcs(guaranteed in writing) so smaller amounts are fed and it is cheaper in the long run even though the bag costs more to buy. in the $50.00 rang for a 30 to 33 pound bag. start with the 4 star, till you have tried them all, then switch to the GOLD because it has most all of the proteins in the food -so that dogs are getting many types each feeding - to keep them from building up an intolerance to any protein. and you may switch back and forth between any meats in the same brand just fine. switch them slowly to a new food. 75% old to 25% new then 50 /50 then 75 new to old. over the course of a 5 to 6 day period. to prevent loose stools. ----<www.frommfamily.com>
    and here is a link for a good dish that will slow down fast eaters.<http://www.improvementscatalog.com/product/slow-feed-dog-bowl.do>
