    It looks like a good food. Maybe he has an issue with Duck, or maybe it's not the food, just environmental.

    How long has he been on the Acana? You need to give it about a month to see if it works or not.

    I had to switch Ace almost 4 times within 12 months until I got to Fromms Lamb and Lentil. He still has allergies, but I'm assuming it's environmental due a positive significant change on shedding and tear stains. He may have an allergy with the duck, or even the pear! I pinned ace's stain on sweet potato cause the last food i tried had more sweet potato and he started getting burgundy paws after 1 back. I believe it was TOW.
    Ace! Come here boy...
    Ace just stares

    I decided to take him off Acana. He's stool didnt look right and he's been exploding late night in his crate. So I put him back to Fromm. I've been reading about Raw Food diets and BARF diet for bulldogs.

    Are you transiting when you are switching foods? Its very hard on their bellies if not, just making sure.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Yes I would add Acana with Fromm for a week but I dont think he's ready for it. Its my fault for being impatient with his tear stains. Thanks

    Okay good. Just making sure Yes, it could def take a while - remember they have to completely get rid of the prior food in their system, and have time to pick up on the new one before you can tell

    My whole heart, Tyson.
