    The idea behind this Leaky gut syndrome is that due to improper food, or infection or other reasons, the intestinal wall becomes too permeable, and because digestion is affected, partially broken molecules of protein go into blood and cause bad immune overreaction, allergy.
    Treatment after we will be done with antibiotics will be 1. High omega3 supplement 2. Beneficial gut bacteria to restore balance of gut microbes 3. Digestive enzymes to help digestion 4. Glutamine - believed to help healing the intestinal wall.
    I already started with Glutamin supplement and enzymes.
    May be, ask your vet what they think about this leaky gut syndrome. One tip for you, usually in blood samples when dog has real allergy, eosinophils are high, but my dog didn't have high eosinophils, so it wasn't really a true allergy, but rather something else causing skin problems.
    I think that there is no way Bulldogs can eat commercial food. Too special breed. I also strongly believe, that commercial food ruins their digestive system as it is too concentrated and contains too many ingredients. And allergy tests are usually not compelling, as there is no test for all what they include in that commercial dog food. I think rather than going vegan, you should choose one type of meat (I wouldn't go for bird meat, rather beef or venison), choose one vegetable. Meat you can give raw, veggie boil a bit and mash. Cooking doesn't take long, just to cut meat in blocks or mash it in food processor and boil veggies, then pack it in zipper bags and freeze, takes 1 -1.5 hour a week for me. It is not a high price for seeing my dog healthy.

    Here are some links fr you to read, may it will be interesting or helpful for you. You know, I am conventional human MD, and as this leaky gut syndrome is a bit more on the holistic side, first I wasn't too enthusiastic about doctors advice. But it worked magic for me and my pupsie.
