OK down into the rabbit hole you go !
if --you can afford to feed raw . do so --ONLY if you can guarantee the source !!! that the meat is E COLI /SALMONELLA free!!!! you know the butcher GREAT---- feed raw !!!! nothing like it for 100% great health of your dog.
RAW is best IF____you can afford it, and the safety is there.
many folks have done so without worrying,but are playing Russian roulette!!!
I wont do that to my dogs!!! and do not forget the vitamins,and calcium. if long term is the goal. good luck, quantities are not hard to figure out.
don't know the butcher-or trust them with your new puppies LIFE--
feed one of 2--that right 2 brands, that have everything the pup will need, Fromm even at 60 lbs,1/2 cup will do 2 x a day!while a pup until 6 months. 3/4 cup 3 x a day!!!!!! then 1/2 cup 2 x a day
or great 4 life>>> that is your only choices for bulldogs. with no life long silent internal damage!!!!
the reason your breeder feeds Kirkland is they are not great smart people who care about the long term effects on their dogs, they do not keep them for more than 4 to 6 years to see the damage they have done on the dogs bodies.
those of us in rescue see the effects on the dogs when we get them in with life long damage to organs, skin, deafness due to ear infections that have gone unattended due t expense of the vets ((who by the way get very little training in nutrition, and take the salesman's word for the exchange of a kick back to the college of their choice , in the form of CASH ) if you need a vet--or a TV ADD to sell food!!!!! run the other way!!!! it is the most costly part of business--a good food doesn't advertise~~~~ they let word of mouth do it.with proof, and a great guarantee on the bag ,that is legal and binding in COURT. as to what is in the guaranteed analysis portion of the ingredient listing. and MUSCLE MEAT as the meat. prime cut grade A muscle meat!!! the roasts and such that we buy -with no cartilage,bones,contents,in it.
if your dog is allergic to a meat in the 4 star section take it back to where to got it((Hopefully via petflow.com -delivered to your door for $4.95 a bag)) the choose another meat base that will work well.for free.
