    Default 8 week old english bulldog puppy food

    Hi guys,

    im from hawaii and here we dont have much selection. We do have petco but i dont want to give my bulldog royal canin. Which brand should i get? Blue Buffalo, Solid Gold, Wellness, Orijen, Earthborn. I was quoted 56 dollars for a 20 lb bag of earthborn puppy formula. It seems very expensive for this stuff. The lady also told me not to buy the big bags because they will spoil if you dont use them in around 6 weeks or so. Please guide me to the right direction please!

    If you do reccomend something, can you specify the exact bag to get?


    thanks,
    Steven

    hey guys , doing more research i found they also sell taste of the wild , which is what im leaning towards now. I can get the 28lb bag for $60. i guess i have to pay the premium for my bullies health! if you did or are using TOTW puppy formula please let me know your results! Oh no now i just seen a recall for the dog food but it says nothing about hawaii being affected. I was also researching nuvet plus , this stuff is really expensive! Do you guys use nuvet plus and nujoint plus?

    ok im really lost with all this, ive looked on the guide and seem to be lost in the world of dog food. Fromm would be my first choice but we dont have it here. My puppy is eating eukanuba which i really dont like but the person i got the puppy from gave me the food. please help me choose one from the list, blue buffalo, avoderm, merrick, artemis, welness, TOTW, orijen, earthborn and natures variety. in the mean time i will keep browsing this forum.

    thanks everyone

    We were feeding Brutus solid gold lamb/rice and he did horrible on it! Thank goodness to this site we switched to Fromm .... I would say Earthborn out of all of those choices! I have never tried it though..

    This is the ingredient list and the garlic is way down on this list....
    Earthborn Holistic Puppy Vantage Natural Puppy Food: Ingredients

    Chicken Meal, Whitefish Meal, Oatmeal, Ground Barley, Ground Brown Rice, Rye Flour, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols, a source of vitamin E), Canola Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols, a source of vitamin E), Tomato Pomace, Ground Flaxseed, Apples, Blueberries, Carrots, Peas, Spinach, Garlic, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Taurine, L-Lysine, DL-Methionine, Beta-Carotene, Calcium Carbonate, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Niacin, D-Calcium Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin A Supplement, L-Carnitine, Vitamin B12 Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Ferrous Sulfate, Biotin, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Calcium Iodate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Manganese Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Dried Lactobacillus Plantarum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Casei Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product

    Out of the choices you have I think this is a good one...I will tag @desertskybulldogs she will be able to give you more insight on what food to choose...I started Brutus with Solid Gold Lamb Rice and he had soft poo..We finally switched to all stages at 7 months and its been great since! Food is a trial and error..Hope for good results

    My Bullies are allergic to chicken so I use nature's domain from Costco. Its turkey & sweet potatoes works wonderful.

    Gizmo and Hershey forever in my heart

    Default Re: 8 week old english bulldog puppy food

    Everything I'm reading (advice from these boards and other forums) mention that Bully Puppies do not need 'Puppy Food' as it is so high in Protein (30-32% (?) ) Hershey was on BiJack - but I do not know what protein he was on - we have used TASTE OF THE WILD (ToTW) with good success with Gizmo, but the recalls are scaring the CRAP out of us. We picked up Blue Buffalo 'Wilderness' Chicken - One of the most important things is for it to be Grain Free in my opinion.

    Blue Buffalo does tend to make the bullies a little Gassy (we confirmed that, on a 3 hour trip from our grandson's 1st birthday) the pup slept in my wifes lap the whole way... but WHEW ! ! ! roll down the windows NOW ! LOL
