    Default New from Idaho

    Hello Everyone,

    About 4 weeks ago I adopted an English Bulldog from my local Animal Shelter. His name is Butch and he is approximately 2 years old. I was told his reason for being there was he chased horses. Thankfully, I do not own any horses. Butch is my first Bulldog. When I picked Butch up from the shelter, his ears (bleeding), mouth, feet and eyes were bright red and he had really bad gas. I did some research and found that it was probably yeast and that I could get it under control with his diet. That is when I decided to start feeding him real food. His diet consists of venison, rice, carrots, zucchini, spinach, peas, chicken liver, chicken hearts, topped with 3 Tbs of yogurt and sprinkled with ground chicken egg shells. Am I missing something in his diet that he may need? He is 60lbs and I feed him 1 1/2 cups twice a day. His skin is now pink, he rarely has gas and his ears look great! Another issue that I knew nothing about was his tail pocket. Every time he went potty, he would sit down immediately. I did research on that and found he also had an infection, or yeast there too. I am pretty sure I have that under control now. I am keeping it clean with medicated wipes, the infection seems to be cleared and he no longer sits after going potty. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this community. I still have lots to learn. My Butch is a wonderful addition to our family, his love for us truly shows.

    Welcome Lisa,

    Butch is a cool looking BD. Post up some more pics. I really like his colouring. Good on you for rescuing a dog and making the effort to clear up his health issues. Looking forward to seeing more of Butch.

    Hi Lisa. Welcome to EBN. Butch looks fantastic and it is a tribute to your family carrying for him. Looking at his pictures he also has a small nose rope that you should read about. Jewel and Bentley as well as many bullies have them. Butch's is not that pronounced from what I see like my Bentley's. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to post a thread...you are never alone here. Jewel and Bentley say hello.

    You're on the right track so keep doing whatever you're doing as its working for Butch! I also cook for Nyala but I don't give her rice. She's on turkey and all sorts of veggies n fruits. The yogurt I give it as a snack. I keep her off anything that is grain. But that's me.

    Great photos!
