    well most of the people on this forum feed fromm or nvi. i can personally tell you i have fed my dog like 20 different foods trying to find something she wasnt allergic to. i finally had her tested and now i see why. i want to tell you not to take to much time changing your dogs food as if the food is causing these symptoms then they are only going to get worse the longer you feed it. in other words the longer they come into contact with the allergen then the worse the symptoms will get. brown reddish ear gunk is allergies and possibly yeast and i can tell you that yeast things on a bully is usually caused by an allergy to something. the face issues are probably yeast caused by an allergy and benadryl and such is only a temporary fix. honestly if it were my dog i would get them off the food immediately and feed rice and chicken till they got better. if they dont get better i would be searching for whatever it is that is causing it. please save yourself time and trial and error and get the allergy test. its so worth it. i keep posting this because im trying to keep your dog off the prenisone and antibiotics that will come if this keeps up. i so hope your dog gets better soon.

    We went through hell trying to find the right dog food for out female.. it took almost six months but we ended up going with Taste of the Wild we can intermix the water fowl. the salmon, and the venison and she is still great no runs and not farting. A great thing to use for contact allergies it Apple cider vinegar with mother in it. It has to have the mother I put one cap full in her water dish every morning and she no longer gets tear stains or itchy feet.

What kind of food do you guys feed your bulldog? did you go through several brands until you found the right one? Thank you all for your input! Not sure what i would do without this website!!

    I was feeding these guys NVI salmon for a few months, I thought this stuff has to work, but it didn't. alas, runny poops and red gunk was hard to keep up with.
    Now I feed them TOTW prairie , it has real Bison and Venison Roast's in it. They eat less the, poops are log like and only one has minor eye issues. Griz, his eyes tear wet, but not gunky or thick. I wipe everyone twice a day, Griz more often to keep him dry.

    Also another thing to consider is they type of treat you are giving. Treats an undo all the hard work you do to get them on a good food. Good Luck!
