    Default Help with food please!

    My son has a 2 year old English Bulldog…..He has been on Royal Canine food since he was off of puppy food.He started to not tolerate it very well,so my son just changed him to Blue Wilderness Chicken ..He is mixing it to his Royal food in small amounts to get him adjusted…after about 5 minutes he is throwing it up…..what do you suggest? He isn’t on a regular feeding schedule because of the way my son works…can this have a impact on him?His stools seem loose which i feel is from changing his food but how long will this continue?Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated..Thank you in advance Linda

    Linda, I would recommend a bland diet until he is back on track, you could even add some pumpkin (100% pumpkin, not pie filling) to his food to settle his tummy. He needs to get back on track and then slowly introduce the food back to him.

    I agree with Bella's Mom and I would try a food without chicken. You'd be sooo surprised how many Bully's are allergic to chicken. And with any food transition, it's important to go slow..over about a 2 week period. Royal Canin is really a low rated food..so it's good you are changing. We all have food horror stories. It's one of the hardest things to figure out with these guys. When you start the transition...as an example..here's what I do..jake gets 1 cup twice a day..I do 3/4 old..1/4 new for 3 days. Next step is 1/2 old and 1/2 new for 3 days. Then 3/4 new and 1/4 old for 3 days..then all new! If at any ime he has problems..I back up a step and go slower. The canned pumpkin..about 1 tsp each feeding will help his firm up while transitioning. Good luck..if you need any help picking out a food..just ask!

    Hello~I feed all 3 of my Bullies Turkey and Sweet potatoe. I get it at Costco and it comes in a red bag. It's the only thing I can give them that they're not allergic to.

    All the Blue Wilderness flavors contain chicken. Yes, I think he might be allergic to chicken that's why he's throwing up.

    Okay, a lot of people here are trying out Earthborne Holistic. There are 3 flavors in it that do not contain chicken that you can try - Great Plains Feast, Meadow Feast, and Coastal Catch. They're currently selling the trial size for $2.99 in my town with a $3 coupon on the back to use if the trial goes good for you.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Abby throws up anytime she eats food with grain in it. Her doctors think that she is allergic to it. She does fine with grain free.
