    Here is a website that I highly recommend to any Dog owner. The information here was instrumental to me in conquering "Maximus'" horrible Allergies and systemic infections due to his history of bad dog food from the Breeder. http://www.greatdanelady.com/article...ini_course.htm.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE allow me to send you a coupon for a free bag of AvoDerm Dog food. While it is not the best of the best, I have two bulldogs who do great on it that otherwise have skin issues. They also love it, it has a special smell unlike any other dog food I have ever tried. Get her off Science Diet and switch to AvoDerm, and no more table scraps. Unless you give her straight chicken, beef, ect without seasonings and BBQ sauce, it is bad for her. If you want to give her table food, cook up some baby carrots or green beans, again- no seasonings. You can also give these to her frozen as a treat.

    The canned gravy is probably the worst of all. Not only is it costly for you to add that to her dog food, it is probably the main source of her problems. If you must use a 'topper' to get her to eat her food, try some canned food made by some of the manufactuers on the top of our Dog Food Ratings. If you go to a Petsmart, you can get Blue Buffalo canned food, I have used this before and it actaully has real good stuff in it. It looked like something a human could eat. Here is the Dog Food Ratings: http://www.englishbulldognews.com/DogFoodAnalysis.html

    Or 'resident' food expert here on English Bulldog News, @Lindathedogsmaid says these are the best dog foods for bullies: Fromm, Nature's Logic, Nature's Variety & Merrick, in that order.

    The number one mistake people make with their bullies (MYSELF INCLUDED!) is their diet. Molly was diagnosed with allergies and a bad skin infection, it was horrible. You can read her story here: http://www.englishbulldognews.com/Do...n_And_Now.html

    I totally know you think you are doing special things for her and giving her the best by doing what you are doing- but I promise you - a new diet will change her life.

    This is also one of the reasons so many bullies end up in rescues, shelters and the streets because people give up on them, not knowing they really need a good diet.

    One more thing, when you switch foods, switch slowly- don't do it overnight. A little more of the new food at a time.
    I just got off the phone with Linda. Thank you for suggesting her. I am now very excited to improve all of the dogs diets. She was so kind to research Bella's EPI needs and guide me individually on her. What a blessing! Fromm here we comme!

    it sounds like Lily has a yeast infection over most of her body, ears,tail, paws, she must be on 500 Mgs of antibiotics for at least ten days by mouth from the vet. and in the mean time you can mix 50/50 percent APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND WATER --(((( buy it by the gallon for a few weeks,)))) and for the next 3 weeks bath her once a week in a baby shampoo, (it s a PH balance that is OK for dogs) and follow it up with a body rinse of the vinegar/water mix-take a cloth and saturate it with the mixture and get between toes, and face creases, tail, too. AND USE A BABY EAR SYRINGE TO SQUIRT it into the ears TWICE A WEEK ---------THEY WILL never have a YEAST infection again. smell like pickles but no yeast infection again.
    ----now it also sounds as if she has a food allergies too. if this doesn't clear up to stay clear, please email me for food advice, I am the fussiest food person you will ever know. I feed only the best top two foods. the most common cause of skin,foot,ear, issues is food allergies.
