    The oil from both actually repels water, which is what causes the issue. The moisture from the oil won't cause fungus or anything like water does! Izzy is probably too young to have very deep wrinkles, but it's something you should consider doing! I just apply it after I clean the wrinkles. And yes, I put the Vaseline on her little nose too!

    The best place to go for information is under the food ratings ,thread on this site, it helped me a lot. Some of the best choices for foods that are listed there are Fromms Beef Fritata, I switched my 2 to that brand, and they are doing really well now. Other foods are Wellness, Blue Buffalo, Go Natural, Avoderm, and Orijen. You can also ask Cowsmom, or Desertskybulldogs , as they have a lot of experience and knowledge regarding nutrition for Bulldogs, they helped me a lot. It sometimes takes a few switches, I switched 4 times before we found a food they both tolerated, but we finally did

    I agree that switching to a higher quality, grain free food is a good place to start. It might not be the food, though. Environmental allergies can also cause eye watering, nose boogers etc. that cause moisture in the wrinkles and a smell. I have Tonka on Fromm-beef fritatta and he gets a sour/musty smell in his wrinkles on and off too simply from the moisture in them due to his bad environmental allergies. Just another factor to consider.

    Every bully is different. Fromm Beef Frittata is what we feed HRH and got her to stop being stinky. But it's possible Chancho is allergic to something in it and you'll have to find something else. Check out the variety of foods available on the home page in the food ratings article and try to choose something in the 4 Star or better range.
    An allergy panel might be in order to find out what he's allergic too as well, but since he looks like a puppy, you might have to wait until he's older to get that done.
