Thank you for the advice. We are going to try and tackle this one step at a time, so we are getting rid of the treats first and progressing slowly as need... For us it will be easier to pin point actual problems... From what I've been reading the last couple days, I think we will end up having to change her food, but want her to adjust to the treat change first
I will keep you posted!!
When you do decide to treat- Wellness has many pure treats with no corn wheat or soy. most Bulldogs cannot tolerate them . Also chicken is a problem so I use the venison and break the pieces into the size of my baby fingernail for tiny treats. Also I use tiny bits of Crumps died beef and dried liver for high value treats to reinforce new behaviour. There are no additives and they are low calorie. It says approx 10 calories per piece and I break them into smaller pieces so maybe 2-4 calories each. Wait til your Bully is stable then you might want to introduce one thing at a time to see how it is tolerated. Wish you all the best. There is light at the end of this tunnel.
Acidophilus was like a miracle for Tank. He smelled so bad when he came to live with us!we were his third home and he was 7 months old. He's beautiful and smells good now :-)
I give dehydrated beef liver treats from trader joes. They are really inexpensive and are simply 100% beef liver no additives.
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

I have learned sooo much after joining this forum, and I am so GRATEFUL!!! In the last few months we have started Bindie on daily probiotics, started giving her healthy treats, and recently switched her food to a grain free potato free kibble... I am so happy to report that after only 3 days of 100% new food her face rope is yeast free!!! I have never seen her face look so good without be on antibiotics... (She has no swelling or redness in her rope.) I can't wait to see how she's doing after a month on the new food...
This is what we are feeding:
California Natural - Kangaroo and Red lentil
Merrick lamb lung training treats
2 Vetri-Mega probiotics a day
Otis's face looks great right now and I was thinking it was the food switch. (hoping anyway).
Glad to hear your baby is much better, I will look into the probiotics too.
For treats I feed Otis broccoli, apples and ice cubes with blueberries in them.
Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees
