    Default Shedding

    Hi,

    Another noob question! Shedding. I'm in the process of switching his food and no change. Went from Proform to Fromm duck. Should I start over and try another flavour? Another brand? Raw maybe?

    If the answer is raw, what's the rule of thumb? How much and how often?

    If it matters, I add ACV, Salmon Oil, and Yogurt to his meals. He's 6 months old & weighs 42 lbs.

    Thanks...

    Bulldogs shed LOL....food definitely has a correlation to shedding. For us it has been a trial and error kinda thing. He did the best with Whole Earth Farms its by Merrick and the Salmon oil.

    How long have you been "switching"? Full switch or mid process?

    Bulldogs shed a lot especially when seasons change. So that combined with the switch could be the ticket. Our vet told us that it take a good 4 weeks to truly know if it food changes or seasonal shedding before we should know.

    Give the new food at least a month to see any results... also, some just shed a lot, some don't

    I use grizzly salmon oil. It works wonders for shedding and sorts of other stuff.
