    Default Dog food

    Please tell me what you think about me feeding my bulldog a dog food call Dimond Naturals with 2 spoonfuls of blue wet dog food. I mix the wet and dry and she loves it. The dry food is grain free and wheat free. Any suggestions?

    A lot of people here use the Fromm's 4 star Grain Free version. My take, if your dog's digestive is meshing nicely without issues or allergies, then go for it. Different strokes for different bulldog folks. If he is not showing any allergic reactions, no licking, no redness then, the food works. Good Luck to you.

    Please post pics of Shadow.

    How long does it take for an allergic reaction to show up?

    It can take minutes, hours or even a day or so to show up.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    i advise against the benadryl unless it is needed. Benadryl is not vitamins. You are unnecessarily overmedicating the dog.

    Now, a lot of people here also invest in nuvet vitamins (nuvet labs). I strongly advise that you consider this. It is beneficial for their coat and has antihistamine to ward off allergies.

    If the food is working then let it be.... why are you giving Benedyl with each meal? Is Shadow itching or red/pink face?

    I give it during certain times of year due to environmental allergies (grass, weeds, tress, etc)

    Benadryl should only be used "as needed" -- not everyday. We only use it for a severe breakout, or if the allergies are really bad. Please cut back off the benadryl unless its really needed. You don't want to suppress or even get her body immune to it, or else it won't be effective when you REALLY need it. Look into Nuvet - those are great daily supplements, that include a antihistamine.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Were you giving the Benadryl for a preventive measure to make sure there wasn't a reaction to the food?
