    I have three bullies and I feed two of them Fromm HasenDuckenPheffer which is a duck and rabbit protein as one of my babies is highly allergic to everything and needs a novel protein. My other bully gets itchy from it so he is on Zignature Whitefish and is doing great. It is an uphill battle to find the right food. Good luck

    Ok so see my post above. Fromm HasenDuckenPheffer is excellent for allergies. Really Brutus profusely vomits, gets terrible ear infections, and has runny eyes and itchies from everything except this food. I would highly recommend it.

    Do not feed Hills or Royal Canin. Look at the ingredients and you will see they are all crap. Since you have just started the pork and peas, I personally would stick to that for at least a couple of weeks to see how he does. Jax gets bison and rabbit but he is raw fed. Zignature has a venison and kangaroo and some other proteins that people on here have had luck with. They are a limited ingredient as well.

    But for now, I would see how the Fromm goes before you start switching things up again to see if he has any issues.

    Novel protein means something different than what you have been feeding, I assume. I would not feed Hills or RC if it were free. Unless you have noted something adverse with the Fromm P&P you are currently feeding then there is no reason to switch. Pretty much any Fromm food that is well-tolerated by your Bully is good food. We feed Acana Duck and Pear to our Adult dogs and Orijen Puppy to the kids. The advice to feed a single protein at a time is good.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Novel protein is an uncommon protein like bison, venison, kangaroo, goat, etc.

    We’re amost on week 2 of switching foods! I decided to do the transition slower than normal due to Sampson’s stomach issues so we’re not completely 100% feeding FROMMs yet. His stomach issues still seem to be happening with the loud gurgling in the morning followed by not eating and feeling well. Does anyone think I should find a second vet and get a second opinion on what might be going on or should I wait this out until he has had some time to adjust to the new food.

    IMO - I would just make the full switch at this point and give it a couple of days to see if stomach settles.

    My Brutus has a very sensitive stomach so when I do a food switch, I always give him a week of boiled sirloin and rice to kind of reset his system and then I start the new food.

    Have you ever thought of trying: giving a "bedtime" snack at night, so his stomach is not so empty in the morning? Giving him a famotidine a little while before breakfast,to settle his stomach? You may have already done these things but This could be done, no matter what food you decide on.

    I have not tried either of those things yet! Good idea suggesting the bedtime snack though. Maybe I can give him a little
    Bit of food before he goes to sleep because he does sleep a lot and usually
    Sleeps from 5:30 at night to 5:30 in the morning haha!
