    Default My new bully!

    Anyone have any tips on getting rid of wrinkle stains?! The previous owners obviously did not clean his face enough!!! Thanks!

    Hi there! Welcome! For tear stains, the first thing is to get on a grain free diet. What are you feeding your baby?

    Nutro max puppy. The previous owner fed him some cheap Purina dog food....so that could be why he has those stains.

    I would start by giving him a grain free diet, like avoderm or Fromm, and get some mal-a-ket wipes. Wipe face and wrinkles daily. Unfortunately nutro-max is not great either, but not as bad as purina...

    We have lots of discussions on dog food and wrinkle care on here, snoop around a bit and you will be shocked at what you will learn

    Glad you joined us, your bully is adore a bull!!!

    we use avoderm and still have the stains I think in some dogs, it's just going to be there no matter what you do. Honestly, I think we've done it all But oh well..we still love him! and.. WELCOME..you will love it here and all the helpful people!!!!

    I have noticed, unfortunately, that Louie is discomforted when I clean his wrinkles. Like I said before, I don't think his previous owners took very good care of him. His skin is red underneath the hair. Is there anything I should know? I don't want to hurt him!! I got him some special wipes especially for wrinkles I hope that helps!

    Thanks for the advice Lisa! I appreciate it all! My husband grew up with bullys but doesnt have much advice or cant remember these important details.
