Your profile says Alpo. If that’s what you’re feeding please get him off of that food. Absolutely no good, no meat as main source, colour chemicals etc. Simply stay away from Purina, Royal Canin, Science hill, Alpo etc.....Get him on a higher quality kibble like Acana single protein bags. Start with the Duck n pear one. Better would be a raw diet... But if you can’t yes Acana is the way to go.

Try to find her a good quality food that she likes, like [MENTION=15310]helsonwheels[/MENTION] suggested. Other good quality limited ingredient dog foods include Zignature, and Earthborne Holistics Venture line. I would strongly discourage adding toppers as bulldogs have the personality of forever remembering anything special you do for them and then expecting it forever.

You didn't mention if Hazel has any health issues that could be related to food allergies such as ear infections, hot spots or licking paws. If so, you may want to switch to a dehydrated raw product like Honest Kitchen, or even better, to a commercial frozen raw.

It's extremely unusual for a bulldog to be a picky eater, unless you train them as such with adding a lot of toppers.

[MENTION=16884]Dollys Owner[/MENTION], toppers are great if it’s raw organs but definitely on a higher quality kibble.

I wouldn't add the raw organs as toppers then because the dog won't eat without toppers after a while.

How is she doing? If recently rehome— she needs a month to settle in and about three months to fully be comfortable.

Get a high quality kibble, one protein- try duck first.

Zingnature, Acana, Fromm, earthborn holistic. Are a few options
