Hi Wendy,

That’s a good question these days, there are so many great foods
out there. And so many who make claims to be great but are not!

Many dogs have food allergies these days, so it’s important to get
a single protein source.

For example, my puppy Archie is allergic to chicken. You will know
if he or she’s allergic because they will have soft stools or throw up
or get little bald spots.

The most allergic food reactions come from:
beef, soy, and chicken, in that order.

Be sure to get a puppy formula and feed according
to instructions on the bag per weight.

Here are some highly recommended brands:
Innova
Innova Evo
Wellness
Canidae
Blue Buffalo
California Natural
Pinnacle
Prairie
Royal Canin

You can mix in some canned with some dry if you like, I’d
stick to the same protein source.

You want to look for a single protein source (chicken or my favorite
lamb, or turkey, or duck,etc) so if he develops an allergy, it will be easier to
identify.

I hope this helps. Please email with any more questions.

Your Bulldog Pal,
Jan

    We currently feed Ruki Innova Adult. What advantages or disadvantages should we consider if we are thinking of switching to EVO Large Bite? One of my biggest concerns is that the pellet size of Innova Adult is too small, and Ruki refuses to chew her food…

    Re: Ruki,

    The small pellet size is good for the reason that they don’t chew their food.

    And I agree that bulldogs are a large breed packed into a small container and benefit from large breed foods that help the joints.

    Innova has a brand called California Natural Lamb Meal and Rice that’s very good. They also make Evo. Canidae is another very high quality brand.

    You can always give a glucosamine supplement although I don’t think it necessary until a dog is older.
