We just picked up our 61/2 month old english bulldog (clair) from the breeder and she is a chunk!!. we had to take her to the vet today because her stitches from her nuetering procedure were bleeding a little and looked to be swollen!!!. Well turned out she was ok and nothing a little antibiodics can't cure, now here is the "but" she is 45 pounds!!!!!! and she is only 6 1/2 months old!!!! so here is the deal she has been taken off puppy food and we tried to keep her on the same brand of food which is pedegrie. So here is my question what brand of diet dog food should I give her, and is pedegrie good stuff or is there better stuff and if there is better stuff is it ok to switch her??? any help would be appreciated!!!!

I would not put her on a "diet dog food" just yet. Just switch her from puppy to adult and she should be OK.

Where's the pictures?!? :D

Yeah, I was going to add that puppy food is usually higher fat (because they say pups need that fat but that's not
usually the case once they hit 6 months old). I think proper nutrition is much more important than that added fat.

I would also watch what the proper feeding amount is for the weight he should be, you may be accidently feeding
him too much. I know pedigree contains animal fat in it to make it taste good to them, remember you are what you
eat. High quality food you have to actually feed less and your dog will get more nutrients (and smaller turd).

Thanks!!, so no "diet dog food" or "weight control food" :? just put her on adult "a+" food? As for her activity :shock: wow I knew bull dogs were lazy but I don't think she feels good from her surgery, because she does not do a thing if I want her to move anywhere I have to pick her up and put her there :) so I hope she gets a little more active. Its only been since the 21st that she had her surgery so she is still heeling im sure
