i couldn't have said it better..... when we boarded the dogs last week, they were fed something other than RC and man, the poop keeps rolling out....the yard is disgusting and they've only been back since Thursday evening....bearsmom said:Bear was on DVP Duck & Potato and did great. I switched him to Royal Canin Bulldog about 2 months ago due to the fact that he likes to inhale his food and the RC is specially shaped for the bulldogs mouth so they will chew. It has worked great for that. Also his tear stains have disappeared and he has like 50% less poo which is great.
I know a lot of people on the EB forums that have had great success with RC. But there are some that had trouble. DVP is great as well though. It all depends on the dog. Eveyones different. You just have to figure out what's best for your pup.
1. I feed Kate, My AB, Royal Canine the boxer forumla and she does wonderful on it. Different dogs react differently to different foods. But I can purchase this food at Petco/Petsmart. The foods you listed are not good foods. They are filled with fillers that just go right through the dogs body and add no nutritional valuedezekiel said:hi, i'm new to this forum and i see all these dog foods listed,1 where do you get them? I've never heard of them, i've been giving my EB purina or pedigree but she seems to have lost interest in them. And i bought her a kong toy but she has no interest in it, i see where people stuff it with all kinds of stuff, this is our first EB and am not sure what foods she can have, she could have baby food ??????? i've been experimenting with cottage cheese since she seems to have lost interest in her dog food, and i've tried using 2plain, vanilla or banana vanilla yogurt, she loves the yogurt, by itself... but not the dogfood... she loves scrambled eggs, also by itself ... 3and i've been told that they cannot have meat, just a nibble once in a great while, doesn't the canned dog food fall in this area as meat ? ,4also she has like a "stain" going down her face from her eyes, is this a " tear stain" and can we make it go away? This is our first bulldog and i seem to be floundering on what to give her and how to handle her. She's 9 months old, and does not play well with our doberman also a female, so we keep them apart all the time.. the breeder we got her from said there would be no problem with having these two breeds together, well, i've got news for him... i read that they need extra calcium for their bones, about how old do they need to get to before i stop the yogurt/cottage cheese at each feeding? 5Also is bananas good for them? 6She gets right in your face and demands a banana, sometimes i feel like i have to hide out in my room to have one in peace and quiet ! thanks lots for any help !
