Hello, I have a 1 year old english bulldog, my vet. told me he recommended he eat rabbit. I decided to feed him rabbit for approx. 8 months but for the past 2- months my vet has been out of rabbit , since he told me all meat must be checked and approved. I now have a dog with such sores under his chin and his eyes always look irritated. I now have been feeding him pedigree dry food but this seems like no help. His sores are still consistant and eyes still the same! Any recommendations on what food could help with these two problems? Thanks, George M.

From advice on this site, i switched Orson to DickVanPatten(dvp) Natural balance
duck and potato. Before he was getting sores from his chin and down his belly,
and also loosing his hair down his back with awful dandruff. Now he's shiney, no
sores and with brushing his shedding is minimal (for a bully dog!). He looks 110% better!!
They make different kinds of dvp food, but i chose the Allergy-Free kind cause i thought
he was probabally allergic to beef and chix and to all those other weird ingredients in
dog food. Also he has NO MORE GAS...it is a miracle!!! Try experimenting though, cause
from what i have read on here all bullies are different and have their own special needs.
This is what works for me!! (I also give him fish oil and vitamin E everyday).

It's mostly going to come down to trial and error. There are alot of great food in the list Angie posted. My dogs are doing well on Canidae. What works for one may not work for another. Get him off Pedigree and switch him to a higher grade kibble.

On another message board where people feed raw this link was posted as a resource. One of the things they provide is rabbit. Nobody had any problems with quality but shipping was apparantly expensive. Also if you live in a rural area or close to one the local extension office could probably hook you up with a domestic rabbit supply.

Ginger was battling chronic yeast infections in her folds on her face and in her private area. I cleaned the areas daily with natural baby wipes and water/vinger preparations that kept it in check but then it got worse. The vet we go to precribed a medicated shampoo that keeps the odor down but the infection did go away. We switched Ginger fromRoyal Canin's Bulldogge food to Dick Van Patten's Duck and Potato a month or so ago and her skin folds and private area are almost clear now.

Good luck with your dog food search.

Dog Food

My AB had hives all over him until we switched to a rice-based food. I don't know if any one brand is superior, it probably depends on the individual dog. Dogs are more likely to be allergic to corn or wheat than rice though. I feed mine Nutro Large Breed and mix other stuff (wet food or meat, eggs etc) with it.
