    Best Frenchie Dog Food?

    Hi there,

    I have a 5 month old french bulldog named Londyn, who we got at the beginning of December.
    When we got her the breeder was feeding her the royal canine for bulldogs or french dogs, and they gave us enough so we could gradually switch to the dog food our Siberian Husky eats ( Grain Free Wellness)
    Well recently I’ve noticed Londyn hasn’t been eating even close to enough every day. And when she does eat she has hornedous gas for a few hours. Now I’m afraid she’s losing weight.

    Is there a better dog food or even raw diet I can switch to? Preferably something my husky would be able to eat as well.

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome! We’d love to see pictures!

    RC is not a good quality food. Some of the high quality kibbles are Fromm, Orijen, Acana and Zignature. If you want to try a dehydrated raw, there is The Honest Kitchen or Grandma Lucy’s. Raw is an excellent choice as well. I give Jax Vital Essentials, Tucker’s and Nature’s Variety. They are all frozen raw and already completely balanced.

    Dogfoodadvisor.com is a good resource.

    We feed our boys Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Turkey. Our English Bulldog has food allergies and that's what works for him!

    Because it's made by Diamond Pet Foods who have had a lot of recalls. They also make Costco dog food.

    We feed ours FROMM grain free Hasen Duckenpfeffer, and have had good luck with it. Low gas too.

    Re: Best Frenchie Dog Food?

    Food should not be the only thing you are looking at...
    Dogfoodadvisor.com is a nice start, but need to understand the ingredients.
    Especially in Bully breeds, Grains, Carbs and added items like preservatives need to be eliminated.
    Also adding things like Pre/Probiotics and a good supplement will really help their gut health.
    Since this question is in Dog Food section won't go into other causes like Flea, Tick, Vaccination and Heartworm meds that can cause itching

    If cost isn't an issue, is definitely choose raw. In your location you probably have some good choices like Steve's Real Food, Small Batch, Real Raw, etc.

    Re: Best Frenchie Dog Food?

    I've gone through a few different options with my boy, including raw. Raw is far and away the best option. Only downside is that it is expensive and takes work to thaw and portion...and takes lots of freezer space. I had to go back to dry kibble this fall because raw wasn't practical and found that Wellness Core Ocean was the most satisfactory option. He actually eats it and his stools are mostly consistent. However, I find he drinks a lot more water and is gassy. When I got my new girl a couple of months ago, her breeder was feeding her raw but made the transition to the Wellness pretty easily.

    All that being said...I plan to go back to raw. In terms of stool and coat and lack of gas, I think it's the best option. I have only tried Reel Raw, which ships from Maine.
