    I have never heard of just raw eggs as a diet, but you can do some reading on our sister forum English Bulldog News, it's been around a few years and has a lot of diet and nutrition info. Frenchies and bulldogs share many of the same skin issues.

    Here's a link to that forums diet and nutrition posts:

    Hopefully that will help you, please let us know how it goes.

    Bernie

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    Bernie is fed on Wainwrights Puppy Salmon & Potato kibble. When he is a year old I will most likely pop him onto Fishmongers Finest Salmon & Potato kibble (they don't do a puppy food).

    We tried raw feeding for 3 months but his motions never improved. We then tried him on Eden's Multi-meat & Fish Formula kibble for 3 months but it was too rich and high in protein for him and again... His motions were loose.

    Since moving him onto Wainwrights just two weeks ago, his coat has improved, he's calmer and strangely.. his breathing seems to have improved. (He'd been sounding rather rattly over the last couple months). Oh and his motions are PERFECT now

    I feed my dogs Acana Ranchland. My corso has been on that for 2 years and loves it. My new frenchie Jedi seems to love it as well.

    Ruggles, Buster, Katze (cat)

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    I have switched Buster over to NVI Limited Ingredient Turkey because that's what Ruggles is eating. Since the switch Ruggles hasn't eaten Buster's poop, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't. We split them up during Buster's projected poop time.

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    So guys, I've had problems with "expensive dogfoods" in the past with my Frenchie. He is a month away from being a year old. The foods I've given him always gave him diarrhea and when I took him to the vet, the doctor said that those foods were too rich for a little frenchie. I since had him on Iams (which I feel so gross about) but his stools have firmed up since then.

    Still, I feel awful that I'm feeding him such low quality food. Has anyone else had issues like this in the past? Maybe since he's older now he can stomach rich food?

    Maybe there's a dog food specifically made for bulldogs? This has been on my conscience for a long time now!

    The only thing that comes to mind is over feeding, as you would need to feed much less of a good quality kibble vs. Iams. When I fed Iams years ago I think I fed 3-4 cups a day, but with Fromm it's only 2 cups. Over feeding can cause runny poops . Even just 1/8 of a cup too much can do this.

    Oh I should also mention the case above was an English Bulldog, not a French Bulldog, so a French Bulldog would eat much less per feeding.

    How much do you feed per meal right now on Iams ?

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    That's the thing! I never over fed him the rich stuff, I always paid close attention to the feeding guidelines I even tried to change it up but it always gave him severe diarrhea With Iams I feed him about 2 cups of food a day sometimes more sometimes less (depends how persistent he is) He's a healthy 24 lbs. I have been doing research on the site though and it seems like FROMM is a favorite around here. I think I want to give it a shot and start mixing it into the food he eats now.

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    I feed health extension , my little girl is 4x months old and loves it, I did try to do orijen but she didn't do well at all on it due to it being so rich, health extensions is a really good food, but would consider Fromm as so many people that I know use this it and love it.

    Re: What are you feeding your Frenchie?

    I'm just switching over to Fromm puppy. Piper is almost 3.5 months and eats 3/4 - 1 cup of food a day.
