I have an english bulldog. He is about a year and a half old. We got him as a little puppy. When he started to grow up, he developed what appeared to be allergies and skin issues. He would get raw in between his folds no matter how well we cleaned him and kept after him. He would lick and bite his paws and they had a red yeast in between them.
We eventually found a pet food that worked for him. His allergies went away. The redness between his paws that caused him to constantly lick and chew had cleared up. His face was now clear and smooth like it should be. What kind of food did we switch him to? Well, its still a processed dog food, but you actually know what the ingredients are. It's grain free and full of real food. All of the ingredients are either fish (his favorite) or fruit or a vitamin supplement (just like his daddy). The key is the removal of the grains and "extra" ingredients. Now, he can play in the stream and bully the other dogs all day long. All thanks to him being a paleo puppy!
