Re: [engbulldog-3] Olde English Bulldogge Diarrhea

Folks, be mindful that studies have proven that feeding your dog a regular diet that contains grains (wheat, corn, white rice, soy) can result in several skin issues, and over time, tumors.  By nature, canines do not usually consume carbohydrates in significant amounts.  Bulldogs are already prone to several skin conditions as a breed, so you might want to keep this in mind when selecting a dog kibble.  Note the first ingredients cited in your dog food brand's list of ingredients...if wheat gluten and such are listed, you might want to consider another option.

I feed my bulldogs a raw diet, mixed with a grain free kibble (Wellness CORE)...not once have I ever had issues with diarrhea.  Better quality food, like for humans, results in better nutrition, higher absorption, less stool, and more compact poop.  Feeding lesser quality dog food products full of fillers that aren't absorbed by your dog's digestive system merely results in poorer nutrition quality and more poop.

Also, much of the grain free kibble out in the market now are comparable to the price points offered by other premium dog food brands.  I go to Pet Food Express in the SF Bay Area where they have a broad selection of grain free canine products.

I gave Royal Canine to Percy and his poop was always super soft. So I switched to Pedigree for large adults and mix it with some canned Alpo and his poop is nice and firm now. Changing diets often can make your bully's poop soft, too. Be consistent. They like the same food every day.

Well stated in the 2 previous emails below.  I can appreciate a sense of humor, when it's appropriate. 

In addition, it's insensitive to mock somebody who's trying to find answers with regard to their pet's health. 

That being said.....Scott, we switched our bulldog from Royal Canine to Blue Buffalo Fish and Sweet Potato recipe because he was having the same issues.  It seems to be working, although I notice that somebody else replied stating that they switched to Royal Canine and it worked for their dog.  So, if Royal Canine does not work for your bulldog, try the Blue Buffalo dog food.  It's suppose to be among the best.

Now I have a question for anyone out there who has information regarding seizures in bulldogs.  Our bulldog started having seizures that seem to come in clusters.  We just picked him up from the emergency pet hospital where he had to spend the night for the second time in the last 2 weeks.  They've put him on phenobarbital, twice a day.  This is the second cluster of seizures that he's had in the last 2 weeks.  The seizures that he experienced last night were less violent then what he had 2 weeks ago, but still occurred in clusters.  Has anyone experienced this with their bulldog?  I've done some research online, but found that some information conflicts with other information regarding which route you take for treatment.  Some say it's mainly diet that causes the seizures and that medication won't help.  Many websites state that the seizures are controlled with phenobarbital.  I'm setting an appt. with his regular veterinarian to see what her recommendation will be.

Any information is appreciated.

Thanks,

Diane

Very well said! I completely agree. While it is "annoying" to be receiving everyone's response, Scott did nothing wrong.
As a matter of fact, he specifically stated that he doesn't know what to do anymore... doctors don't know what is wrong with his dog and he can't find answers on the web, thus he turned to fellow bulldog owners and got scolded for it... It's a shame ... wasn?t this one of the reasons the distribution list was created in the first place? :)

I understand that everyone is sick of this thread and it has always been a problem with this group (even a couple of years ago). People hit reply and replied to everyone on the list (like I just did). However, this IS for everyone on the list...

Scott has not continued to reply back and forth on this matter and everyone seems to be giving him a hard time for asking an honest question. He is not the one spamming all of us with info. about his dog's issue. All he did was ask a question, period.

It seems the problem lies with all the other people on the list, people lazily sending responses, that have not figured out how to use this group and respond to emails. So again, please read the bottom of this email to learn about how to reply to just Scott if you have some real advice for him.

Otherwise, save your own time and everyone elses... and just hit delete. Fictional stories about Philly Cheesesteaks, beer, and bulldogs are actually much more annoying than someone asking a real question and trying to get real feedback on it. I understand we are all tired of getting these emails but there is no reason to spam everyone further with goofy stories and berate Scott when he has done nothing wrong.

Again here are instructions as to how to reply:

If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])

If you would like to just reply to an individual, please copy his or her email address and compose a new email addressed to him/her.  -OR-

Another option is to hit " FORWARD" and type the person's email address in, then fill in what you would like to say to him/her and send it off. If you use the forward message all of the original text that individual typed will be sent along with your response... so it is similar to replying.

Scott,
 
A few suggestions that might help.  Buster's Philly Cheesesteaks in north beach is my bulldogs favorite.  His solid, large, perfectly cylindrical fecal matter is always a joy to clean up.  Also, a nice Pabst Blue Ribbon to wash down that cheesesteak is makes his bowel movements smell wonderful. 
 
Please, I am sure we are all interested in hearing more about Bosworth's diarrhea.  I am not sure if I will sleep tonight knowing good ol bosworth is up crapping his brains out. 
 
Thanks

Hi,

I have a 2 1/2 tear olde english bulldogge. He will not poo solid for about 1 year now. I have tried boiled chicken, white rice, different dry and wet food. No results. I had him tested for parasites-negative. Any suggestions?  Is is not completely runny, just more soft and not solid like it should be. The vet really hasn't been any help and I have googled everything.

Thanks,

Scott and Bosworth (My Bulldog)
