I'd like to start a thread to help Frenchie owners & new owners with Frenchie puppies with any health advice, concerns, questions to help one another. Please add anything you health topics you'd like.

The raw diet changed my life for the better!
How many of you currently feed your frenchie the raw diet?
Lola eats Nature Variety Raw frozen Venison.

My vet says she has never seen a frenchie maintain such perfect wait. She has the perfect amount of fat which will keep her healthier longer. And her stomach which in the past was upset every now and again with gas, diahrea, etc. Since she's been eating raw she has perfect very small compact stools. (ok gross i know) but I can't tell you how much that made a difference in the blue bag routine wink

Since she has been on the raw diet, no gas at all. Same with my boston.

I just noticed your neighborhood, I highly recommend going to Pawtrero!

They are so knowledgeable on pet health.

Hi guys, I know it's been awhile since anyone has responded to this post. Just wanted to say the raw food diet is working wonders on Sophie's gas problem! We use the primal raw food diet. She has no allergy problems, so she can eat all types. We prefer to feed her chicken and lamb though.

Interesting! We've been hesitant to look into the raw diet for Dodger because we were afraid his gas would get WORSE. And if it got worse, we'd have to start living outside!!

We've got him on Wellness puppy (dry) with a little Wellness wet mixed in and would (of course) wean him off slowly if we tried something new.

Are there any brands that are better than others? How is your Frenchie's digestion (read: poop) since switching?

Since changing to the raw food diet, Sophie's poop has been very small and firm. When she was on her dry food, it tended to be looser.
