French Bulldog > Frenchie Food

I have finally settled on giving my Frenchies Innova Evo wet and dry food. It is grain free. The holistic vet I take my dogs to says it is the closest you can get to feeding them raw food. My dogs don't like raw food, so I have settled for this. They seem to like it. I have always been concerned about their diet because both dogs have bad skin allergies. But the only thing that has helped that has been the holistic treatment from their vet.

As far as the throwing up, I had a friend whose Frenchie was having that problem, and it turned out that her dog had an elongated pallette and needed surgery. Does your dog throw up after playing, or just after eating? If I were you, I would have your dog checked out by your vet. Vomitting could also occur if your dog has swallowed a foreign object which can block the stomach. My dog swallowed a squeaky ball.... It can happen.

Thanks for all the comments. I had the dogs on raw food for a while (Steve's Real Food), but then Lucy was having throwing up issues for a while, and the doctor told me to stay away from raw dog food. However, her throwing up was probably due to her ingesting bits of Nylabone, which she has not had since, and she has not thrown up since. So, I will consider putting them on raw food again. It is such a delema....

I am curious what all the French Bulldog owners out there are feeding their dogs, and what has been successful. My dogs have been eating Eagle Pack Holistic wet and dy food because they have skin allergies, but they don't really seem to like the food, and their allergies are not much better. Any ideas?

Dog Health > Hip Dysplasia / Femoral Head Ostectomy

It has been 3 months since Taxi had the FHO surgery and he is doing great. It took a long time for signs of recovery, and for the first couple months I was really questioning the decision I had made. But now he is doing great, and you really can't tell he had the surgery. He very rarely limps anymore, and he has a fun time running and playing. I am glad I got over the fear and had him get the surgery. Thanks for all the advice.

Our sweet Taxi has been diagnosed with early signs of discomfort from hip dysplasia. He is too small to get a full hip replacement, so the surgoen has said he needs a Femoral Head Ostectomy. He is two years old and in good health, so the doctor said he should recover well. I would like to hear from anyone who has a dog that has undergone the surgery and if they can tell me what they think of it all... how their dog has recovered so far... if they think it is the right thing to do. There is no other option as far as fixing him, so I see no other choice since letting him live in pain while his hip deteriorates is not an option. But it just seems like such a horrible thing to do to a dog, and I would really like some info before I move forward. Thanks!!!
