    We just got a french bulldog pup, shes currently on dry puppy kibble by Fromm.

    We were talking to our vet, and they reccomended for our frenchie, that we should find a food with:
    -Grain-Free
    -Over 30% protein
    -Glucosamine
    -L-carnitine
    -Chondroitin

    I know that our Fromm exceeds the protein, but i’m having trouble finding a food that has all of these in it. And when i was at the vet i figured i’d ask after we checked out and didnt see her again, we’re going back in two weeks, but i’m just trying to figure this out now if possible.

    Thanks!

    Hi Kevinh219 –

    It sounds like you have a knowledgeable vet – it’s always nice to see a vet recommending a more species-appropriate diet rather than the big name veterinary brands like Science Diet and Purina. 🙂

    Rather than looking for a food that has all of these items, I’d suggest just finding a few grain-free puppy foods with over 30% protein that you like and adding the glucosamine, chondroitin and L-carnitine separately. Most supplements present in commercial foods are just for marketing anyways, the food rarely contains high enough levels to have any therapeutic effect. Glucosamine, chondroitin and L-carnitine can all be purchased from human supplement stores/websites – Swanson Vitamins has great prices. Just check with your vet to get recommended dosages.

    I don’t know about all the ingredients, but Wellness Core Small Breed meets a lot of those criteria. My Cavaliers are eating it as their dry now and Lucy is eating the Small Breed Healthy Weight (not gf).
