    I am in need of some help!! We have rescued a 6 yr English Bulldog- she underwent surgery to have her ACL repaired and needs to lose about 10 pounds. However, she also has terrible arthitis in her back/spine- where her two vert. never propertly formed. She is receiving cortizone injections- but I need to focus on helping my LAZY bulldog lose some of this weight to help with her issues. Anyone recommend any GRAIN free food for an English Bulldog- that is 52 lbs- that will help with her weight??

    We adopted a dog who should have weighed about 23 pounds but weighed 43.7. She had arthritis and hip dysplasia. We used Wellness Core’s reduced fat food, giving her the amount of food for what she *should* weigh. Good luck!

    Hi jodysworld33 –

    I’d checkout The Honest Kitchen’s Zeal formula – it’s low fat and high protein. Dehydrated foods are also much less calorie-dense than kibble because of all the water you add. Any low fat canned food would be a good option as well.
