Never had the problem. What do you mean by "natural foods"?? Most vets recommend "Science Diet" which is also a corn based food but vets have worked a deal with the company and they make a killing off it.

Some foods advertise as natural, holistic, and grain free. There's nothing wrong with that necessarily. Different things work for different folks. The issues they have seen may be from people switching overnight instead of gradually transitioning from one type of dog food that may be more corn based to those which is a different composition.

Wish I had that luxury. With an indoor bulldog I'm forced to feed something that won't give her flatulence cause you can't stay in the house with one that does.

You mean like a "shyt eat'n dog"?? Had a few of those.


Son had a bulldog. We were amazed at how house broke he was. Till we left him in the garage with a big pile of food and a tub a water while we were gone for three days. Came home braces for the mess. Garage was clean as a whistle.
I realized we got us a shyt eater. And a sneaky one at that.
