I feed Fromm, it’s family owned from Wisconsin. I feed the all beef. I will not give him anything chicken. He has no allergies at all, our last Pug had all kinds of allergies. I didn’t know chicken is a big reason for dog allergies.

My pug has allergies so she can’t do chicken anything. She does purina salmon. It’s the only one that doesn’t make her ungodly itchy

Make their food it’s better than any preserved kibble garbage….literally tons of recipes online to follow and it’s cheaper than buying food. My dogs have ate ‘homemade’ for 10 years now and the vet says their bloodwork is amazing for senior girls.

My pugs eat Honest Kitchen, and it’s human grade. It’s also grain free because my female pug can’t have grain. My SIL, a vet, recommended it.

I’ve learned that traditional kibble is not a great choice. My pug is on Dr. Harveys human grade dehydrated food (have to add hot water). Moisture is key for digestion. They make an allergy support kind and my 13 year old pug is doing so great. Raw is a great option too! Anything you can buy at a grocery store is terrible.

Nutra complete freeze dried raw. No more allergies, no smelly Frito feet, no dandruff, no black ear gunk, very small feces, more energy. I’ve had 8 pugs and these two are 9 and 11 with zero health issues! Love it, but its pricey. I also boil beef heart and cut it into small pieces for the cheapest best treats ever!

I had a pug who I had from 6 weeks old until over 16 years old. Best dog Ever. He had very severe allergies (most pugs do) and the only food that worked for him was Blue Buffalo grain free puppy and small dog formula. I tried like 15 different brands and that was the winner.

Our Pug just passed in December, he was 16. I always fed him a Walmart brand called Pure Balance, it’s grain free and comes in several different varieties, I also added one pump of Salmon oil for his coat along with DinOvite . He was healthy with no allergies all his life… Hope this helps…

Ive used Blue Buffalo since day 1. I rotate the flavors to keep it interesting. His weight has always been spot on and he’s a healthy happy pug.

We fed ours Instinct raw frozen and he did well on it. Hills prescription diet he was rx after surgery almost killed him and Blue made his urinary stones worse. Each pug is different so you’ll probably have to try different ones to see how yours does on any of them. Try raw, it’s best.

I’d go with what the vet recommends. I use Taste of the Wild for mine. They have many different proteins so your pug never gets bored. They also have a puppy recipe as well and it’s not pricey at all

Real food and nothing but.. kibble killed one of my dog brothers. I thought the dog pushing his brother away from the dog food was an alpha thing. The surviving dog suffered with seizures but that stopped since we quit dog food. Now I know better. Meat and veg and dairy like my family. No grains or fillers. It cost no extra just time.
I’m not investing years into any animal again if I cant knowingly feed it well. Trouble is he knows the difference between and regular egg and pasture raised. so no money saved there. Medical bills and pills. Pay now or pay later. In turn if my dog won’t eat it I won’t eat it lol

My pug is allergic to chicken so we are feeding her Canidae limited ingredient lamb, goat, and venison and she is no longer itchy.
