    Try Avoderm food. We have had good look with it


    It took me a year to figure out what food makes my Bostons happy. Went through em all till I found medi cal gastro intestinal dog food. That did the trick after months and months of investing! They dont do well on high protein. Also go easy on detergents,fabric softeners. They irritate my 2 Bostons. I completely stoped ising anything with a fragrance.


    We ran into something very similar with our Pack. Turned out to be the detergent that we were using. The girls all sleep on baby blankets in their kennels. We ended up using a washing detergent made for babies to wash their blankets in. Not sure of that will help you guy’s or not, hope so …….

    my 10 month old Boston, Sophia Grace, was born with red Mange and has had two rounds of Ivermectin. She seems fine now. Have you had a skin scrape for red Mange. Sophie is clear now and has a beautiful coat. She is still on Sciance diet puppy and about 16 lbs.

    I found that NuPro works the best for my Boston. He is now nine and looking good.


    I feed my Boston Blue Buffalo with a bit of Stella Chewy’s crumbled on top. He has a beautiful shiney coat and tons of energy.

    My Boston’s about 3 and a half years old and has been on Acana for about 3 years now. He looks great, as energetic as a pupppy and has a super shiny coat! His vet always tells me that he looks like a picture perfect Boston! He’s a healthy 28lbs of lean muscle!

    We have used Taste of the Wild dry, no grain, and also some Blue Buffalo Wilderness canned … chicken, duck and chicken. Our 4 year old Boston, Annie, was a picky eater as a puppy. She liked the Taste of the Wild, so we kept her on it. She seems to maintain her weight well and has abundant energy to play.

    Ours are on Canidae doing great! But I also love Fromm used them for a long time only switched cause we have a Dalmatian and he eats ALOT so had to find a food that was still quality at a little lesser cost

    Angela Weldon

    All my boys are Blue Buffalo Boys!! Even Maximus Allergenic!

    Barbara Glenn

    I feed Fromm’s. It’s great for any type of dog- they have several formulas.

    Science diet puppy!

    Anything grain free Bostons are prone to allergies and digestive issues with grains they just cant digest it as easily if the first 3 ingredients are by product of some sort an grains its a no no look into blue buffalo or taste of the wild or grandma Lucie their are many different brands that are grain free grains also tend to shorten their lives yes grain free is a bit more but its worth it in the long run for extra time with the fur babies .


    Fromm Grain Free!

    Nicole Blakely

    Merrick grain free… I’ve had my Boston on it since he was a puppy. He’s 1 now. No allergies. No tummy trouble. He’s happy and healthy ❤️

    Just switched from Nutro Ultra (loved it but got pricey), to Blue Buffalo.. My BT loves it but it’s giving him gas..

    Jeanie Shelton

    I like Nutro Ultra, and mix it with Science Diet. After the first year, adult NU and SD Sensitive Stomach, because BTs tend to be gassy.

    I got a 6 mos old rescue that was severely malnourished and used Wellness puppy. He did wonderfully, became a beautiful dog. You can’t gone wrong with that or Blue Buffalo.


    I’ve fed my Boston on a mix of Hills and Royal Canin with boiled chicken. He is 7 months and is looking fantastic.
