No Need to Get a Healthy Dog

No need to get a healthy dog when you can just buy a lot of words from a pet food company that says they have miracle food in a bag that will make all that farting, all those skin infections, and all that achondroplastic arthritis OK. 

And that undershot jaw that is so deformed it cannot hold a Frisbee?  No problem there -- they have specially shaped dog food to cure that too!
English Bulldogs are prone to flatulence, due to their "highly active" digestive systems. BULLDOG 24™ is formulated with egg and soy, both very digestible protein sources. Highly digestible proteins, starches, insoluble minerals and balanced fibers help reduce flatulence and digestive upsets.

Sensitive Skin
The skin on the skull and forehead of the English Bulldog falls in dense folds. Routine care, in conjunction with Omega 3 fatty acids found in BULLDOG 24™, promotes healthy skin.  For the Bulldog’s dermatitis-prone skin, we include antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier.

Joint Health
The heavy, compact body of the English Bulldog can put extra stress on joints. BULLDOG 24™ contains supplemental glucosamine and chondroitin. Glucosamine and chondroitin help to protect the joints and Omega 3 fatty acids help to limit inflammation.

Unique Jaw
The BULLDOG 24™ kibble is adapted to your Bulldog's unique (brachycephalic) jaw. The kibble shape is easier to grasp and chew. Bulldog 24™’s wave shape kibble, engineered specifically for this breed’s unique jaw, makes it easier to grasp and encourages chewing. Sodium tripolyphosphate is added to help reduce the accumulation of plaque and tartar by removing extra calcium in the mouth.

Pure genius?   Pure Bull(dog) shit, more likely!

But wait, there's more!
I suppose they modelled the kibble shape on the jawbone of a marketing ass.
Tripolyphosphate? oh yeah, chemical additives

The first ingredient listed is soy??? Why not add chocolate too?

Dogs cannot digest soy. Canine digestion lacks an amino acid necessary to digest soybeans. Because tofu and soybean oil are already processed, they can be tolerated by many dogs. However many low-end pet foods contain soybeans, which can trigger bloat, an often fatal digestive reaction.

And I bet its nice and expensive too.

In case you haven't seen the video advertisement.

I haven't yet been able to bring myself to watch the advertisements for the other breed-specific food formulae.

Here's a question for them: what to feed mixed-breeds, especially the Heinz-57s? Do you pick a predominant breed, or just mix all the small-breed or large-breed types together in hopes that any breed in the mix might get its optimal nutrition?
