Healthy French Bulldog Diet: 5 Tips For The Perfect Diet

Looking for a high-quality dog food is one of the most difficult aspects of pet ownership. With French bulldogs, you will also want to ensure their food does not cause digestive or skin issues. In addition, you don’t want any fillers or chemical ingredients, like dyes. We’ve made a list of five healthy French bulldog diet tips to help you get started right.

Feeding Your French Bulldog

You will want to split up your Frenchie’s daily calories across two to three meals every day. Cheap foods include a lot of fillers and potentially harmful ingredients, which may negatively affect your dog’s health. Below are five more diet tips to help you choose a top-quality meal for your French bulldog.

1. Look For Whole Meats

Meat or fish of some kind should be the first ingredient in your dog’s food. A healthy French bulldog diet will put protein first. The protein should have an animal source, either a meat or a meat meal. Chicken, beef, and salmon are all common proteins in high-quality dog food.

2. Look For Healthy Grains

Many cheap pet foods use corn, wheat, and soy as filler ingredients. Though some vegetable content is healthy for dogs, these are not the best sources. These cheap fillers may cause digestive or skin issues in your French bulldog. Look for barley, oatmeal, brown rice, or sweet potato instead.

3. Balance Their Calories With Activity And Age

French bulldogs tend to be a lower-activity breed. This combined with a large food intake may lead to issues with obesity. Most French bulldogs need about 30 minutes of mild to moderate exercise a day. If you have an inactive or senior French bulldog, you’ll want to consider reducing their caloric intake.

4. Give Them A Shallow Eating Dish

Because of their unique faces and short muzzles, French bulldogs often have trouble eating and drinking from normal-sized dog bowls. A shallow dish for both water and food should help them.

5. Consult A Vet For Frequent Digestive Issues

Quite a few French bulldogs have gas issues, often caused by their food. Wheat-based grains in a French bulldog’s food may be causing this problem. Focusing on a diet with whole ingredients should cut down on digestive issues in general. However, if your dog has frequent or recurring gas issues, talk to your veterinarian. They may be able to prescribe a digestive-friendly diet for your pet.
