Feeding good quality food is worth the effort. It will nourish growing bones, give that shine to their coat, help keep teeth clean, and maintain a good weight. To keep your little buddy healthy is not that hard. Good verses junk. Easy! Frenchies also can have sensitive stomachs, so avoid any table scraps or rich foods and too many treats. Keep things simple. Their tummy will thank you. DO NOT give your frenchie anything to drink other than fresh clean water. They do not require lactose free milk or any other milk. Just good old fashioned water. Puppies should be fed three times a day, adolescents, twice a day and adults once a day. This is the norm. You may wish to feed your dog twice a day and this is fine as long as you split the one main meal into two feeds and not give two full meals.
Best feeding bowls are made of stainless steel. Plastic and ceramic bowls can harbor bacteria over time. The bowls need to be shallow enough for their short noses and heads to fit into. If you have a fast eater, then I suggest a slow feeder to slow them down. Leave the food down for approximately 15 minutes and then remove the bowl. If your dog has not finished, they do not get anymore until their next feed. Allowing your dog to become a grazer sets them up for being fussy eaters.
French bulldogs love their food. It is up to you to feed them food that feeds their nutritional needs. They are not humans. "Contrary to what they themselves think". So table scraps can upset this nutritional balance. Treats can cause them to become overweight. Evening snacks and sweets can cause their tummies to become upset. Results exploding out the other end. So this one relies totally on you doing the right thing by your dog. No matter how their eyes look at you.
Frenchies can eat carrots which are cut into bite-sized chunks. Carrots are healthy and offer a low in calorie but high in fibre snack that can supplement you dog's diet. Carrots are safe to feed to a French Bulldog raw or cooked. They can also eat cucumbers, watermelon and other fruits and vegetables. So you don't need to be the scrooge. Just keep things in moderation and if that food upsets the tummy, avoid that one next time. You will get to know what they can and cannot handle.
