The French bulldog is one of the small dog breeds that many people love, but also one of the most difficult to care for properly. It is a dog that demands constant and daily care, especially when it comes to food and hygiene. But you should never forget exercise and vaccination. You also have to be very careful with their ears as many tend to have otitis and muzzle folds. Being careless can cause diseases and conditions in your pet that will cost you time, effort and money.
Feed the dog while maintaining balance
The Frenchie dog, like the vast majority of dogs, needs a balanced diet. This diet has to be taken care of through the feed and, therefore, there are numerous types and brands of specific feed for the breed. Bulldogs in general are a breed that tends to get fat on the one hand because of their physical shape and on the other because they are not exactly very athletic dogs. Depending on age, the French bulldog will need a specific amount of food. It is appropriate to divide it at least twice a day, to facilitate their digestion since they have many gases. It is very important to take care of their weight, between 12 and 15 kilos since if they gain weight they can have serious health problems.
Do not over feed him
On the other hand, they are dogs with a sensitive stomach. So you should also avoid giving them food that they don’t eat in general (that is, not giving them human food, much less the remains of your food). Also avoid eating things on the street, as they tend to vomit when something goes wrong with their stomach. You can feed your Pug and Frenchie dog a little low-fat turkey or a piece of watermelon (they love this) from time to time. Nothing happens as long as they are allowed food for dogs and not dangerous food for them.
Feed them and reward them
You can give him moderate rewards to educate him but without exceeding the indicated amount. Some bulldogs need a specific diet not only to take care of their weight, but also due to allergies. The vet will tell you which food to avoid. If you decide to change their feed, we recommend that you do it little by little since sometimes it does not sit well with their delicate stomachs.
