Fresh Food for Bullmastiffs

The powerfully built bullmastiff is two dogs in one: a fearless guardian and a big, affectionate mush who loves to lean against their favorite human. With their imposing stature—they can reach 130 pounds of seemingly solid muscle—and protective instincts, bullmastiffs require early, comprehensive socialization and consistent training so their strong will isn’t channeled into undesirable behaviors. Bullmastiffs originated in England and were used to stealthily track and subdue poachers, and as a result of that heritage aren’t inclined to undue barking. The bullmastiff is an ideal companion for a family willing to spend ample time providing training and mental stimulation (and a bit of time cleaning up drool). 

A diet of fresh dog food for your bullmastiff is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and a sturdy lap to land on.

Why fresh is best for your Bullmastiffs

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Bullmastiffs’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.

Protect joints 

Bullmastiffs are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your bullmastiff. 

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your bullmastiff’s health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!

Maintain a healthy weight 

It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your bullmastiff’s odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.

Reduce inflammation (and their odds of cancer)

There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your bullmastiff the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation. Dietary antioxidants—like those found in fresh vegetables— are proven to help decrease the risk of cancer. Processed kibble and canned food just can't supply fresh, whole vegetables like a fresh diet can for your bullmastiff.
