Fresh Food for French Bulldogs
Frisky, bat-eared French bulldogs are as charming as they are determined. They were bred by 19th century English lacemakers living in Normandy by crossing toy bulldogs with ratting terriers, and became a favorite of French ladies. Companion dogs through and through, Frenchies still love spending time with their people, playing, or simply lazing about. Their adaptability, compact size, knack for comedy—and, let’s be honest, that face—have made Frenchies one of today’s most popular breeds among singles and families alike.
A diet of fresh dog food for your French bulldog is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and plenty of love and affection.
What’s the best dog food for french bulldogs?
A diet of fresh dog food for your French bulldog contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your French Bulldogs
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your French Bulldogs’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.Feed Fresh Today
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your French bulldog’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.
Protect joints and mobility
French bulldogs are prone to joint issues, including hip dysplasia and other mobility challenges that can be exacerbated by weight gain. 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 French bulldog.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your French bulldog’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 (a feat for famously flatulent Frenchies!).
Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)
For dogs like French bulldogs prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth. Fresh food also means fresher Frenchie kisses and slobbers!
