Unlike cats, dogs are not strictly carnivores. They may eat a combination of meats, some grains, even fruits, and vegetables.
Most dog food is manufactured as dry food or wet canned food, and high-quality manufacturers adhere to strict regulations that other lesser quality manufacturers may skirt.
Dogs, though they tend to be less picky than you or your child may be, are just like people; they have individual tastes and preferences.
Your bulldog may like wet food more than dry food. While wet food is more comfortable to eat, there are added benefits to dry kibbles. Depending on your bulldog’s age, dry food is less messy and can be used in multiple ways, such as a treat during exercise and training.
When you are researching the right meal plan for your bulldog, consider your dog’s age, physical fitness, and preferences as crucial in the decision-making process as the ingredient list.
The dog food brand should have a list of ingredients approved by veterinarians. The better brands will offer certifications, offer transparent food labels, and provide some other guarantees such as a money-back opportunity.
Your dog has a unique personality just like you do, and their food choices and preferences can change over time. For example, the dry food that you feed your puppy may be ignored by your fully grown bulldog.
There are a few different reasons that your bulldog may appear to be fickle with their food.
One reason is that as they age, so do their taste buds, especially if they’ve been “spoiled” with eating scraps or other human food.
While it’s a nice gesture to give your dogs treats, human food isn’t composed for the optimal nutrition of a dog, and as we discussed, the seasonings we use may be toxic for your dog.
Another problem is that bulldogs as a breed are prone to developing food allergies over their lives. There are two types of allergies that a bulldog develops, food intolerance and food allergies.
