Whether they’re an English bulldog or a miniature schnauzer, all dogs love to eat. But is what you’re feeding your English bulldog truly good for them? Here we discuss the different types of food your bulldog can and can’t eat.

Cut back on protein

Protein is a vital part of your dog’s diet, but English bulldogs require less protein than other breeds. Protein is mainly used for growth when your English bulldog is young. But since bulldogs grow quickly, they don’t need that protein for very long. If you continue feeding them more protein than they need, your English bulldog could develop musculoskeletal issues or kidney stones.

Foods to completely avoid

Some foods are toxic to dogs. As such, they need to be completely avoided. Here is a quick list of the most toxic foods:

  • Chocolate
  • Caffeine
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Gum
  • Alcohol
  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • Salt
  • Apricots

Foods that are good for your English bulldog

We’ve talked about what you can’t feed your bulldog, but what about what you can? While you should stick to your typical brand of dog food, there’s no shame in giving your English bulldog a treat every now and then. Here are some basic foods that are safe for your bulldog to eat:

  • Carrots
  • Salmon
  • Peanut butter
  • Eggs
  • Blueberries
  • Popcorn (without salt)
  • Pineapple (in small amounts)
  • Watermelon (no rinds or seeds)
  • White or whole wheat bread
  • Blackberries
  • Corn
  • Green peas
  • Plain oatmeal
  • Sliced apples
  • Broccoli
  • Chicken
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Pork
  • Turkey
  • Beef

We strongly believe that dogs have a very similar diet to us as humans its just that people often get confused to the amount of food. A dog weighs considerably less than adult people so the amount ratio needs to be paid attention to.
