THE CARE & FEEDING OF YOUR FRENCH BULLDOG
Along with good genes, we believe that good nutrition & health care are the key to raising bright, robust young puppies into happy, healthy, long-lived adults. Therefore, we spare no expense in these areas. All of our adult dogs are fed dry Pro Plan Adult Sensitive Skin & Stomach formula. The main ingredient is salmon, with rice & oat meal. It's easily digestable & helps with the legendary Frenchie gas problem. We give it a squirt of the Shed Defense Max, which is an Omega 3 product. It keeps their skin healthy & their coat really soft & shiny. We also add in Brewer's yeast tablets. Healthy for them, as well as being a natural flea & tick repellant. We then add in some Superfood Complex, which is rich in antioxidents & probiotics. Lastly we stir in some Purina One canned meaty food for some extra flavor. They all absolutely love it, and the results are shown in their musculature, & their thick, shiny hair coats. Our puppies get the same great start. We feed the babies the same mixture starting at 4 weeks old. Instead of the adult foods we use dry Pro Plan Puppy Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice formula, & mix in Pro Plan Chicken & Rice puppy canned food. We sometimes add a bit of chicken or beef broth to thin it down. Our dogs all drink the well water we have here on the farm, & we add in a dental rinse. It keeps the placque down, & makes their breath smell great. As far as treats go, they are allowed to only chew Nylabones or Kongs when they're unsupervised. No rawhides, bullysticks, or pig ears unless we're watching. We don't want them to choke. We also allow our dogs to eat human food, as long as it's healthy, & not too fatty or spicy. We keep them away from chocolate, grapes, & onions.
As far as grooming goes, a bath in an oatmeal shampoo every few weeks is good. Wipe out their ears, & trim their toenails. Make sure you keep the folds on their face clean too.
Great veterinary care is super important. We absolutely love Drs. Jernigan, Noeller & Baucom & the staff at Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt in Summerfield, NC. & highly recommend them. They are well worth the drive, & you couldn't ask for better care. We love our dogs, & they are so worth it. Yours is too!
