What is the best food for your French Bulldog?
By choosing the best food for your French Bulldog, you can ensure they are getting the right protein and nutrients to thrive. French Bulldogs are sturdy, compact dogs, full of courage, yet with clown-like qualities. They are known to be vivacious, deeply affectionate and intelligent. Physical characteristics include a short smooth coat, bat ears and a short tail, with these cute and desirable traits it’s no wonder they are one of the most popular breeds in the UK today.
French Bulldogs are built to eat a nutrient-dense, high-protein diet brimming with quality animal ingredients, and that’s exactly what ACANA’s range of biologically appropriate dog food provides. Nutrients they need with a flavour they love.
Why is your French Bulldog’s diet so important?
French Bulldogs can be susceptible to a number of medical conditions and whilst you can’t prevent an issue caused by hereditary trait, you can ensure your Frenchie is as fit and healthy as they can be.
Obesity is one of the key contributors to health problems in dogs in the UK and Ireland. Choosing the best food for your French Bulldog will help them to maintain a healthy weight. While dogs and cats have no nutritional requirement for carbohydrate, conventional dog and cat foods often exceed 50% carbohydrates. These compounds are quickly absorbed by dogs and cats, and do not feature the nutrients your dog or cat needs to thrive.
Free of gluten, potato, tapioca, and starch ingredients, ACANA features farm-fresh vegetables and fruit, such as whole pumpkin and butternut squash, that provide fibre and other nutrients that your Frenchie needs to thrive.
ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet. We believe that less processing is better. That’s why up to half of the meat, fish, poultry, and eggs that go into ACANA are delivered fresh or raw in their most nourishing form, providing the flavours and goodness that all dogs instinctively crave.

Does your French Bulldog get all the nutrients it needs?
Although French Bulldogs look very different from their wolf ancestors, their digestive systems remain much the same. They are equipped with sharp teeth, a short digestive tract and a body evolved to metabolise protein and fat from meat.
Finding the best food for your French Bulldog can be a minefield. At ACANA we keep it simple with our Biologically Appropriate philosophy – mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meat that nature evolved dogs and cats to eat.
In nature, there are no synthetic food supplements, and wolves and wildcats derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein, liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals, and cartilage and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.
In her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole fish, fowl, and game to perfectly meet the dietary needs of dogs. When looking for the best food for a French Bulldog, you should look to match those dietary needs. Our WholePrey foods precisely mirror the natural diet, incorporating meat, organs, and cartilage or bone in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally and completely, without the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients.
When looking to find the best food for a French Bulldog, we recommend looking at the ingredients. These should be clearly displayed on the packaging of all pet food products. Asking three questions will help you compare the foods.
Owners should look for at least 50% meat content in their dog’s food. That means your Frenchie will be getting enough animal protein and fat to help them maintain strong bones and muscles.
By fresh we mean meat preserved by refrigeration only, without artificial preservatives or chemicals. You may be surprised to find most commercial pet foods do not contain any fresh meat at all, instead favouring cheaper alternatives that may have lost some of their nutrients. Some manufacturers may use terms such as ‘freshly prepared’, ‘deboned’ or ‘dehydrated’. These are very different things.
A good dog food will also include a variety of meats from different animals unless you are feeding one specifically formulated with one protein source for sensitivities.
