Bulldog Diet

 

Bulldogs are utility dogs originally bred for blood sports such as bull-baiting. They are known for their courage and are popular as mascots. Their natural diet would have consisted of natural meat and bone combined with scraps.

 

The amount and type of food will depend on the individual dog. A complete and balanced diet is recommended to include natural meat and bones.
