American Pitbull Terrier-specific dietary needs


The original nanny dog, the American Pitbull Terrier is a wonderful and loving dog around their family. These stocky dogs are gentle with children, but can become rambunctious during playtime, and they need plenty of high-quality protein to fuel their play. Without adequate protein, your American Pitbull Terrier may have subpar muscle mass, in addition to weak joints and ligaments.

The lean protein sources Ollie uses for your dog’s meals are packed full of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks for strong muscles, bones, and joints. Because they thoughtfully source chicken, turkey, lamb, and beef, your American Pitbull Terrier may be less likely to develop severe hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, or cruciate ligament injuries.

American Pitbull Terriers, especially white ones, are notorious for skin and ear issues. To help combat skin disease, Ollie provides clean fat sources in the form of cod liver oil and chia seeds. These superior ingredients are bursting with anti-inflammatory benefits and rich omega-3 fatty acids, and will help soothe your American Pitbull Terrier’s itchy skin and inflamed ears. 
Moderate fat in your dog’s diet also provides concentrated energy, which is the perfect fuel for your American Pitbull Terrier’s athletic nature. And, if your pooch prefers to be a couch potato, Ollie has that covered, too, in perfectly portioned meals that are designed to give them the correct calories and nutrition.

Since your American Pitbull Terrier may be sensitive to some of the more inflammatory carbohydrate sources, like corn and wheat, Ollie chooses gentle carbs for their easy digestibility. Sweet potatoes, peas, pumpkin, and butternut squash provide slow-burning energy, while being gentle on your pooch’s digestive tract.
Carbohydrates also help promote smooth digestion through the dietary fiber in Ollie’s superfood ingredients. Kale, spinach, cranberries, blueberries, and carrots are packed with fiber, which helps move things along in your pup’s gut, and may lead to less pooping! And, all these colorful ingredients are overflowing with antioxidants, an important component of disease prevention for American Pitbull Terriers.

Common health issues that can be mitigated with proper diet

The American Pitbull Terrier is generally a healthy, robust breed, although they can develop a few serious medical issues. A well-balanced, high-quality diet can help manage the following conditions: 

  • Hip dysplasia — Keeping your American Pitbull Terrier lean will minimize joint stress and pressure. This can be accomplished by providing human-grade, gently cooked, protein sources. 

  • Skin and ear infections — American Pitbull Terriers are known for developing skin allergies, but their itchy, irritated skin can be soothed with essential fatty acids, like the omega-3s found in cod liver oil and chia seeds.

  • Sensitive gastrointestinal system — If your American Pitbull Terrier has a loose stool or seems excessively gassy, their sensitive gastrointestinal system can benefit from a diet that’s free from fillers and artificial colors, flavorings, and preservatives. Ollie offers diets that contain gently cooked, whole-ingredient foods for easy digestibility. 

Your dog is your best friend, and you want to do everything possible to keep them healthy and happy. Packed with fresh ingredients and high-quality nutrients, an Ollie diet may help your American Pitbull Terrier avoid health issues.
