French Bulldog specific dietary needs:

Protein

The companionable French Bulldog can be an athlete or a loafer, making the right protein balance essential to fuel their fun and prevent obesity. French Bulldogs need a moderate amount of high-quality, lean, muscle meats to provide them with energy, strong muscles, and healthy bones, without excess that can lead to weight gain. Ollie uses only human-grade proteins, including lamb, beef, chicken, and turkey, that help French Bulldogs stay lean and feel full after meals.


In addition to the muscle meat from these protein sources, we add organ meat for essential vitamins and minerals like iron and magnesium, as well as non-allergenic plant proteins, including lentils and peas, which are gentle on the French Bulldog’s sensitive digestive tract.

Fat

French Bulldogs may act like big dogs, but they have a small breed’s accelerated metabolism, and require concentrated energy from healthy dietary fats to keep their internal processes humming.  

Ollie includes moderate fat from multiple high-quality sources, including animal proteins, eggs, and cod liver oil, to deliver usable energy and high levels of essential fatty acids—including omega-3—for improved digestive and cardiovascular health, as well as nourishment for the Frenchie’s sensitive skin and coat.

Carbohydrates

Ollie delivers quality nutrition in every bite. We even add blueberries and superfoods like chia seeds. Since French bulldogs can be sensitive to grains like wheat and corn, we use rice in some of our recipes because it is generally well-tolerated by pups. 


While there is no official guidance from AAFCO on carbs, we add only the best to fuel your adventures. From leafy greens like spinach and kale to orange powerhouses like pumpkin, carrot, sweet potato, and butternut squash. In addition, our ingredients are great sources of fiber. 


Nutrient-dense recipes with leafy greens, such as spinach and kale, antioxidant-rich blueberries, pumpkin, sweet potato, and butternut squash power your French Bulldog and help them feel full while eating less, reducing their obesity and bloat risk.

Common Health Problems

French Bulldogs have a hearty appearance, but their health is easily swayed by the foods they eat. These common conditions are influenced by nutrition: 

  • Obesity — Moderate protein and fat from lean animal sources, as well as healthy dietary fiber, can ensure proper nutrition and maintain body weight. Portioned meals regulate calorie intake and improve digestion.

  • Allergies and skin disorders — Diets containing clean ingredients free from preservatives, flavorings, and chemicals, and high in omega-3’s have an anti-inflammatory effect.

  • Food sensitivity — Diets with limited and recognizable non-allergen ingredients reduce inflammation and improve flatulence, loose stools, vomiting, and skin conditions.

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 French Bulldog avoid health issues.
