Things to Look for in a Snack for French Bulldogs
Below are some things to keep an eye out for when you’re looking for the best snack for Frenchies.
The first thing you should look for is a snack that contains high-quality ingredients. Look for snacks containing natural ingredients with as few artificial additives as possible. You can also look for snacks containing high-quality proteins.
Since Frenchies can be prone to health problems including allergic reactions, choosing something high-quality is even more important.
Frenchies can be prone to weight gain which is bad for their health. Choose snacks that are high in nutritional value and low in calories.
Fit for Purpose
Consider what you want the purpose of the snack to be. For example, if it’s a training treat, a bite-sized low calorie snack will be best. There are lots of different options so take your time to decide what’s best for your dog’s needs.
Correct Size for Your Dog
Ensure the snack you choose is the right size for your dog’s mouth so they can chew it comfortably. Check the description and the reviews for guidance.
Correct Texture and Strength for Your Dog
Think about what sort of texture will be best for your dog. If you want something long-lasting, a harder, tougher chew will be best. If your dog has a sensitive mouth or has fewer teeth (for example, older Frenchies), a softer texture might be better.
Some treats have additional benefits, such as being good for your dog’s skin, coat, joints, dental health, or immune system. Think about what will benefit your dog.
Snack Safety Advice
Always choose a treat that’s the right size and strength for your dog. Avoid rawhide and bones as they can cause blockages and other health hazards. It’s a good idea to supervise your dog while they’re eating a new snack to reduce the risk of choking.
