|I recently adopted two adult bullmastiffs whom were free-fed generic dry dog food from Sam's club, a local wharehouse store. Alll of the research I have done suggests that bullmastiffs should be fed in 2 - 3 small meals to prevent bloat and obesity. So, I now feed them (todays example--the meats and veggies change):
AM - 1 cup dry food topped with 1 egg (raw) with crushed shell, about 1/3 cup chopped cucumber, and a raw chicken meat about 1/3 cup as well.
Noon--1 cup dry food also with egg--topped with about one ouce of cheese bits and a strip of bacon.
PM--tonight I will give them 1 cup dry food only--moistened a bit with water
Does that soundabout right?
I know that they can't have onions, grapes, raisens, cooked meat. I would aprpeciate diet advice as well as a list of what they cannot eat.
Bella seems to be a bit overweight and hobbles around like she is 50--this seems odd to me for a 3.5 year old dog.
I would also love dry food advice--Peoplein teh westcoast (U.S.) would be appreciated so that I can find it out here.
