    If your bulldog does not look fat then you are not overfeeding your dog. My bully is 65 lbs.

    You will know if your dog is fat because his belly will hang down from his body. Also, you will feel a flubbery layer in the widest part of his ribs. Also, you will see that he has the "barrel" look when looking at him from above where his waistline is the same width as his body.

    I know it is to each his own when it comes to feeding your dog. I'm just worried that many people seem to be giving their dog supplemental veggies. Veggies work differently in a dog than in a human. You give your children lots of veggies - even an all veggie diet if they eat a lot of them with enough protein. But you need to limit the amount of fruit and veggies your dog eats. They can't process it as efficiently as humans can. It puts stress on their system. And definitely avoid raw veggies. A dog has a short digestive track and will not be able to break down raw veggies properly. It's the same when they eat grass outside. You will notice that the grass comes out in their poop still looking like grass.

    If you look at the recommended dog food on this site, you will notice that the food on that list has a limited amount of plant matter and heavy on animal meat. It would not make sense to then upset that rating by adding more plant matter as a supplement...

    Well he doesn't look like a barrel from above and he loves playing in the back yard and walks.
