    Default Treats

    Okay, so I have been reading that canned pumpkin is a really good thing to give bulldogs. Is it good for all ages? And how much...about a tablespoon a day? Is it something that is good to give your bulldogs every day?

    Also, what are some other safe, good treats for bullys? I am so scared to try anything new...we had so many allergy issues with Bruno. I tend not to stray from his Fromm salmon and veg food, fromm salmon and veg treats, and peanut butter. I would like to branch out a bit, as I'm sure my boys would like me to as well!

    I'm not sure if its good for ALL ages but I know @Gertie's Mom has been her pups canned pumpkin for a while and they are puppies (use pure pumpkin not the pie filling). For my Samson I just give him a heaping spoon full, I don't measure it actually. I'm sure everyday is ok but I am confident to say that every other day is definitely fine.

    Well that all depends on what his allergies are. I have to be grain free and I try to avoid chicken with him so I have limited options myself.

    Since the vet said Frank was getting "a little TOO healthy", we have tried treats of frozen green beans and small pieces of carrot,which he loves. I also read that a small amount of yogurt can be good (I am assuming just plain or greek yogurt) but we haven't tried that yet. I was thinking of freezing the yogurt and giving it to Frank as a treat sometimes. His stomach has been pretty finicky, so we are trying various healthy options. I would also love to know of any other kinds of treats people have had good experiences with.

    yes yogurt, cottage cheese pumpkin all in 1 tbsp amounts per day or so. Not exactly measured but I use the large spoon for measuring here. May not want to give all everyday but to add in as snacks every day to every other day would be good. Also look into the fromm treats, they would have most the same ingredients as the food so it would be a good snack. Any fruits aside from grapes and raisins of course are good in small amounts also, along with the veggies.

    Those of you who give eggs: Do you just scramble them? How much and how often?

    Pumpkin is great stuff! I got my girls started on it about 4 months ago. I don't give it everyday. I mix in about a tablespoon with their breakfast. On the days that they don't have pumpkin, they get yogart or cottage cheese, or sometimes some combonation of two of those three things (depends on what I have and what we've run out of).

    Scrambled, hard boiled, raw whatever I'm in the mood to give them. Just a couple times a month.

    Gracie turns her nose up at carrots and green beans. She loves yogurt and cheese. Oh and she would eat apples all day if we let her.
    That's all we have tried for her so far.

    Gracie also liked plain yogurt. We gave her that after taking antibiotics because yogurt has the good bugs needed for digestion and antibiotics kills off some of those bugs. Heaping Tablespoon a day till the large container of yogurt ran out.

    luckily our guy loves carrots, will try green beans and some apples soon. It was funny the when we brought Guinness to the vet the other day, the vet gave him a dog bone but didn't even touch it and we gave him a carrot and he gobbled it right up.

    wfd38383: I'm surprised Guinness will eat a "piece" of carrot, or even a baby carrot. When my girls were little they just played with baby carrots. The only way I could get them to EAT carrot was to get the shredded ones and sprinkle them on their food. I still do that with their dinner sometimes.
