They are two opinions on this subject. It's better to decide what will benefit your dog the most.
Raw feeding is growing in popularity as a lifestyle plan many people have chosen for their dogs. It involves giving your French Bulldog raw meat and fish instead of processed dog food or leftovers. But not just meat… also fruit and vegetables.
French Bulldogs can eat raw meat. As many pet owners are aware, French Bulldogs will eat pretty much anything they can get their paws on. Like all dogs, you could put your French Bulldog on a raw meat diet and might even see benefits due to the lack of allergens that can arise from commercial food.
Raw food can cut out many of the unnecessary ingredients and preservatives added to shop-bought food that can have negative effects on your Frenchie’s health.
However, there are also some risks, including food poisoning, unbalanced diets and even difficulties in chewing and digesting certain raw foods.
Many mainstream veterinarians disagree, as does the FDA. The risks of raw diets have been documented in several studies published in veterinary journals.
Lisa M. Freeman, DVM, PhD, headed an evaluation of raw dog food diets published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Association in 2001. She cautions pet owners against them, saying that many dog owners are choosing raw diets based on online myths and scare tactics about commercial pet food.
Since Billinghurst’s book, Give Your Dog a Bone, was published, several other types of raw dog food diets have emerged, including commercially processed raw food diets that are frozen or freeze-dried and combination diets that use blends of grains, vegetables, and vitamins that are mixed with raw meat purchased by the owner at the grocery store.
Studies of raw pet food also have shown bacterial contamination. The FDA issued suggestions in 2004 for manufacturing raw pet food more safely, citing concern about the possibility of health risks to owners from handling the meat. A 2006 study of 20 commercially available raw meat diets found that 7.1% contained a type of salmonella. E. coli bacteria was found in 59.6% of raw meat diets. These bacteria can also be shed in the feces, leading to a potential source of human exposure and infection.
Dog owners often include raw eggs in their dogs' natural diet. So, if you feed your batpig with the BARF diet my advice is to avoid eggs, especially in the case, he suffers from an allergy. On the other hand, eggs shells can be beneficial since they are high in calcium.
One of the essential risks when feeding a dog with raw eggs is a salmonella exposure if you come across a rotten egg. Generally speaking, eggs are a great source of protein and can be given to highly active dogs. You'll undoubtedly agree that Frenchies don't belong to this category.
