Pitted Fruits - (Peaches, Pears, Cherries, and Apricots) The pits of these fruits contain small doses of cyanide, which can be fatal to smaller dogs. Also, if the pit is swallowed whole, it may become lodged in the intestinal tract, where the blockage will have to be surgically removed. Raw Fish - Raw fish, especially salmon, can contain parasites, usually fluke larvae. The dog consumes the fish, and the larvae hatch in your dogs digestive tract, attaching themselves to his intestinal walls. Symptoms can take up to a week to exhibit and usually mimic other canine diseases, such as distemper or parvovirus. The hazard here is misdiagnosis by the veterinarian, leading to an improper or ineffective treatment. If you choose to feed your dog fish, be sure to cook it thoroughly to kill any bad critters that could be hiding inside.
The feeding station should be adjusted so that the bowl reaches just below your puppys neck so that he is not straining to reach his food. When your English Bulldog puppy eats, he should be able to stand in a natural position while easily reaching his bowls. This is why an adjustable feeder can be so helpful! There is a wide variety of materials from iron to wood for the stands and plenty of choices for bowls. Browse around your local pet store or online to find an elevated feeding station that is perfect for your English Bulldog puppy!
Elevated dog bowls allow dogs to eat at a more natural stance, keeping their neck, back and hips in a standing position without putting undue stress on these joints. They also keep your puppy from swallowing too much air while eating which can cause indigestion, vomiting, choking and bloat which can be deadly. This is particularly important for English Bulldog puppies as they have a deep chest cavity that is more prone to bloat than other breeds.
