Feeding Your Bulldog Puppy Right: Crooked Star Bulldogges and Purina Pro Plan
At Crooked Star Bulldogges, Chris and I understand the importance of proper nutrition for puppies. That’s why we not only recommend Purina Pro Plan to new puppy owners but also feed it to our puppies to ensure they receive the best possible care. Providing the right nutrition for your growing Olde English Bulldogge or French Bulldog puppy is crucial for their optimal growth, development, and overall well-being. With numerous puppy food options available in the market, choosing the best one can be overwhelming. That is we have done the homework for you and strongly recommend Purina Pro Plan for your puppy’s nutritional needs. Our Feeding Schedule Chris and I, at Crooked Star Bulldogges, have been using Purina Pro Plan with our puppies for years with great success. Our puppies start out at 3 weeks of age, being introduced to a warm mush mixture of Purina mixed with puppy milk replacer. This is done for a week or so to get them started on solid food while still providing essential nutrients. Once the puppies understand the eating process, we transition to simply wetting their food with warm water, making it easier for them to consume. We initially feed them four times per day and gradually reduce the feeding frequency. By the time the puppies are ready to go to their new homes, they have been accustomed to eating three times a day, ensuring a smooth transition for both the puppies and their new families.

Make Your Own Dog Food!
With the price of dog food continuing to rise, Chris and I started looking at our options. What we found was the less dog foods contained items that we did not want to feed our dogs. So our middle ground was to use a med/high quality kibble and replace the wet food with our own. We literally broke it down to the cost per ounce, example…Diamond Performance is 36.99 for a 40lb bag was about 5.8 cents per ounces and last us about 1 week. (36.99/640oz = .058 cents per ounce). In addition, we were using 21 cans of wet food at a cost of 1.59 – 1.99 per can. Our total cost for feeding 7 dogs (mix of mature adult and less than 1 year old dogs) was about $75-90 per week. So here is what we have come up with and it make about 25 days of wet food and extends our dry food by several days. Ingredients: This can be modified. Example, if you only have 2 bags of green beans, use those and maybe put 1 back of lima bean (or what you have in your freezer). 20 lbs of chicken thigh quarters (just bought them at Walmart for 10lbs $4.96) 5 20oz containers of chicken livers (Walmart $1.29 per container) 3-4 lbs apples (.99 per lb) 12 lbs or so of sweet potatoes (.79 per lb) 3 bags frozen green beans (good time to clean out your 1/2 bags in the freezer) ($1.28 2 bags sweet peas (same as above) 3 packages frozen spinach blocks (88 cents per box) 4 lbs of carrots (1.48 lb) 5 lbs of potatoes (2.97 bag) 4 lbs brown rice. I ran out so the last 4 or 5 containers has whole wheat pasta. (1.18 per /lb) 2lb barley (2.00 per lbs) Step 1 : Cook all of your chicken just like you were making chicken soup. I put salt, pepper, thyme, celery seed and maybe some poultry seasoning. Remove from pot and let cool. Once its has cooled, removed all bones. Check, check and double check for bones. Step 2: Cut your sweet potatoes, carrots into large chunks, peel and all. I cook it in the chicken broth I just made. Step 3 – Cut your russet potatoes into small pieces and boil. I typically boil these in a separate pot because my large stock pot is already full with Step 2. Step 4 – Cook rice and barley as directed. You can cook to together or separate. Step 5 – Cut your apples and cook with the chicken liver. Once all cooked, I use a blender to blend into thick mixture. You will probable have to add some broth. This will become you thickening agent. […]
