A Pitbull can make a great family companion as any other dog would if they’re in good hands, which would require responsible, intelligent, and dedication in taking care of it. You want to make sure he receives adequate health care – which would include proper diet.
Pitbull is a generic term that describes dogs which has similar traits and characteristics. Some types include Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire bull terrier, American Bulldog, etc. which then implies that they have differences as well when it comes to how one should handle it. But despite the dissimilarities, if one wants to keep them at a healthy state, then it calls for proper Pit Bull diet.
Feeding Your Dog
If you’d want the best for them, making sure that your dog gets that absolute best nutrition, go for high quality dog food. Ask you veterinarians for food recommendations, especially for a puppy. One to recommend would be that you go with raw meat or at least mix raw meat each week to supplement their diet. Make sure you get those which are high in protein (natural ones) and low in additives and fillers.
Pit bulls have the tendency if one would observe to technically not chew what they eat, as if they swallow the whole thing in a bite or two, so try not to limit your feeding time just once, break it down into 2-3 meals per day.
Homemade Pit Bull Food
This may be preferable as well, but you have to make sure you put in the high quality ones kind of meat for his diet. Additives such as veggies will also help but make yourself aware of what and what not pit bulls eat, because like humans, they also have allergies and have different reactions towards food they shouldn’t be fed with.
Some examples of good dog foods(brands) would be the following; The Blue Wilderness Grain Free Puppy Food, Taste of the Wild Salmon Dry Dog Food, Orijen Dog Food, etc.
Have him exercise as part of the routine
Just like anyone, eat more, gain more weight. One would not want his four-legged member of the family get overweight, and be all slow, that’s definitely not one of the know characteristics of pit bulls. So have him exercise. (Not right after eating – which may cause bloating – gastric torsion) Try doing it with your dog every once in a while, that way you both are on the right track on a proper healthy diet.
