A French Bulldog is a small breed dog that does not need or have much bigger needs in its diet compared to other bigger dogs. However, this does not mean that the same food you give to your 10-pound Chihuahua can also be given to your 8-pound Frenchie. Although they’re both small breeds, their dietary requirements are different. You can’t feed them with the same meal because it may result in nutritional deficiencies that will lead to serious illnesses later on.
French bulldogs are popular pets because of their rounded and smooth faces which make them look like cute stuffed toys or baby dolls. They come in brindle, fawn (tan), black, white, silver/blue merle, and tri-color. This breed originated from England and was once used as a fighting dog.
Tuna is a type of fish that’s available in various forms of processed food, such as canned tuna meat, pouches packed with tuna salad, etc. Tuna can also be served fresh or dried/salted for preservation. It has recently been known that a chemical compound called Mercury which can cause brain damage to humans and animals can be present in high quantities in some types of tuna because it’s naturally formed by the combination of other chemicals found in the ocean water where it lives on.
However, mercury-laden tuna can easily be avoided if you choose not to eat them. As long as you avoid the types known to have high mercury levels, then there’s no need to worry.
Tuna, no matter what form it is in, can be ingested or fed to your French Bulldog. The only thing you need to make sure of is that the tuna should be fresh and include water as its main content. It should also not contain any added seasonings or spices except the natural taste of fish itself which will make it an excellent treat for your pet dog.
However, there are some cases when its consumption must be avoided. If your Frenchie has food allergies, then she may already be allergic to tuna as well because they’re both derived from sea creatures with virtually similar characteristics. You also have to check if her food allergies affect her organs, especially her liver because tuna contains high levels of purines which somehow affect the kidneys and the liver after prolonged intake.
If your French Bulldog is one of those with fish sensitivities, then she may develop itchiness, rashes, and sudden vomiting after eating even cooked tuna. Some dog owners also reported that their pets’ digestive systems were adversely affected by ingesting certain types of tuna resulting in diarrhea and vomiting.
Finally, it’s best to avoid feeding your Frenchie with uncooked or smoked tuna because it’s known to contain a harmful bacteria called “salmonella” which could cause serious health problems if ingested by your pet.
It is not recommended for you to give fresh or canned tuna as a food treat to your French Bulldog as they all contain Mercury which might pose a health risk. It has also been reported by some French Bulldog owners that their pets were very sick or suffered from diarrhea and vomiting after eating cooked tuna. However, there are still some who claim that fresh tuna meat is a great treat for their dogs without experiencing any adverse reaction.
Before giving your pet dog a food treat that you want to buy from the market, make sure first to check if it’s a new type of product or seems suspicious in any way. Research about its contents and consult with your veterinarian before actually giving it to your Frenchie.
