Fresh Food for Dogues de Bordeaux

Stocky with a massive head (said to be, proportionately, the largest of any breed), the dogue de Bordeaux is a historic French mastiff with 12th century ancestors bred to hunt. Its popularity waned after the French Revolution, until the 1989 Tom Hanks film Turner & Hooch made good use of the DDB’s expressive furrowed brow and revived interest in the breed. Despite the intimidating stare and broad build, DDBs with consistent training have sweet dispositions and enjoy hanging out with—and guarding—their human family. Comparisons to teddy bears are common. On a grooming note, these dogs are prolific droolers, so frequent towel swipes will keep those cinematic jowls clean.

 

A diet of fresh dog food for your dogue de Bordeaux is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and petting of their furrowed brow.

Why fresh is best for your Dogues de Bordeaux

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Dogues de Bordeaux’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.

Protect joints 

Dogues de Bordeaux are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your dogue de Bordeaux.

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your dogue de Bordeaux's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!

Maintain a healthy weight 

It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your dogue de Bordeaux's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.

 

Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer

There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your dogue de Bordeaux the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation. Dietary antioxidants—like those found in fresh vegetables— are proven to help decrease the risk of cancer. Processed kibble and canned food just can't supply fresh, whole vegetables like a fresh diet can for your dogue de Bordeaux.
