Frenchies have an extensive range of health support needs and require specific types of supplements to help with everything from keeping their skin healthy to protecting long-term vision.

Give your French Bulldog one Soft-Chew once a day with food.

Good Supplements allow dogs to obtain optimal health and maximize their quality of life. More specific benefits offer:

  • Help to support normal immune system function and maintain normal histamine levels, which may help French Bulldog allergies.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids and fish oil help Frenchies avoid dry skin and maintain normal skin moisture content.
  • Help capillary support health in the eyes, which may help reduce the chance of French bulldog eye problems and vision problems.
  • Help to address itchy and dry eyes in Frenchies associated with seasonal allergies.

Most dog parents will tell you; French Bulldogs are not among the healthy breeds. In fact, French Bulldogs are one of the more challenging breeds to keep healthy due to the shape of their faces, eyes, bodies, and overall sensitivities to food and allergens. Even early on, a French Bulldog Puppy is much more sensitive to allergens than, say, a Labrador Puppy. French Bulldogs are brachycephalic, which means they have short heads or "squishy faces." This is important to always keep in mind because an allergic reaction that constricts breathing will have more severe consequences than long-nosed dogs who don't already have their airways partially constricted. In short, French Bulldogs are not among the healthy breeds. Like English Bulldogs, Frenchies have wrinkly skin, but they also have large and exposed eyes and are more susceptible to food allergies, contributing to possible inflammation.

There is much information on the benefits of feeding French Bulldogs foods with anti-inflammatory properties and probiotics; this has caused a spike in dog owners preparing home-cooked meals for their French Bulldogs. Recommended foods include blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, spinach, sweet potato, and carrots- all of which are great sources of antioxidants like vitamin a and vitamin c. When a feeding regimen becomes too demanding, supplementation steps in by providing those antioxidants and ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties; like health supplements, dog vitamins can also supply antioxidants. Still, unlike wet or dry dog food and multivitamins, good supplementation goes above and beyond using active ingredients like fish oil to help maintain French Bulldog skin health. Lutein, to protect their eyes from juvenile cataracts, glucosamine for joint health and turmeric, to combat inflammation; the cause of so many allergic reactions, to name a few. Even if your Frenchie doesn't have a health condition, if you want to help your French Bulldog or French Bulldog Puppy become more muscular, your Frenchie must exercise, which means they must have proper joint support. Muscles don't come from dog food and can't be developed by simply taking a multivitamin. Reducing inflammation is the primary goal of any Frenchie health care plan, whether you provide joint support with joint supplements or open airways to reduce the chances of breathing constrictions or gut health for digestive problems. Supplements can help improve the quality of life by promoting functional health support. Whether through supporting immune system function, maintaining normal eye function, or helping maintain healthy skin, there is no question about whether or not French Bulldogs can benefit from supplementation.

Common Supplements include glucosamine, vitamin e, chondroitin sulfate, Fish Oil, and Probiotics. Less often, you may see Calcium because it takes different enzymes to break down. French Bulldogs, especially French Bulldog Puppies, have very sensitive stomachs, so be cautious with supplements containing glucosamine, as they tend to cause stomach upset if taken without food. The type of supplements you should give should offer particular types of health support unique to Frenchies. One of the critical things to focus on is reducing inflammation in French Bulldogs. Reducing inflammation is key to maintaining homeostasis. Inflammation is the cause of most discomfort health issues a French Bulldog or French Bulldog Puppy will encounter over their lifetime. Any supplements that have anti-inflammatory properties can be beneficial to Frenchies or any dog prone to allergies. Whether you are walking down the aisle at PetCo or saw Zesty Paws on Amazon, look for a few key items:

  • 1: For Maximum Efficacy, Choose a Supplement for Your French Bulldog with Multiple Active Ingredients, especially if the supplement is designed to target more than one health concern. A multivitamin is not a supplement or a substitution for a supplement.
  • 2: Always Check The number and amount of Active Ingredients. Companies trying to save a buck will often skimp on the milligrams of active ingredients in their products.
  • 3: Always Buy Made In USA. We are the only country that regulates ingestible animal ingestible more rigorously than human products. You can find it on the label. Companies like Amazon also make this information easy to find.
  • 4: If Your French Bulldog Has Allergies or Food Sensitivities, Choose a dog supplement with anti-inflammatory properties.
  • 5: Results Will Vary Based on Your French Bulldog's Age and Condition, as well as your Dog's diet. Be very skeptical of any health supplement that claims it can "treat, prevent or cure" any disease.
  • 6: Checkout the package and look for the NASC seal, which should be on any dog supplement product package. The National Animal Supplement Council rigorously audits each product to bear its seal, ensuring it was tested for quality and met all Good Manufacturing Practices per FDA policies. Amazon usually makes the certification easy to spot.
  • 7: Taste and Format Matters- Save yourself time and headache; choose a supplement your dog likes. Go for a chewable if your Dog dislikes powdered supplements that require mixing.

Answer: The active ingredients in supplements have been tested through many years of research for their various animal benefits, from allergy mitigation to osteoarthritic support. These ingredients are not found in pet food due to their potency and must come with dosage instructions. Senior dogs will have a much better quality of life if their owners' have incorporated healthy habits, like exercise, into their Frenchies' routines over a long period of time.

Answer: WoofWell® Breed-Specific Health Support Supplements are designed to give once every day. For most French Bulldogs, Once Chew per day is sufficient. A French Bulldog Puppy will only need one-half per day. Make sure to check the label's feeding instructions to match your Dog's weight to the number of recommended chews. Be sure to feed at steady intervals. For Example: if the recommended serving is two chews per day, give one chew every 12 hours instead of 2 chews every 24 hours.

Answer: Always check the cautions and warnings on the label. By law, all known medication interactions should be listed on the package in the cautions or warnings. And if in doubt, contact your Veterinarian, especially if the medication is new.

Answer: If your pet is allergic to ingredients listed on the label, do not use the product. If your pet is allergic to certain ingredients not listed on the label, it does not necessarily mean the product is not safe to use, but it is always wise to ask. We are available to answer your questions about ingredients found in our products. Still, We will always encourage you to call your vet if your pet is prone to severe allergic reactions before starting any new supplement. Frenchie owners will tell you, French Bulldogs are not among the healthy breeds and rely on the Veterinarian more than most dog parents.

Answer: Nope. WoofWell® Breed-Specific Health Support Supplements only come in delicious bacon-flavored soft-chews.
