It is straightforward and easy to go to the store and buy a bag of regular grain-based dog food. However, you could be feeding your Staffordshire Bull Terrier something a lot more nutritious and beneficial. According to Dr. Billinghurst's Biologically Appropriate Raw Food diet, a diet rich in appropriate raw foods provides more protein, vitamins and minerals than does the regular dog diet. By feeding your terrier this nutrient-rich diet, you are ensuring he will remain in good health for a long time.
Feed your dog a diet of 60 per cent raw meaty bones, 25 per cent ground meat and offal, and 15 per cent ground vegetables and fruit. Raw meaty bones include chicken necks and wings, whole chicken carcases, turkey wings and necks, beef neck, pork feet, as well as duck, rabbit and quail.
Feed your dog by chopping the meat and serving it to him in a dish. Don't forget to give him plenty of water as well.
Feed the dog fruits and vegetables. If your dog has never eaten fruits or vegetables before, it is important to start slowly. Add small amounts to your dog's food every day, until he is eating the proper amount for his weight.
Mix the fruits and vegetables in a blender, with some natural yoghurt if your dog needs help digesting, and a few eggs. You can use romaine, small amounts of parsley, carrots, pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes and broccoli. Include oranges, apples, mangoes, kiwi and cantaloupe. Serve in a bowl to your dog.
Feed your dog ground meat. This includes beef, chicken, turkey and fresh fish, as well as beef heart, kidney, liver and brains. Mix the meats together in a blender, but don't grind too finely. Serve in a dish.
The dog should eat leafy green vegetables.
Don't feed the dog tomato leaves.
