20 Best Foods for a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Puppy
Diamond Naturals has been my go to food for many years and many dogs. They also make 4Health for TSC and Costco Kirkland and Natures Domain. Diamond does not spend a lot on advertising which is one reason you get so much bang for your buck. Dog food advisor is a great resource for comparing brands-some will surprise you how good or bad they fare. (I steer away from anything with corn soy wheat and by products). Missing Link Hip and Joint supplement is another one I’ve stuck with-people constantly compliment my furkids past and present on their silky shiny coats (Aussies and BC’s).

I had a staffy cross with dire digestive problems when I got him, it took a year to sort him put. He had boiled brown rice, raw mince mainly chicken or lamb certainly not beef nor tripe. With a sprinkling of dried food (to make sure it was balanced) for sensitive tummies. He was a picture of health and no digestive problems.

For most of mines life I’ve fed him James Well beloved grain free food as the vet recommended it for his sensitive stomach. They also told me to stay away from Bakers as it’s full of E-numbers. I think staffys are prone to having a sensitive tummy especially as they get older. If that’s any help at all

Had staffys for years you want a balanced meal. Try taste of the wild dry complete food it’s well balanced and training couldn’t be easier if your using food to do it as they all seemed to love this.

All pups are different I really wouldn’t worth too much about it, choose a good quality food and give it at least 6 weeks to see what they think of it. Changing foods too often will cause tummy issues. My staffy is 6 years old and has always enjoyed James well beloved lamb and rice.

Depends on the dog and your budget, we have to use royal canin hypoallergenic due to my dogs allergies, wainwrights isn’t a bad average food, avoid bakers, pedigree chum etc, most of the ones in the supermarkets lol look for meat content in ingredients and no additives, hypoallergenic is best if your not going for a raw diet.
