What Is The Ideal French Bulldog Weight?

    My French Bulldog, Wilbur, is 2.5” taller than standard. He’s just turned 9. He currently weighs 34 lbs, is very energetic, healthy, but does seem to me to have gained at least 2 pounds since going on royal canin hydrolized protein (regular, not Frenchie or low cal). I feed him about a cup+ per day, I walk him for two 40 min walks per day, plus other short walks. When I can I take him to a place where he can run. Dog parks make him very anxious, so I don’t do that. I don’t give him extra treats. I think it’s the food that’s caused the weight gain. He went on the hydrolized protein at vet recommendation ‘cause he was having anal gland problems. Worked for a year, not working any more. What do you recommend?

      Hi Judy, it sounds like you are doing everything possible from an exercise perspective, so by process of elimination, it may be the food.

      You could consider a homemade diet of lean meat, vegetables, and some rice. This is a lean diet that also helps with allergies. You could also consider trialing Wilbur on a smaller portion size to see how he goes. Just like with humans, weight loss/gain is largely hereditary, so it really comes down to discipline and trial and error to find the best approach.

      Hey Rachael,

      Every Frenchie will be slightly different with their weight, so don’t panic. If you are concerned it is always best to see a vet.

      Hi Jade,

      It’s still best to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime with your pup, but if she is still losing weight or appears to be underweight, you should see a vet to get an expert opinion.

    My Frenchie is a year old and almost 50 lbs. He isn’t overweight though, he is healthy and very active, just long and super filled out. He is the biggest Frenchie I’ve ever seen. Is it normal for him to be double the size of the standard for this breed?

      Hey Kara,

      It’s definitely not normal, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is a concern! See your vet and get an expert opinion to be safe. Alternatively, you can chat with a vet online here: https://trk.justanswer.com/SHHq

      Hey Tony,

      We recommend chatting to your vet about this or using the suggested times on your food of choice. Dogs are usually considered puppies up until 12 months old, but every food is slightly different.

    Hi my Frenchie is 4 months old. I’m wondering if he’s putting on weight too quickly, he has about 280g canin puppy food over 3 meals a day. Weighed him today and he’s 8kg. Should this be a concern?

      Hey Shawn,

      It’s probably best to chat with your vet about this. Every Frenchie is different in their stature and ideal weight, so it’s hard to give you a black and white answer.
