One great way to feed celery to your American Bullies is to top it with small peanut butter or mix it with their regular food. You can also pair up celery with other treats (like carrots) so they don’t get bored with eating the same thing all the time.
Celery sticks are generally ok for big pups because they’re easier for them to chew than leaves. However, always cut the celery into bite-sized pieces before giving it to your American Bullies so he or she doesn’t choke on any large pieces that could get stuck in their throat or windpipe.

List of some other snacks American Bullies can or can’t eat
Wondering which snacks your American Bullies can eat or not? Here is a list of some snacks your American Bullies can or can’t eat:
No, your American Bullies should not eat bacon.
Bacon is an incredibly rich and fatty food with a high salt content. This combination of fats and salt can prove to be too much for a American Bullies’s stomach to handle. It may cause pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas.
Eating a large amount can also cause diarrhea, vomiting or even weight loss in American Bullies. However, giving your American Bullies small amounts of cooked bacon infrequently should not cause harm. Cooked bacon should be served warm rather than hot so that it doesn’t burn your American Bullies’s mouth or throat if he eats it quickly.
Yes! Cooked, unseasoned lean beef is safe for American Bullies in small amounts unless your American Bullies is allergic to beef. This is because while beef contains many essential vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc and B vitamins (which American Bullies need), it also contains a lot of fat which is not good for your American Bullies’s health.
Beef broth, beef stew, and specialized American Bullies beef jerky without an excess amount of salt are also safe for your American Bullies. The best part about this is that you can make it at home! Just boil some meaty bones until the broth turns into a gelatinous substance—this is called bone broth—and then use it as an ingredient in any dish you make for yourself or your American Bullies!
Stay away from raw beef because they may contain harmful parasites. Never feed cooked bone to your American Bullies, but larger raw beef bones can be a great chew toy.
Yes, American Bullies can eat bread provided they aren’t allergic to it.
However, only plain white and wheat bread is safe for American Bullies to eat. Bread doesn’t provide that much nutrients in your American Bullies, so offer them in moderation. A crust is fine, but a whole slice is too much for your American Bullies.
Too much bread can cause diarrhea or constipation, which could lead to other health issues if not treated properly.
Yes, a small amount of cheese is ok for American Bullies. Cheese contains vitamins and proteins that are essential for your American Bullies’s diet. However, avoid feeding your American Bullies too much cheese. Too much cheese can cause health problems such as diarrhea and gas.
There are some types of cheese that are safe for American Bullies to eat: mozzarella, cottage, swiss and cheddar cheese. You should stay away from spicy cheeses like cheesecake, blue cheese, goat cheese and parmesan because they can cause stomach upset and kidney problems in American Bullies. Also avoid cream cheese as it may cause digestive problems in American Bullies.
The amount of cheese that you feed your American Bullies depends on the size of your American Bullies; however, a few small bites should be fine for most American Bullies.
Can American Bullies eat chicken?
Yes, and they absolutely should. Chicken contains protein, omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for American Bullies.
Boneless cooked breast meat is the best option for your American Bullies. Avoid chicken skin as it contains a high amount of fat that can cause pancreatitis in American Bullies.
The amount depends on the size of your American Bullies, but give 1/8 to 1/6 cup of meat protein per 10 pounds of body weight per day if your American Bullies is on a raw meat diet.
Can American Bullies eat chocolate? The short answer is no. Chocolate isn’t good for your pup at all.
Theobromine and caffeine are two substances found in chocolate that can be toxic to American Bullies. Theobromine is a bitter alkaloid that affects American Bullies’ central nervous system, causing muscle tremors, abnormal heart rhythms, and seizures. Caffeine causes similar symptoms in American Bullies as it does humans—increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and tremors.
Chocolate contains both toxins, so even small amounts can be deadly to your pup depending on his size or weight.
The type of chocolate your American Bullies eats will determine how much of a risk he faces. No matter what type of chocolate your pup ate, contact the vet immediately.
Yes, your American Bullies can eat eggs—as long as they’re cooked.
Eggs are high in protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.
But there’s a catch: Raw eggs have avidin in them that prevents your American Bullies from absorbing biotin. Also, raw eggs may contain bacteria and egg shells can be dangerous if not ground up or if they have sharp edges.
Yes, American Bullies can eat fish. Although American Bullies are carnivores, they don’t need meat to survive—they just need protein and energy. Fish is a great source of both, and vitamins and minerals. However, not all fish are safe for your American Bullies to consume.
Smaller, younger, wild-caught, shorter-lived species like salmon, shrimp and tilapia are generally safe for your American Bullies if you feed them properly. Avoid longer-lived fish species like tuna, shark and swordfish because they can contain heavy metals like mercury, which can be harmful to your American Bullies’s health.
Always clean them properly before feeding them to your American Bullies; debone them then cook them in a way that doesn’t add harmful additives. We recommend feeding your American Bullies one or two times per week in small controlled amounts for optimal nutrition and health benefits for your pet.
Can American Bullies eat ice cream?
No, the American Bullies shouldn’t eat ice cream. Ice cream is a high-calorie, high-fat food that contains dairy products and sugar.

Ice cream toxicity symptoms include excessive thirst, excessive urination, lethargy, diarrhea or vomiting. If you suspect your American Bullies ate ice cream, seek veterinary help immediately.
Yes, American Bullies can eat peanut butter.
Peanut butter provides protein, vitamins and healthy fats. However, it is important to ensure that the peanut butter contains no xylitol or chocolate, as these can be lethal to American Bullies. Also, avoid peanut butter pretzels, as they contain three times more sodium than regular pretzels.
American Bullies should not eat more than a quarter teaspoon of peanut butter per 4 pounds of body weight per day. For example, a 16-pound American Bullies would get 1 teaspoons of peanut butter per day.

You bet they can! Plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for American Bullies to eat in small quantities as an occasional treat.
Popped corn kernels actually contain several minerals important to American Bullies, like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc, along with fiber and trace amounts of vitamins. It’s also low in fat and calories—not that you need to worry about your pup packing on the pounds!
Buttered popcorn or popcorn with other toppings like cheese are not safe for your American Bullies because they could cause digestive upset. Also, un-popped or partially popped kernels can be a choking hazard and may even cause damage to your American Bullies’s teeth.
Can American Bullies eat turkey?
Yes, as long as you provide cooked lean, white, unseasoned and boneless turkey meat to your American Bullies. Turkey breast meat is the best option, because it contains the most protein, fatty acids and minerals. Avoid turkey skin because it can cause GI upset and pancreatitis. Also avoid processed turkey because it may contain harmful substances.
20 grams of white meat turkey or 15 grams of dark meat turkey per 12 pounds body weight for your pooch.
Yes, American Bullies can eat yogurt.
Plain yogurt is a perfectly acceptable snack for American Bullies, but it’s important to know that some American Bullies may have trouble digesting dairy products. If your American Bullies can digest it, the good bacteria in yogurt can help strengthen the digestive system. Plain yogurt is the best choice for your American Bullies.
Avoid any yogurts with added sugar or artificial sweeteners as these can cause diarrhea in American Bullies.
One teaspoon of yogurt a day is fine for most American Bullies, but if you want to give them more than that, you should consult your vet first to make sure it’s safe.
