Many people want to share human food with their pooch, but it’s important to know that Bull Terriers have different metabolic systems than ours. That means what’s safe for us may not be safe for our Bull Terrier.
So here are the most common 37 fruits, vegetables & other snacks Bull Terriers can (and can’t) eat:
List of fruits Bull Terriers can or can’t eat
Wondering which fruits your Bull Terrier can eat or not? Here is a list of some common fruits your Bull Terrier can or can’t eat:
The short answer is yes, Bull Terriers can eat apples.
Apples are a great source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your Bull Terrier. They’re low in protein and fat, making them the perfect snack for senior Bull Terriers.
But before you rush out to buy some apples for your Bull Terrier, there are a few things you should know.
First off, remove the seeds and core first—they contain cyanide. It’s best to avoid processed apples like applesauce or apple pie filling since they have added sugar.
Avocado is not safe for your Bull Terrier. Just in case you’ve ever wondered about this issue, here are some reasons you should never feed avocado to your Bull Terrier:
Avocado contains persin, a toxic chemical that can cause vomiting and diarrhea in Bull Terriers. The chemical is found in the leaves, stems, bark and fruits of the plant. It’s also found in the leaves of other plants, including pistachio trees and citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons.
Besides causing gastrointestinal upset, avocados can cause inflammation of the stomach lining and intestinal tissue. This can lead to more serious problems, like bleeding or perforation of the intestines, if left untreated.
Some Bull Terriers may be allergic to avocados because they contain persin, which is similar in structure to latex proteins found in many common household items such as latex paint or rubber gloves used by veterinarians during surgical procedures on Bull Terriers or cats.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat bananas.
Bananas are a low-calorie snack that can be given to Bull Terriers in moderation. They’re high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber and copper—all great things for your pup!
The downside is that bananas have a high sugar content. This means we should give them as an occasional treat only. It’s also important to remove the peel before giving it to your Bull Terrier; the peel is hard for them to digest.
Processed varieties of bananas like banana chips or puddings may contain added toxic ingredients, so only give your Bull Terrier raw bananas or ones that you’ve peeled yourself.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat blackberries.
Blackberries are low in calories and sugar, but they’re high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Your Bull Terrier will benefit from that.
They can eat frozen or fresh blackberries, but avoid processed blackberries like blackberry jam, jelly, blackberry-flavored ice cream, as they may contain harmful additives.
Two to three blackberries per 10 pounds of body weight a day should be fine for your Bull Terrier’s diet.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat blueberries.
Blueberries are rich in vitamins and minerals, which is good news for your Bull Terrier. They’re also high in antioxidants and sugar, so feed them in moderation (4-5 blueberries per 10 pounds of body weight). Whether your Bull Terrier prefers frozen, fresh or dried berries, it’s all good! However, avoid processed blueberries like blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberry pie, or any other treats that may contain harmful preservatives or additives.
Can Bull Terriers eat cantaloupe? Sure, but with a few caveats.
Cantaloupe is low in calories but high in other nutrients, including fiber and moisture. However, it’s also high in sugar, so give your Bull Terrier this fruit in moderation.
Remove the rind and seeds before feeding your Bull Terrier cantaloupe—they can be choking hazards for your pup.
No, Bull Terriers can’t eat cherries. Although the fleshy part around the seed is safe, it’s been discovered that the plant contains cyanide. Cyanide destroys cellular oxygen transport in your Bull Terrier, and symptoms of cyanide toxicity include dilated pupils. If you’re concerned that your Bull Terrier has eaten cherries, contact your vet as soon as possible.
Can Bull Terriers eat grapes?
The answer is a resounding “no.” Grapes are very toxic to Bull Terriers. Even a small amount can cause sudden kidney failure in your Bull Terrier. Symptoms of grape poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. If you suspect your Bull Terrier has eaten grapes, seek veterinary help immediately.
Mango is a delicious fruit that is safe for Bull Terriers to eat. It contains four different vitamins: A, B6, C, and E that are essential for your Bull Terrier’s health. Mangoes also have potassium, fiber and antioxidants which can help keep your Bull Terrier healthy and happy. Additionally, mangos have high water content, which helps keep their body hydrated.
Mangoes are delicious, and Bull Terriers love them! However, remove the skin before feeding it to your Bull Terrier. You should also remove the pit from inside of mangoes since it could be dangerous if swallowed by your Bull Terrier.
We recommend giving your Bull Terrier one-quarter cup of fresh mango once a week to make sure they get enough nutrients from this fruit without overloading on sugar.
Can a Bull Terrier eat oranges? It’s a question we’ve all been asking ourselves at some point, and the answer is yes! But with a few important caveats.
Oranges provide Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and moisture. The fleshy part of an orange is safe for Bull Terriers to eat in moderation. You can give them one or two sections as an occasional treat, but make sure you remove all traces of peel, skin, pith and seeds. Not only are these parts toxic for Bull Terriers to consume, but they could also cause an intestinal blockage if your pup eats too much at once.
You should also avoid giving your Bull Terrier any citrus fruits other than oranges—including grapefruit and lemons—because they contain different levels of citric acid which may be harmful to your pet’s digestive system.
Yes, you can feed your Bull Terrier peaches.
Peaches are high in fiber and vitamin A, which makes them healthy for your Bull Terrier to eat. They are also safe for Bull Terriers to eat in small amounts—cut-up fresh or frozen peaches are fine for your pup!
However, avoid feeding them the pit, as it may contain cyanide. Also, avoid processed peaches like peach cobbler or peach pie, as they may contain harmful additives like xylitol, nitrite and sugar.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat pears.
Pears are a great snack because they’re high in copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber.
Eating the fruit can reduce the risk of having a stroke significantly. Just be sure to cut pears into bite-size chunks and remove the pit and seeds first, as the seeds contain traces of cyanide. Skip processed pears like canned pears as it may contain sugar syrups and other additives that aren’t good for your Bull Terrier’s digestive health. One small slice is ok for most Bull Terriers as pears contain sugar—just make sure your Bull Terrier doesn’t go overboard with the treats.
You might wonder if your Bull Terrier can eat pineapple. The answer is yes! Pineapple contains vitamins and minerals, as well as the enzyme bromelain—which helps break down proteins in your Bull Terrier’s body. So it’s a tasty, nutritious snack for Bull Terriers.
But there are some things you need to know before feeding your Bull Terrier pineapple:
First, make sure your Bull Terrier has never had an allergic reaction to pineapples before. If so, avoid feeding them to your Bull Terrier.
Second, only feed your Bull Terrier the soft inner portion of the fruit—not the spiky skin or hard core. If your Bull Terrier eats these parts, they may become sick or injured.
Third, don’t feed processed pineapple like canned pineapple or pineapple cake because they contain harmful chemicals and additives that are bad for Bull Terriers. The best thing is to just give them raw organic pineapple that you’ve cut up into small pieces (2/3 small bites should be enough).
Pumpkin is a great choice for your Bull Terrier’s snack. It can help with your Bull Terrier’s skin and coat, and it’s also great for digestion. Pumpkin can help remedy both diarrhea and constipation in your Bull Terrier, so it’s a good choice when you’re trying to manage these issues.
Never feed your Bull Terrier pumpkin pie mix—this isn’t good for them! Canned pumpkin is okay for your Bull Terrier, but make sure it’s 100% pumpkin. Many pumpkin supplements and pumpkin-flavored pup treats are available on the market today as well.
The amount of pumpkin you give depends on your Bull Terrier’s size and activity level—start with a teaspoon per day.
Yes, your Bull Terrier can eat strawberries.
Fresh and frozen strawberries have the same nutritional benefits, as long as you cut them into small pieces before serving. Remove the stem, and avoid processed strawberries.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat watermelon.
Watermelon is a low-calorie treat that provides vitamins, minerals, lycopene and moisture to your Bull Terrier’s diet. However, only the flesh of the watermelon is safe and nutritious. Bull Terriers should not consume it in large quantities.
Before feeding your Bull Terrier any new food item, it’s best to consult your veterinarian. Your vet can make sure that your Bull Terrier’s cancer risk isn’t increased by eating watermelon and can also recommend serving sizes for your pet’s weight.
Cut the watermelon into small chunks before feeding it to your Bull Terrier. Remove seeds, rinds and skin from each chunk before feeding it to him or her. Half a cup of diced seedless and rind-free watermelon is enough per 10 pounds of body weight every day.
List of vegetable Bull Terriers can or can’t eat
Wondering which vegetables your Bull Terrier can eat or not? Here is a list of some vegetables your Bull Terrier can or can’t eat:
Can Bull Terriers eat broccoli? The answer is yes!
Broccoli contains Vitamin K, Vitamin C and minerals. It also contains fiber. Broccoli stems and florets are both safe to eat, either cooked or raw. However, always cut them into small pieces to avoid choking hazards. Offering 1/4 (0.25) cup broccoli per 10 pounds of body weight of a pup is an ideal serving size for most Bull Terriers.
Cabbage is a healthy, nutritious food for Bull Terriers. It contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are good for your Bull Terrier’s health. It is also rich in fiber and moisture, which your pup needs to stay hydrated and full of energy.
Cabbage comes in different colors like red, green, purple and white. All these colors are safe and healthy for Bull Terriers with no side effects. The only difference is that red cabbage has more nutrients than green cabbage.
The best way to feed your Bull Terrier with cabbage is lightly cooked or roasted by adding no oil or salt. You can offer 1 bite of roasted cabbage per 10 pounds of body weight of a pup.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat carrots! In fact, we think carrots are an excellent low calorie treat for your pup.
Carrots contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber, making them a healthy snack for your Bull Terrier. They’re also great for your Bull Terrier’s teeth because they crunch on them. You can serve raw or cooked carrots—either way is fine. Cooked carrots are better since they’re easier to digest, but raw or frozen carrots have their own benefits: they help keep your Bull Terrier’s teeth clean by keeping them chewed on!
One or two baby carrots should be enough to satisfy the appetite of an average sized pup. If you want to make a carrot cake for your pooch, be sure that you don’t add any harmful additives.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat celery! It’s a great low-calorie treat, and it has vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and is high in moisture and fiber.
Celery sticks are fine for most Bull Terriers, especially for larger pups. Celery leaves are safe for Bull Terriers as long as they’re organic and washed thoroughly. However, always cut the celery into bite-sized pieces before giving it to them.
You can serve celery in various ways, such as topping with small peanut butter or mixing into their regular food. You can also pair it up with other treats, like carrots or broccoli.
Cucumbers are a great snack for Bull Terriers. They contain vitamins, minerals, moisture and fiber that can help your Bull Terrier stay healthy by promoting digestive health. They also provide phytochemicals that help freshen your Bull Terrier’s breath.
Cucumber seed and peels or skin are safe as long as they are organic, but avoid processed cucumbers like cucumber pickles, as they may contain harmful additives like onions, garlic, salt and sugar.
Amount depends on the size of your Bull Terrier but only one or two pieces of cucumber are enough for most pups.
Can Bull Terriers eat garlic?
No, Bull Terriers can’t eat garlic. Garlic is toxic to Bull Terriers. The active ingredients in garlic are a sulfur compound called N-propyl disulfide and allicin, which is created when your Bull Terrier chews it. These compounds cause hemolysis leading to anemia. Other symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression and death. Raw and cooked cloves and bulbs of garlic are toxic to your Bull Terrier.
If your Bull Terrier eats garlic, contact the vet immediately as treatment may involve inducing vomiting or administering activated charcoal to absorb the toxin from the stomach.
Onion consumption is dangerous to your Bull Terrier’s health.
In fact, onions are toxic to Bull Terriers and can cause hemolysis, which leads to anemia. Hemolysis is when red blood cells rupture and release their contents into the bloodstream. This causes the blood to become thicker, which makes it harder for your Bull Terrier’s body to get oxygen where it needs to go.
A toxic dose of onions for Bull Terriers is 15 gm/kg of body weight. So even if you only give him a tiny bite of onion, it could still poison him.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat zucchini.
Zucchini is a low-calorie treat and full of vitamins and antioxidants. It’s also high in fiber and moisture that will help keep your pup hydrated. Plain raw, steamed, or cooked zucchini is safe for Bull Terriers to eat; however, raw zucchini provides more Vitamin A than cooked ones. The amount depends on the size of your Bull Terrier, but start with just one or two small bites until you know how it will affect them.
List of some other snacks Bull Terriers can or can’t eat
Wondering which snacks your Bull Terrier can eat or not? Here is a list of some snacks your Bull Terrier can or can’t eat:
Bacon is a very rich and fatty food, which makes it a great addition to any meal. However, for Bull Terriers, bacon can be too much for their stomachs to handle.
The high salt content of bacon can lead to dehydration in large amounts. The fat content in bacon can cause obesity in Bull Terriers and pancreatitis if given in large doses.
While not all Bull Terriers have allergies to pork, some do develop an allergy after eating large amounts of pork products. If your Bull Terrier has had no problems eating other types of meat before eating pork, then it may be an allergy rather than digestion issues he is experiencing from eating pork products like bacon or ham.
If you decide to give your Bull Terrier bacon, make sure that you only feed him small amounts of cooked bacon infrequently. Too much of this food can cause pancreatitis in Bull Terriers.
Beef is a great source of protein and many important vitamins and minerals. However, raw beef should be avoided, as it contains many harmful bacteria.
Cooked, unseasoned lean beef is safe for Bull Terriers in small amounts unless your Bull Terrier is allergic to beef.
Beef broth, beef stew, and specialized Bull Terrier beef jerky without an excess amount of salt are also safe for your Bull Terrier. Never feed cooked bone to your Bull Terrier, but larger raw beef bones can be a chew toy. For a 20 pounds pooch, one cup of kibble or 0.3 pound of ground beef is fine if you go for a raw diet.
Can Bull Terriers eat bread?
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat bread provided your Bull Terrier is not allergic to it. However, only plain white and wheat bread is safe for Bull Terriers to eat. Avoid processed bread like bread with yeast. Bread doesn’t provide that much nutrients in your Bull Terrier, so offer them in moderation. A crust is fine, but a whole slice is too much for your Bull Terrier. Too much bread can cause digestive issues for your Bull Terrier and may lead to obesity if you give it regularly.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat cheese. However, it’s important to know what types of cheese are safe and which ones are not. Mozzarella, cottage, swiss and cheddar cheeses are the safer options because they contain vitamins, fatty acids and proteins that are beneficial to your Bull Terrier’s health.
Stay away from blue cheese, goat cheese, parmesan cheese and cream cheese because they may cause diarrhea or vomiting in Bull Terriers because of their high fat and sodium content. The amount of cheese that you feed your Bull Terrier will depend on the size of your pet; however, a few small bites are fine.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat chicken. Chicken is a good source of protein and contains omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
Boneless cooked breast meat is the best option, as it has less fat than other parts of the chicken and is easily digestible by your Bull Terrier.
Don’t feed your Bull Terrier chicken skin as it contains a high amount of fat that can cause pancreatitis and other health problems in Bull Terriers.
Amount depends on the size of the Bull Terrier, but give 1/8 to 1/6 cup of meat protein per 10 pounds of body weight per day if your Bull Terrier is on a raw meat diet.
Can Bull Terriers eat chocolate?
The short answer is no. Chocolate is toxic to Bull Terriers, and it’s important to be aware of the signs of chocolate toxicity in your pup.
Chocolate contains both theobromine and caffeine that are toxic to pups. Cocoa powder (most toxic), Unsweetened baker’s chocolate, Semisweet chocolate, Dark chocolate, Milk chocolate- all are toxic.
If your Bull Terrier ate chocolate, contact your vet immediately. The vet will perform tests to determine how much poison was consumed and what type of treatment is needed.
Educate your family about the danger of chocolate in Bull Terriers to prevent accidental ingestion.
Yes, your Bull Terrier can eat eggs.
Eggs are a great source of protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. They’re also easy to cook and have little in the way of harmful ingredients—as long as you cook them well and avoid raw eggs.
Raw eggs can contain salmonella and other harmful bacteria, so it’s best to avoid feeding them to your Bull Terrier. Also, avidin in the egg white prevents absorption of biotin from other foods in your Bull Terrier’s diet.
Egg shells are fine as long as you grind them up first. Sharp edges can be dangerous for Bull Terriers (and people!).
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat fish.
Fish are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vitamins and minerals. However, not all fish are safe for your Bull Terrier to eat. Smaller, younger, wild-caught, shorter-lived species like salmon, shrimp, tilapia are generally safe for your Bull Terrier. Avoid longer-lived fish species like tuna, shark, swordfish as they can contain heavy metals like mercury.
Always clean them properly before feeding them to your Bull Terrier—debone them and remove all bones from their flesh before cooking them. Also avoid adding any harmful additives to the food you feed your Bull Terrier! Feeding your Bull Terrier one or two times per week in small controlled amounts is fine for most Bull Terriers.
Ice cream can be a delicious treat for humans, but it’s not good for Bull Terriers.
Bull Terriers can’t digest dairy products and sugar, which are the main ingredients in ice cream.
When they digest these things, they become toxic to the Bull Terrier’s body. If your Bull Terrier accidentally eats ice cream, seek veterinary help immediately.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat peanut butter in moderation.
Peanut butter provides protein, vitamins and healthy fats—all of which your Bull Terrier needs to live a long and happy life. But it’s important to make sure that the peanut butter you feed your Bull Terrier is pup-safe, without xylitol or chocolate. And while peanut butter pretzels may be delicious to humans, they’re not so great for Bull Terriers because they contain three times more sodium than other types of peanut butter.
Start by giving your pup a half teaspoon of peanut butter per day; if he or she seems to enjoy it, you can then increase the amount. If you notice any negative side effects like diarrhea or vomiting, stop feeding your Bull Terrier peanut butter immediately and consult your vet for advice on what else you should feed him or her instead!
If your Bull Terrier has been begging for a taste of your popcorn, you may wonder if it’s safe for them to eat. The good news is that plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for Bull Terriers to eat in small quantities as an occasional treat. The bad news is that for processed popcorn, stay away from it and stick with the plain stuff.
Popped corn kernels actually contain several minerals important to Bull Terriers: magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc—along with fiber and trace amounts of vitamins. So what’s the catch? The problem is not in the kernel itself but in what we do with it! Avoid un-popped or partially popped kernels because they could be a choking hazard and may even cause damage to your Bull Terrier’s teeth.
Also, avoid processed popcorn like buttered popcorn or popcorn with other toppings (like cheese) because they can be harmful and even dangerous for your pup.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat turkey, and it’s a great option for most Bull Terriers. It’s safe as long as you provide cooked lean, white, unseasoned and boneless turkey meat to your Bull Terrier. Turkey breast meat is the best option, and provides protein, fatty acids and minerals.
Turkey skin can cause GI upset and pancreatitis in Bull Terriers, so avoid it at all costs. Also avoid processed turkey—it may contain harmful ingredients like sodium nitrite.
For every 12 pounds of body weight, feed your pup 20 grams of white meat turkey or 15 grams of dark meat turkey.
Yes, Bull Terriers can eat yogurt. Plain yogurt is a perfectly acceptable snack for Bull Terriers. However, some Bull Terriers may have trouble digesting dairy products. If your Bull Terrier can digest it, the active bacteria in yogurt can help strengthen the digestive system. Plain yogurt is the best choice for your Bull Terrier. Avoid any yogurts with added sugar or artificial sweeteners, as these can upset your Bull Terrier’s stomach and make them sick.
One teaspoon of yogurt a day is fine for most Bull Terriers; however, if you notice that your Bull Terrier has diarrhea after eating it, discontinue consumption until the problem clears up.
