Editor's Notes

December 19, 2018:

It's important to keep in mind that, while pitbulls have certain characteristics that make them unique, they still largely have the same nutritional requirements as other breeds. However, as this is a muscular breed, you should focus on options that have at least a 30% protein content. Also, the best food will vary from pet to pet, and depends on the dog's weight, activity level, health history, and temperament, so take all of those factors into consideration before making your purchase. Keep in mind too that oftentimes the best food for your animals is whichever one they'll actually eat.
