You should always consult a Licensed Veterinarian and/or Canine Nutritionist first for nutrition and weight issues. Only a Licensed Veterinarian and/or Canine Nutritionist will be able to properly diagnose and treat your Bullmastiff.
Now that you own a Bullmastiff, the responsibility becomes a partnership between you and the Bullmastiff Breeder (hopefully). The Bullmastiff Breeder, presumably, tried to create a fine specimen of the Bullmastiff Breed. Now you need to figure out how to keep him or her that way and your first step should be - Nutrition.
Just because a bag or can is labeled "dog food" or "doggy treat", it doesn't mean that you should necessarily be feeding your Bullmastiff that particular item. The following holds true:
Feed your Bullmastiff a low quality diet in improper amounts - you "might" save money in dog food and treats, but you will more than triple your cost in future veterinarian bills.
The Bullmastiff is extremely sensitive to diet assignments. Feed them too much to fast, you risk skeletal problems and bloat. Give them too little or too much supplementation, you risk skeletal and musculature problems and more. Feed them toxically preserved foods, you increase their chances of autoimmune diseases and cancer.
