What are the nutrition requirements of a Rottweiler?
Just like you, dogs need a balanced diet which contains the right amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates and many different vitamins and minerals to ensure that they stay in peak condition. Our research indicated that most home-made diets/baby food fed to dogs in our country are inadequate and do not meet recommended nutritional requirements. There are many commercial pet food for puppy as well as specifically for large breed puppy available from the reputed manufacturers. Large breeds have longer growth period than small breeds and therefore continue feeding puppy food until 18-24 months of age. Most of the reputed puppy food contains nutrients required for fur health that includes high quality proteins, Omega fatty acids, zinc as well as vitamins. You may have to contact your vet for preparing the balanced home-made food considering his size and activity.
