The Rottweiler breed can be prone to cardiac problems. This breed has a high incidence of heart murmur, caused by subaortic stenosis. Even though breeders try their best to breed this out, there are always risks for a puppy to develop this condition. Keeping a healthy heart in this breed is therefore important. Look for dog foods containing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Taurine is also an amino acid supplement that is beneficial for the heart.

Best Dog Food For Rottweiler: Top 3 Recommended Brands in 2017


My vet advised me not to feed my new puppy, puppy food as it will make her grow quicker and cause problems with her bones as she get's a little older.

I feed my dog's all natural brand dry dog food and was talking with a man who has a rescue about my vet telling me not to feed my rottweiler puppy food where he disagreed and said a large breed puppy food should be used up to 2 years of age to develop strong bones.

So, now I am unsure as to what is best for my girl, a good all natural puppy food or adult food and pet-form vitamin-mineral supplement, cosequin- DS, and Ester -C immune support tabs.

When I changed her to the puppy food, I stopped the supplement's as I don't want to give her to much of something and cause her damage in the future.




Hi Connie
This is a subject where there are often conflicting opinions - with each side being passionate about their viewpoint!

Personally I agree with your second recommendation - that is to feed a puppy food until the pup is mature. The key here is to feed only a premium food that has been specifically formulated for large breed puppies.

That way you can be sure that the optimum ratio of protein:fats:calcium etc. is adhered to and that your puppy doesn't get too much of anything. Your vet is correct in that some puppy foods are too high in protein for a large breed puppy and can lead to bone/joint issues, but a premium 'large breed puppy food' won't have that problem.

I'd recommend that you visit my page as it has all the information you need on how to choose the correct food, and what dietary needs your pup has. My page has more info. plus a selection of some of the best choices on the market.

Hope this helps. Best of luck with your pup.

We have found several places that recommend Crude Protein for AT LEAST 30% and everyone of these write ups recommended dry kibble food of 33% to 38%. We also noticed that the Crude fat did not really change too much 16% – 18%, which is pretty standard for all quality dry food. Now the final factor that came into play, how much to feed?
