Puppy diet plan

My 14 week old rotti went for his second jab today and weighs 12.5kg he is eating purina beta turkey and rice dry food only.

The vet suggested to start feeding him raw mince meat with better quality dry food.

I was wondering what the best way to feed my pup up.


Hi Steph,
Rottweiler puppies grow at an incredible rate and they have very specific nutritional needs.

What they eat can have a long-term impact on their overall health and it's important that they have a premium food with the right balance of nutrients.

You can find all the info. you need on feeding Rottie pups properly here.... Feeding Puppies and Best Large Breed Puppy Food.

Whether or not you want to add raw meat to your pup's diet is up to you. He will certainly enjoy it, but he needs a lot more than just the protein for meat.

Adding something as tasty as raw beef to his bowl can make a puppy a bit 'picky' when it comes to food because he'll obviously prefer the meat over the dry food. As long as he continues to eat a HIGH QUALITY large breed puppy food (and I'm afraid Purina food doesn't fit that bill) the meat will be just the icing on the cake, but he doesn't actually NEED it.

Hope this helps. Best of luck with your pup and thanks for visiting my site :) ~ Sue

My mutts are on a crude eating regimen, have been for around 6 months. Everything I can say is, as such, so great. My Malinois who was constantly thin on kibble is an incredible weight and my Kelpie who I couldn't get the weight off on kibble is likewise an awesome weight now. Even I wrote about diet plan at buy cheap coursework. They are solid; their teeth are so white and not any more sickening doggy breath. They adore their sustenance and they get an incredible mixed bag of diverse meats, and so forth.

We feed Proplan and we are happy, so are our rottis. We have tried other brands too, but some give redish colour to fur and poo goes either hard or loose.

Half proplan, half rice & corn + calsium supplement, with broth boiled from cow bones. Occasionally egg, milk, coconat-, rape- or olive oil, raw minced chicken or beef, wet dog food, etc, etc, etc. But basic is always proplan Rice & Chicken.

Last Sat "died" contained beach sand, which looks funny in the poo. :D

They also like to eat grass, specially alfter rain.

I agree that a good premium food is so important!!! I didn't know until I started reading the labels by then it was too late to start my old dog on anything new,but when I adopted Max at 7months old, knowing that rotties are knowing for having hip and joint problems I looked for a food that had the supplements because by the time you notice your dog having problems those supplment products wont work so I am hoping that having them already in the food throughout his life that he may not have those problems later, also most people comment that those foods are to expensive but not only are they so much better for them but they don't eat as much as the cheaper foods with mixed cheap grains,sugars,etc..I have also posted on the site great treat ideas that are natural and also started making my own dog biscuits,milkbones and such are not good for them I found out when my 11yrs old started getting so many fatty tumors it was because as they get older that can't digest the flour and yeast in those products,and if you store your food in plastic containers,stop the plastic absorbs all the nutrients from the food and form bacteria you can use the container just keep the food in the bag,those liners in the bag keep the food fresh,congrats on your new pup and best wishes to you
