Please tell me the frequency and duration of giving supplements like calcium, multi-vitamins, etc.. to my rottweiler pup ?

Hi Madan
If a Rottweiler pup is eating a well-balanced diet that meets all their specific nutritional needs (see my Feeding Puppies page for details on this), then they normally do not need additional supplements.

Excessive calcium or other minerals/vitamins can actually CAUSE bone/joint problems and other health issues.

If a premium puppy food is difficult to obtain in your area, or you are feeding a home-made diet, you may be interested in checking out this webpage Feed Program For Overseas as it has all the information and help owners of large breeds need if they live in Asia, India or Africa. It also has information on supplements etc.

Hope this helps, best of luck with your pup.

Thanks Susan…..I look forward to all your feedback on this Blog to people who own this lovely breed … the ROTTWEILER !!!! I forgot to mention earlier that my pup SHADOW is now 15 months old and he is beautiful……the initial months gave me sleepless nights owing to his health…and now hopefully we have overcome the worst. 🙂
