The Rottweiler is a larger dog breed and are know for power, prestige and their deep black coat. Their commanding presence sticks out just about anywhere and they are very good guard dogs also.
However, to keep your Rottweiler looking and feeling their best, some up keep is needed. A dog of this size needs proper nutrition on a daily basis that only a well balanced diet can bring. And most of the time, unless you are feeding a complete raw homemade diet, you are going to need to use something along with their food to help supplement their diet.
Do not make the mistake of thinking you can guess what’s exactly good for your rot. If you are feeding homemade food there is a good chance you are doing very well for your dog. But the best way is to either supplement or follow an approved diet you know is rich in all the minerals and vitamins your dog needs daily.
Using A Quality Supplement
Your dog requires their meals to be well balanced to make sure they are getting everything needed with every meal. And, you also do not want to over do it when it comes to supplementation.
This is why a good quality supplement like Bully Max can help take your Rottweiler to the next level they need to be at. Bully Max contains just the right amount in their ingredients, to help round out your dogs diet to make it balanced.
You can also add this supplement to their food by crushing it up or giving it to your dog whole.
By using a quality vitamin daily, you will begin to see changes in your dog from their coat to their endurance. And, when you are any supplement to your dogs diet, take your time. Do not ever feed too much too fast. Just start out with a very lose dose of the recommended dose. This allows your dog time to get used to the supplement and also, make sure they are not allergic to it.
Then over the course of a few days, you can then begin adding in more as it calls for on the bottle.
How Much Do I Give?
This will change from product to product. And it also depends on, what and how much you are feeding your dog also and how active your dog is already. If your Rottie is pretty active currently and still in their younger years than, you can go with more of a protein based supplement. However, if your dog is less active then you will want to use a supplement with less protein.
Defining Nutrition Goals For Your Dog
Most dog owners never think about goals when it comes to their dogs but it’s a great idea to start a goal plan. You may want your dog to achieve more muscle or mass. Or, you just might want your dog to lose some weight.
Whatever, your goals start with talking to your vet first. They can help you set a standard for your dog and where you want to be later on. Then, after you have your goals in mind, it’s time to set the plan into action.
Do I Need To Exercise My Dog With Supplementing?
Dogs love to run and play just about every chance they get. And yes, it’s a great idea to get your dog at-least one hour of exercise a day. But again, everything can and will also come down to the goals you have set for your dog.
What Supplement Should I Use?
We prefer Bully Max food and supplements because we know they are quality. But, there are many companies out there you can choose from. Just make sure, the supplement you use for your dog is human grade and all natural. You don’t want anything synthetic or man made. This can cause undo stress on your dogs organs and lead to many different kinds of diseases later in life.
What Should I Expect When Using Vitamins?
We get asked this question a lot and the answer is very simple. Just be careful what supplement you choose, you don’t want your dog to over do it when it comes to excess vitamins. But, you can expect a better and improved immune system, a healthier looking coat and better skin, increased energy, better stool formation and much more.
How Do I know If My Dog is Deficient in Nutrients?
This is a very good question and the honest answer is, you truly do not know unless, you know what signs to look for in your dog or have them tested. The only true way to know what your dog is low in is by having them tested with a quality test. This will allow you to focus on what they need most. Most Vets don’t ever do testing of this type but it can truly help your dog.
Diet & nutrition Needs
Rottweilers are larger active dogs with a fairly good amount of energy. So they may tend to eat more then other dogs. All dogs are carnivores and the rott is no exception.
This means they need plenty of good raw meat to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Stay away from corns, gains and soy foods that tend to cause allergies and skin problems. You should stick to only foods that list whole meats as the first ingredients. A good balanced diet is one where protein comes first along with healthy animal fats.
