Within a short span of time, a Rottweiler puppy will grow quite large. They weigh one pound at birth and can weigh up to 16 pounds in two months. To accommodate their rapid growth, it is important to balance your puppy’s nutrients during feedings. When puppies lack nutrients, their bones and joints will not develop properly. Feeding your Rottweiler puppy properly is the key to starting him on the path to good health.
Allow the mama Rottweiler to feed her puppy for the first three weeks. Your puppy will get all of his required nutrients from her. Start the weaning process between weeks three and four.
Buy premium puppy food. Purchase puppy food with natural ingredients. Make sure that the food has a high protein content. Purchase food with real meat instead of meat by-products.
Use puppy formula. Cow’s milk can cause diarrhea and is hard for puppies to digest. Use formula for puppies that still need milk and water.
Feed your puppy according to the guidelines outlined on your dog food package. Feed him at the same time each day and increase the amount of food given as your puppy grows.
