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