    What are feeding guidelines for Rottweiler puppies?

    A:

    Feeding guidelines for Rottweiler puppies follow the same lines as feeding other large breed puppies, which should include puppy food specially formulated for young dogs rather than adult dog food, which does not contain the high amount of nutrients, vitamins and protein that puppy food contains, and then following the directions on the package to determine the proper amount for each feeding. However, the best way to tell if a Rottweiler puppy is receiving the right amount of food is to do a physical test, in which the owner places his or her hands along the spine. If the ribs can be felt but not seen, this is a good indication of health; if the ribs cannot be felt, this is a sign that the dog is overweight and feeding should be reduced.
