FOOD and VITAMINS

I have an 5 month old Rottie male. What would be a good food for him? And does anyone give there dogs vitamins. A friend of mine gives their mastiff a bunch of vitamins and he is the same age.

Re: FOOD and VITAMINS

If you provide a premium quality dog food no supplements should be needed other than those recommended for specific ailments. Assuming your puppy is healthy, Ester-C is a widely used supplement along with Vitamin E and fish oil for healthy coats. Do a search on food here as it has been discussed many times. I am currently feeding Natural Balance, prior to which I used Canidae. California Natural also appears to be well respected, among others.

Re: FOOD and VITAMINS

I think supplementing is as individual a decision as how or what we feed is. It's probably not necessary for a healthy dog, however, I supplement to cover any possible nutrient gaps in the raw diet I feed. I also supplement my own diet.
Best wishes -
