Used as watch dogs or simply admired for their size and beauty, dogs of large and giant breeds have their own special needs and characteristics.
As for example, rapid growth, the predisposition to develop disorders in the musculoskeletal system, the tendency for poorly formed stools and still, in the dogs with deep chests, the predisposition for gastric torsion and bloating.
Among all, the main characteristic of these dogs is their accelerated growth. In other words, they gain weight very quickly. Nevertheless, their osteoarticular system is only fully developed by the time they are 1 and a half year old.
A diet with moderate energy prevents the puppy’s bone structure from having to deal with premature weight which is not yet compatible with its incomplete development. This way, the predisposition for joint disease is reduced. PremieR Formula Raças Grandes (Large Breeds) – for Puppies was scientifically formulated to cater to the specific needs of dogs of large and giant breeds.
