General Nutrition

Rottweilers are carnivores and they love to eat meat. Meat is a very important part of their diet. But you must always check for the amount of nutrients you are providing them by feeding meat or any other food item.

Your Rottweilers need a lot of proteins in their diet. An adult Rottweiler should be served food containing 22% to 26% protein. This estimation varies depending on your Rotties’ age, weight, activity level, and metabolism rate. They need a high protein diet for maintaining their weight.

Rottweilers are more prone to food allergies and obesity. Remember that anything with high-fat content can risk their health and make them ill in the future. The healthy amount of fat content for an adult Rottweiler should be around 12% to 16%. A little more than the required amounts can lead to obesity.

It is wise to stay away from high-fat foods and measure the calories before pouring the food in their bowls.
