– After read this instruction https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-dog-foods/best-large-breed-puppy-food/. I have question about this sentence. Please, explain to me what is it mean.
“Don’t use nutritional supplements when feeding your large breed puppy any commercial diet.””
– My Akita Inu 7months puppy get a curve back. What should I do for her now ?Mike SagmanAdmin
As this article explains, calcium and phosphorus level must remain within a critical range in order to decrease the risk a puppy will develop hip dysplasia later on in life. Adding a supplement to a properly balanced puppy food could easily increase the calcium and/or phosphorus content to a level that’s beyond the maximum safe dose.
Hope this helps.
Yes I understand now.
The curved back may be a muscular development problem and should be evaluated by a vet. It may also be genetic.
It is not genetic, her parents is fine. I think I do something wrong for her.
