How much protein does this dog food contain? Mastiffs typically need to be fed less protein than smaller breed puppies to keep them from growing too fast, which can cause severe joint problems later in life. Puppy food for Mastiffs should not contain more than 28% protein.
I fed my girl Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed Puppy, and I was very happy with the results. She still is on Nutro at 5 years old. Last year I had a full x-ray series done on her, and the large joints--the critical shoulders and hips--are in excellent shape. I would definitely recommend feeding a large or x-large breed puppy food!
