Since this breed is prone to skin disorders, its diets should be gluten-free and should contain Omega fatty acids. Big dogs thrive on foods rich in protein so ensure they get quality meat such as beef, lamb, and fish. It is completely up to you if you choose homemade or commercial dog food. While home-cooked food is made with fresh ingredients and free from artificial additives, it can cause nutritional deficiencies. Consult your veterinarian and dog nutritionist to ensure your canine is getting the right nutrients. Also make sure that their diet supports bone and joint health.
