The Neapolitan Mastiff requires a consistent puppy diet during the first year of growth. Irregular feeding patterns, overfeeding, and lack of puppy nutrition can result in down pasterns and or knuckling over in the forelegs. You are what you eat! Common sense indicates to us that if we eat processed "junk food" on a daily basis we are at a higher risk of debilitating diseases. Whereas, if we eat wholesome natural foods we have a better chance of a long healthy active life.The same holds true for our pets. We like many others, were deeply disturbed by several massive pet food recalls in the media recently. Many of the "top" brand dog foods are overcooked which destroys precious nutrients, and are preserved with chemicals like Ethoxyquin, and/or BHA/BHT. As well, the majority of kibble ranges from 40-70% digestibility. Armed with this information we searched around to find what we felt was a "good food" that was cooked at a lower temperature and free of these preservatives. We switched to a Holistic Brand of dog food, which eliminated the preservative issue but still wasn't giving us the optimal level of nutrition that we wanted for our pets. After much research (please before making any decisions do your own research!! Talk to those who have gone that route, hear the good and the bad and make and INFORMED decision) We have now switched over to a natural raw diet (which includes various animal protein sources such as beef, venison, chicken, raw goat milk, yogurt, lamb, tripe, veggies, etc.) Our research has found the dogs on this diet are healthy happy dogs that are thriving, love their food, and are in excellent weight, and have incredible soft and shiny coats! Our Neo's on this diet, which is 97-99% digestible human grade meat and bone, have less fecal output, reduced doggie breath, and it has contributed significantly to cleaning their teeth The best part of this (aside from the overall health benefits of a nutrient rich diet) is that it is now costing less than half of what it was costing us to feed our pets that "better quality" kibble. Species appropriate raw feeding provides optimal nutrition for your dog, but be aware that it does not replace adequate veterinary care. We strongly encourage you no matter what route that you go, to RESEARCH as much as possible. There are many internet groups and websites devoted to this topic. Your pets health is in your hands.
