Like puppies of any breed, large breed puppies require extra calories to support growth and development. However, large breed puppies grow more slowly and are at an increased risk of developing bone deformities. That’s why puppy formulas for large breed dogs should have an optimal ratio of calcium to phosphorus. This helps to ensure appropriate large bone growth rate over the typically extended period of growth time for these big dogs and mitigates against bone deformities.
