Summary: Specific nutrients must be included within a pitbull’s diet to ensure optimal growth and health.

Blue nose pitbulls aren’t only a spectacle due to their unusually satisfying color pigmentation, but they’re also a powerhouse of playfulness and cuteness. Your pitbull pup will be the center of attention, a loyal guardian, and someone that will always be there at your side. In return, it’s your responsibility to care for him as best as you can. The first thing you need to look after is your pitbull’s nutrition and diet.

 

Phosphorous and Calcium

Ask pitbull breeders all around the world and they’ll tell you that it’s preferable that you choose a diet that is specially formulated for larger breeds due to their muscle mass. Large breed puppies have a tendency to grow rapidly at first, but then take their time when it comes to maturing. Because of this process, it’s important to have a balanced amount of phosphorous and calcium in their chow. Most popular brands will have an adequate amount within their product, but always double-check to ensure that it does – not too much and not too little. By giving them these nutrients, you’re essentially developing their lean muscles and strengthening their bone mass to support them.

Pitbulls can weigh anywhere from 30 lbs to 70 lbs and up. Relatively speaking, they can mature to a respectable size at any point in their lives. By keeping them properly fed and exercised, your pitbull will grow into a healthy and strong body that will support them for the years to come. And, with all the genetic diseases that they’ve been known to contract such as cataracts, it’s important that you keep a watchful eye on their maturation process at all times.
