I have female Rottweiler puppy her legs are very weak & thin, help?

Hi All, I have Female Rottweiler puppy. Her legs are very weak & thin but her brothers & sister are very healthy in comparison to her. I am giving her Canobits + 1 Bioled egg (in morning), 1 chapati + Curd (in noon) & homemade food in evening (includes Dal, chapati, Rice, curd & 1 boiled egg). I have visited my vet he gave her Vitamin D3 injection & for few days calcirol pouch and now IC Cal tablet & VM 365 multivitamin. Except legs her overall growth is good. After seeing her legs my breeder suggested me to give her Megaflex (having glucosamin) & Rejoint Tablet (having Glucosamin & Chontrodin Sulpahete). Please suggest me how can i improve her leg's health

protein source (animal protein) is very less. add animal protein. it should be 30-60% of the total diet

Try not to lt her play on slippery floor as this can further aggravate the condition.

well you should add animal protein to the diet. Dogs are unable to process plant protein much but thrive for animal protein. So you can get the meat from the butcher's shop. start with chicken which is the easiest to digest. i guess she would be around 16-18 kg in weight... so initally 500 gm a day with other things would be great.. try not to boil the bones.. if boiling bones too make it its softened n easily crushed..

She weighs around 20 kgs. One thing I can do, I can remove bones before boiling the chicken. Is it Ok?

Anil is right, she need much more protein. Yes, you should remove the bones before cooking it as cooked chicken bones can splinter and rip open her insides.
You should also stop giving her so many eggs. 2 eggs a week max for a puppy her age.

it is suggested that 4 eggs per 50 pound dog per week.. But do not have studies to back it.

well we have the following options for diets 1. Kibbles 2. Homemade. 3. Raw/BARF/PMR 4. Vegan Diet

My personal preference would be 3/2/4/1

Depends how you go about and how the dog reacts. Do not expect results in couple of days. Natural detoxing needs about 2-3 weeks and then it starts to show up. Dog might loose some weight initially due to diet change but not to worry. Its considered detoxing.
The Pottenger Study on cats revealed that cats lived 2 yr longer n healthy than any other diet plan.Enclosed is the study result for 4 generaions.
