      Well, you’re right in that you don’t want to use steroids. They are bad for humans so they can’t be any good for dogs either. If you want to give him the perfect diet and you have the funds to do so; give him a full real meat diet. You can mix in some safe veggies like carrots, peas and potatoes if you like. Avoid giving him grains like corn and wheat. If you are going to have him do weight related exercise you need to be cautious and not work him too hard. Start out small and work your way up. You don’t want to wind up injuring your dog. If you are going to go with store bought dog foods, the best advise is to find the ones that have the most meat and the least ingredients possible. You will have to most likely look in a pet store for this and not the grocery store.
