Default Can puppies take multivitamins?

There's no instruction on the bottle as to how old they can take multivitamins, only by weight.
So I was wondering if Archie, who will be 4 months in a couple of days, can start taking them?

Why does he need vitamins? Almost all dogs food (especially the 4-5 star ones) have adequate vitamins for all life stages. Adding vitamins might upset the balance. Unless the vet says he needs vitamins, I'd skip this.

I would be very careful. Over supplementing can do more harm than good, especially if you are feeding kibble.
If you think he needs more vitamins in his diet you need to change what you are feeding, or add more fresh foods to his current diet

Ask the vet for the recommended doseage for glucosomine and chrondotin (sp?) if you want to supplement for joints.
