Question Supplements?

Do any of you give your dogs multi-vitamin supplements or any kind of joint supplements with glucosamine/MSM/chondroitin? If so what would you recommend?

Diet, nutrition, and supplements are my favorite subject. LOL!!

I do use supplements. We use Nupro for general vitamins/minerals. Some dogs can be sensitive to the flax in it, but it's a good all around supplement. I use it a couple times a week as maintenance.

I think that next time I will get the joint support Nupro as a preventative against LP. Won't hurt and might help.

I also use salmon oil. Platos or Grizzly is a good brand. Again, just a squirt a few times a week.

I occasionally throw Brody a vitamin. He likes these Vetri Science chewables ....

I think they will send you a free sample off their website if you email them.

You can order Nupro from many different stores online. Only Naturals carries it, but is a 5 pound tub, which would last FOREVER!!

I'll do some looking and see if I can find it cheaper for you ....

Edit: Ok, here's a store that has the 1 pound joint support for $13. Much better! Although I haven't ordered from them before.

http://www.nuprostore.com/nuprojointsup.htm

Oh, and here it is on Amazon, even cheaper!!

You guys in the UK have the Yumega brand of oils and they make a salmon one.

It's 100% salmon oil, so that would be perfect. I'd stay away from cod liver oil as it is VERY VERY high in vitamin A and that isn't good for dogs.
